Wondering if anyone knows of an email DNSBL that are have a real time reporting tool which directly feeds the DNSBL?
I have been using Spamcop for reporting in hopes I might be able to get some IP's listed. However so far I have not seen any IP's listed until many hours or days after they are reported (possibly going through a validation process?).
Wondering if anyone knows a more pro-active DNSBL that is fed directly by reporting and administrators?
I'm trying to find a low cost solution for realtime file share replication in a windows environment.
It doesn't look like there are any open source windows cluster filesystems around, so the only viable option I found would be running OpenFiler in a replication cluster on Hyper-V nodes. Has anyone worked with this, does it work reliably?
The required IO throughput on these shares would really be minimal and my biggest concern is 100% availability.
I want to pass on a warning before anyone goes with iWEB. I just ordered a $269 a month dedicated server so I could run vmware on it for my own virtual machines that I need.
With this server I got 7 IPs.
The primary IP they assigned me is say for example: 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. The secondary ips they issue me are 70.xx.18.249-254. So these are on a completly different subnets.
After talking on the phone to several differnt people including tech support who tells me this will work jsut fine useing thoes secondary ips on my VMs and to not put a gateway address. I talk to my account manager he says to open a ticket that he will forward to their system admins.
This is the ticket I opened.
I just got a new server set up CL-T113-140CL. It was assigned the primary ip of 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. My secondary ips are 70.xx.18.249-254. The server we got from you is a VMWare host. We need to use the secondary IPs for the Guest VMs. How ever the primary and secondary IPS are on different subnets and so the VMs useing the IPs 70.xx.18.249-254 can not talk to the gateway. I need to have a gateway server IP to use for my VMs.
Please either give me a valid GW address for the 70.38.19.x subnet or assign new secondary IPs on teh 70.xx.15.x subnet with a SM that can talk to the 70.xx.15.161 GW assigned.
this is the reply I get back from their system adminstrator
The gateway to be used for your secondary IP addresses is the same as the one for your primary. You should not have anything to change, gateway-wise. Just leave the current one as default gateway and everything should work just fine.
If there is anything please do not hesitate to contact us.

Are they brain dead at iWEB? DO they understand basic TCP-IP networking at all?
Here is my last reply. I tried to make it real simple for them to understand.
This does not address the issues. Do you even know what a virtual machine is? It is a virtual computer running on the host computer. The host computer has a valid ip address of 70.xx.15.171, sm: 255.255.255.224 gw: 70.xx.15.161. The virtual machines (or guest operating systems) if I assign it the IP address of 70.xx.18.249 SM: 255.255.255.248 with no gateway it is physically impossible for it to reach the gateway of the host pc 70.xx.15.161. You have to understand the Virtual Machine operates as a completely separate computer. It requires its own gateway. with no gateway specified it has no way to get out of its local subnet to get to the 70.xx.15.x subnet. What happens if you put two physical computers on one hub. The computer on port 1 of the hub has the IP info 70.xx.15.171 SM: 255.255.255.224 GW 70.xx.15.161. The second computer is on port 2. It has the ip info of: 70.xx.18.249 SM: 255.255.255.248 GW: NONE. How is the pc on port 2 going to communicate with the pc on port 1? This is the exact situation we are in. There has to be a gateway to route the IP traffic from pc2 to pc1 to get onto the internet.
if there is anyway that IIS 6.0 can do reporting of the websites that are running on it. For example I would like to get the local IP address and host header values for them. I can do it manual by going to each website but that will take forever. It seems like there should be a easier way.
One friend I host sites for is reporting 492MB in WHM, but running DU reports 5.4GB for just one site!!! I've had the DC run Quotafix, but it's still not correct. The site is drupal and DC said they can't even list the tmp folder for that account. Any suggestions so I don't loose $45/month in extra charges? I have no clue how many months this is been going on, but it's costing me allot it seems.
I just leased a server through EV1. It's Linux (I think), Apache, and Plesk 8.0. I'm trying to get error reporting to work for my php scripts. I opened up the php.ini file (I'm about 90% sure that it's the right php.ini file) found in the /etc folder. I changed error reporting to "on" and restarted my server with Plesk.
I rebooted my server and now munin is not showing any eth0 traffic. All other graphs are fine. I can see there is a ton of apache accesses so there is definitely eth0 traffic. Munin logs report no errors. I restarted munin and munin-node. I even did 'yum remove munin munin-node' and reinstalled again but it still doesn't work for eth0.
We've got a client who is using both AWstats and Webalizer and they are claiming the numbers are different between the two and that the numbers reported are not accurate. They need a specific list on how many impressions they are getting on a daily, weekly and monthly time period for advertisers.
Did microsoft require your host email them and say "[you] have exclusive sending rights for this IP"?
Here is the part of the email from microsoft:
xx, unfortunately, we have not received an e-mail confirmation from your ISP, [host], for your IP x.x.x.x. Please ask them to re-send the e-mail confirmation to [email] with the [id] subject. Please also ask them to include you on the "To" or "Cc" field in case that we fail to receive their e-mail confirmation.
Is this a requirement for everybody?
I signed up for AOL's junk reporting program a few months ago and I didn't have to bother anybody about it.
If I recall correctly, all AOL cared about was whether or not my reverse DNS was set properly.
I had a short-lived episode where one of my customers was spamming. I was able to shut it down quickly, but not quick enough to avoid getting SMTP blacklisted by RCN. The response from their mail servers is:
SMTP error from remote mail server after initial connection: host mx.lnh.mail.rcn.net [126.96.36.199]: 554 mx05.lnh.mail.rcn.net
No information there on what blacklist system they use, or how to get de-listed. Nothing that I can find on RCN's web site. Mail to postmaster is ignored. Mail to support is ignored. Can't get past 1st-level support over the phone. I'm stuck. Blacklisted and can't get off.
This just happened to my server about a week ago. Folks complaining they cannot get their signup emails etc, me not getting server notifications etc etc. Sure enough, showing up on a blacklist, one that checks the /24 block. So I am penalized for somebody else in block spamming.
I tried to setup godaddy email on the server, it works but not for internal emails FROM server (ie using php script to notify somebody or me). I added the mx records to the WHM and it does not work, I tried to add site to /etc/remotedomains and remove from the remotedomains but that does not work.
somebody mentioned using pears SMTP mail method, but then would have to change all the code, ugh. how can I change the main servers relay so ALLLLL email will be relayed through the godaddy servers instead of the default it is using. i am running Exim.
We've had a couple cases of fraud recently, and have blacklisted the IPs (which turned out to be proxy servers) of the perpetrators. It got me thinking... has anybody put together any kind of IP blacklist for fraudulent orders? Something like a DNSBL for spam, but focused on IPs that fraudsters use?
I can only assume that I have a virus or adware on my server but Acunett says that there is nothing. I double checked all of my email sending php scripts and all of them are secure and not sending any spam. However in my mail queue in WHM I see spam emails and my server's IP keeps getting relisted on the blacklist located at:
AM I THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WITH THIS PROBLEM? This is getting frustrating I have probably spent over 200 hours trying to get this resolved but it seems like no one knows what to do. This is hurting my business since I have tons of emails stacked in my queue and being blocked by email providers due to that blacklist. I remove my server's IP successfully and the next day it is blacklisted again. If anything how can I check my linux server for viruses?
I am a reseller for SkyNetHosting.Net for about 3 months now and yes we are new in hosting business. For this pass 2 months I'm having issues with my host server firewall. Every time I get myself blacklist I have to summit a ticket asking for my IP to be whitelist. Its fine with me but I don't think my clients are happy with this as we are getting almost 90% non-renewal rate..
They keep saying its my fault.. Ok, I can take that.. But how do I explain to my clients and most importantly my client's visitors??
Is there anything on the firewall settings that they should tweak to minimize this?
I never had any problem when I was at hostgator...
My user experience with you guys so far has been excellent, especially the support department and if I were to single out your tech support employee, it has to be Nathan. Thumbs up for his fast and reliable support.
However I have one major complain.. And that is your firewall issue as I keeps getting block/blacklist even for a mere moment of connecting to Luna Server for less than 10sec. Yes, you heard me.. just 10sec after i login to the internet and browse my sites there is a high possibility of my IP getting blacklist.
We're not a pure web hosting company, we received more web design projects where by they also host their website on our server. So you see, we maintain most of our clients website and regular FTP to multiple websites are required.
Here are the list of things I would do 1st thing when I login to internet, including my employee and my business partner. So if we multiply the below by 4 .. We will get blacklist for sure, most of the times!!
1. Login WHMCS 2. Login Livezilla Chat Support 3. Login webmail to check emails 4. FTP Updates on clients sites
I hope you guys can re-look into the firewall sensitivity settings where by it reduce or better still does not effect us business wise.
My Host reply to ticket
I recommend to change ALL your FTP/cPanel passwords at once and if you are saving them on browser, FTP clients not to do it anymore. If possible try to login from a deferent clean laptop/PC and see if you get the same problem.
Customers who save their FTP login credentials in FTP softwares like FileZilla, Cute-FTP, WS_FTP-Pro, Dreamweaver or Frontpage are prone to malicious scripts injections from their PC's using their legit cPanel login details via FTP and the owner of the domain/account were not even aware of it. Your login credentials are leaked to the hackers once a Trojan or Virus gets installed on your Windows Machine.
The easiest way to save your login credentials would be, to save them in a text document without saving the Domain name or Login Host information in the same document. To be absolutely sure your FTP account won’t get compromised, we highly recommend you choose a strong password which contains a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters such as $?£;: while adding a new FTP login name from your cpanel control panel. If you manage multiple websites may not like this change, but losing your data and then losing your rankings in Search Engines will create more trouble.
Honestly I don't think this issue can be resolve on the user end as we are currently facing a monthly non-renewal rate of 90% from our clients. If this goes on we would end up losing our reputation and most importantly our business.
Yes, I can tell them the same message that your tech support replied to me. But my clients do not understand and they would rather find a host that are less complicated "firewall sensitive". Is there somehow you can recalibrate the firewall sensitivity, so we all can have our peace?

My Cpanel username is 'justin'.
This is with regards to my problem with the IP whitelist.
I need a no-nonsense answer.
I have visitors from the US complaining that they cannot view my site.
I cannot possibly be whitelisting everyone.
So, is it possible to tweak the filtering/firewall settings?
If it is not possible, I would like to exercise my money-back guarantee and close my account.
I would like a day to download my files and databases if that is possible.
I'd like to keep an IP blacklist, and have Apache enforce it. Because I want it to apply server-wide, I want to use it in httpd.conf, not .htaccess.
Rather than constantly editing httpd.conf by hand, I'd like to keep a file of IPs, and have Apache read that file and use it as the argument for a "deny from..." directive. Try as I might, I cannot find any documentation, nor any examples, of this usage. Is this something that's possible?
(It turns out that Apache doesn't honor /etc/hosts.deny, hence this question.)
