like suicide driving a friend of mine suggested removing the airbag from cars and replacing it with a spike aimed at the driver.

Because of things like Flash etc. I am generally sticking with 32-bit Linux for desktop use. 64-bit is working great in the server universe, though.

Cool. I just installed OpenVZ on my server. It rocks. Soooo easy to install and configure containers.

I'm gonna put in separate containers for dev, test, and prod.

Subject: SMTP- Relay - Smarthost

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Just trying to get my own citadel server setup as a test. I come from a windows  world, so I am still learning. but I installed the citadel suite on ubuntu server 9.10 and tried to setup a smart host under Administration> Domain names and Internet mail configuration>Smarthosts. My isp(verizon) obviously blocks port 25, so I tried to send out the verizion smtp server on port 587. So my smarthost entry is username:password@outgoing.verizon.net:587 but when I try to send an outgoing email, it comes back with a Must issue a STARTTLS command first. I have also tried using gmail with the same issue and a hotmail account with invalid/host-not-in-DNS return address not allowed

Any thoughts?

thanks,

Jeffrey Showalter

you're in the wrong room.

citadel doesn't support TLS for relaying.

maybe stunnel and port 465 can help you out?

So, it's been around 2 years since I looked at calendaring on linux.. now here I am once again, with an exchange server and a linux desktop. I would like to use Lightning or Sunbird, but they still say no Exchange support.
Is there any way around this that has come up in the last few years? I am open to any solution (including web based if necessary) as long as it runs on linux and can work with the Exchange server.

It's been a while since I've used it, but doesn't Exchange's Outlook Web Access (OWA) let you get to the calendar? Or is it e-mail only?

For whatever reason, they don't have the exchange web interface here, they are using squirrelmail via IMAP, even though it is an exchange server.

Calendar and contacts.

Evolution can supposedly connect to the groupware features of Exchange.

maybe the openmapi stuff has brought something useable to light? though its done in c-carpet.

But I think Evolution requires Outlook Web Access to have that data, if they're using Squirrelmail as a front-end, it won't work.

True.  It accesses Exchange using the DAV service built into Outlook Web Access.

Yea, Evolution uses WebDAV. It is weird that they don't have OWA paired with Exchange as is usually the case.. it is probably because this division, when they were acquired, was an all-linux shop (except perhaps for some accounting/business things) and is still mainly linux on the desktop. People are now given a choice of linux or windows on their desktop, and the larger company we are a part of is all windows. I was given two machines on my desktop.. rather a laptop with docking station, and a desktop, with a little Belkin KVM switch (which sucks by the way), the desktop is XP and the laptop is linux (ubuntu).
So I didn't have to make a choice. There are some corporate internal apps (HR type stuff.. time sheets, performance reports, benefits etc) that require Windows and in fact require being on a different network, and since I am managing people I rated two machines and didn't have to choose. So I could just run Outlook and get it over with. But I decided that I wanted to keep the laptop (linux) as my primary machine and only switch to windows for the HR stuff. So far I have only had two roadblocks to getting my major stuff on linux, the first being this calendar thing, the second being a Scrum app (yea they do scrum here) which is actually a java app, but JNLP of course is not working on linux, and I am fighting with it. I asked a couple of people and they were like, oh yea, java got uupgraded and it broke everything and I gave up and started using Windows...

Interesting. Most people want to go the other way (connect their legacy-hugging Outlook users to a non-Exchange server), for which there are a number of good solutions availab.e

From what I've heard, the reason people have trouble with the DAV solution is that Microsoft doesn't keep that API very stable.

If you've got both machines, can't you just run Outlook on the dozebox and remote over to it?

yea... Evolution is better in connecting exchange than opensource solutions. We all know.

 

Why don't you get a windows terminalserver box into the rack and just access it with RDP?

 

A Non-portable java app, nice ;-)

Well, "the rack" is someone elses job and I doubt they are going to set up a machine there just for me to get to the calendar. Besides, I have a windows box right on my desk. The point is that my primary box is a linux box and I want to see the calendar there, I am not gonna flip back and forth between boxes all day long just to keep an eye on my calendar.. some things I can flip for, but a calendar that is reminding you what you need to do and when you need to do it is something I want in front of me all the time.

Anyway, it turns out to not be a really big problem for now, because I installed Lightning into Thunderbird and it happily notices the meeting invitations that come from Exchange and asks me if I want to put them on my calendar.
That is good enough for now since I am not scheduling anything myself that other people need to know about, so I don't need to send invitations or put things into the Exchange calendar (yet).

That'll work. By the way, are you familiar with seamless RDP? With a tiny extension installed on your dozebox you can bring individual application windows over to your Real Computer using rdesktop. That can prevent even more toggling back and forth between machines.
