NetBSD network tuning thread, 2010-01-27 00:00:00 #
The recent thread shows application of old recommendations found . (NetBSD 2-era; also includes tips for freebsd, linux, and windows!) This thread also shows NMBCLUSTERS cropping up again as the first part of solving a performance problem. I wonder why it isn't dynamicially tunable. It looks like freebsd can pass it on the boot options, at least.
NetBSD - still fun, 2010-01-22 00:00:00 #
. This reminds me of a study I wanted to see a few years ago of how much of linux was corporate sponsored development and, truly, . Now, I only know of , and I helped pay for it by ! So remember when you're using NetBSD that it truly happened (and continues to do so) by miracles, charity, and general insanity which I find more appealing than cubicles. I'm in one of those all day anyway. :)
NetBSD postfix to gmail relay, 2010-01-18 00:00:00 #
Over the weekend I decided to configure my NetBSD system to stop sending emails to the local mbox (where I never read them) and start sending emails correctly to the internet. I also wanted to do so using my gmail account. Most of my info came from but it's a little verbose for my tastes. Basically I had to do the following: Now test with mailx firstname.lastname@example.org and watch the maillog. I do get a warning about not liking the thawt cert, so I may figure out how to import it, but other tutorials all talked about needing your own CA and other insanity. I would hope the MUST in tls_policy insured that I was using SSL. I'll tcpdump and see sometime, but for now this seems to be all that's needed. (Can we get SASL in base? I know LDAP, kerberos, and NFSv4 would appreciate it) UPDATE! To fix the ssl cert warning, add the following package: mozilla-rootcerts then cd /etc/openssl/certs mozilla-rootcerts extract mozilla-rootcerts rehash And add the following to your main.cf: smtp_tls_CApath = /etc/openssl/certs
