SSH Key Auth Instead Of Password Auth

Feb 17, 2007

Anyone using SSH key authentication only, instead of password authentication only for server connections?

Reason I ask is, cPanel are now recommending it as opposed to password connections, as it should defeat / prevent brute-force attacks.

I attached a service node to PPA using public key by following [URL] ....

But when I check tasks, Configure PA agent on node 'ip-10-0-0-24' fails with message: SSH communication error: SSH auth via password failed

I correctly configured ssh by pub keys. I can SSH into service node with ip from PPA management node without any issue.

PostfixAdmin + Exim Auth

Oct 27, 2009

I am trying to get Exim + postfixAdmin working with auth. I know its possible, im just making a silly error somewheres.

Currently i have this in my exim.conf

driver = plaintext
public_name = PLAIN
server_condition = ${lookup mysql{SELECT `username` FROM
`mailbox` WHERE `username` =
'${quote_mysql:$auth2}' AND `password` =
server_prompts = :
server_set_id = $auth2

driver = plaintext
public_name = LOGIN
server_condition = ${lookup mysql{SELECT `username` FROM
`mailbox` WHERE `username` =
'${quote_mysql:$auth1}' AND `password` =
server_prompts = Username:: : Password::
server_set_id = $auth1

driver = cram_md5
public_name = CRAM-MD5
server_secret = ${lookup mysql{SELECT `password` FROM
`mailbox` WHERE `username`
= '${quote_mysql:$auth1}'}{$value}fail}
server_set_id = $auth2

If I edit the mysql query to not check against the password, it auths. If i add the password check in, fails.. I cant seem to build a proper query.

PASS IN MYSQL: $1$a4c01247$Np/5HoaeQfe/.IS8flWxe0

Exim: 4.64

SMTP Auth From A Relay: How Do I Get Around This

Jul 17, 2008

I'd like to describe an issue and see if this sounds familiar to anyone, or if there is a solution that I have not thought of yet.

CAUSE: My ISP (yeah, it's comcast) began blocking port 25 inbound so my personal mail server was no longer receiving mail.

RESOLUTION: I worked through a new DNS re-router to change the port that would now receive mail: from port 25 to port 587. It took me a while to get the routes pointed correctly, but I finally got the messages to route, get through my firewall, and hit the mail server.

NEW PROBLEM: After some IP and DNS routing issues, I finally got things to work, the email that gets sent finally arrives at my mail server. However, the mail server (Alt-N MDaemon) now requires AUTH from the incoming DNS re-direct.

BIG QUESTION: How do I configure MDaemon mail server (or any other mail server, for that matter) to accept the mail from the new re-route server? Mail now re-directed to the new port ALWAYS comes from that route ( Where in the configuration settings of MDaemon do I set it up? I've tried including the host name and the IP address into every WhiteList list I can find, added it to the trusted host name list and everything. I'm at a loss, since it's impossilbe to configure the re-route server to provide AUTH credentials to my mail server. MDaemon now replys to every mail reuqest with : 530

Authentication required (in reply to MAIL FROM command)

But users cannot send email using the server as outgoing mail server with

It says:

Forbidden You don't have permission to access /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I have done the following: uninstalled /re installed extensions via whm (same error)

.htaccess is default frontpage's code only, nothing else

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Dovecot Cannot Auth In AWS AMI

Jun 28, 2015

This is a fresh installation in AWS using AMI for Plesk 12.

When installed with Dovecot I got this error when trying to login to mail:

Jun 28 12:23:44 server1 dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (auth failed, 1 attempts in 2 secs): user=<>, method=DIGEST-MD5, rip=, lip=, secured, session=<mfryjpUZdgB/AAAB>

If I switch to Courier works perfect:

Jun 28 12:35:53 server1 courier-imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
Jun 28 12:35:53 server1 courier-imapd: LOGIN,, ip=[::ffff:], port=[35677], protocol=IMAP
Jun 28 12:35:53 server1 courier-imapd: LOGOUT,, ip=[::ffff:], headers=0, body=0, rcvd=52, sent=156, time=0

In normal servers or under Virtuozzo (formerly Parallels Cloud Server) Dovecot works without problem.

Postfix SMTP Auth (Relay) Problem

Apr 2, 2009

I've been trying to set up Postfix to send email for the past few days. I've managed to get it to ask for a username and password, in order to try and send mail to an external domain

I can receive email fine on the server, but I can't send email out

Here is my file

command_directory = /usr/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/lib/postfix
data_directory = /var/lib/postfix
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
mynetworks =
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_inet_interfaces permit_sasl_authenticated reject_unauth_destination
mynetworks_style = class
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
allow_untrusted_routing = yes
relay_domains =
smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_inet_interfaces
smtpd_sasl_application_name = smtpd
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = $mydomain
smtp_sasl_mechanism_filter = !plain, static:rest
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtp_sasl_mechanism_filter = login
myorigin =
mydomain =
myhostname =
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain

When I try to login to send the email, it doesn't accept the password.

Sendmail - SMTP Auth & Max Emails Per Hour

Apr 6, 2009

I have Cpanel, with the "Prevent Nobody from sending emails" in the WHM>Tweak Settings enabled.

I want to force sendmail to use SMPT auth.. so that all mails sent are sent via SMPT and an authenticated POP user.
I guess this will help in limiting the "The maximum each domain can send out per hour" setting.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: FTPs With TLS / SSL - AUTH Not Understood

Mar 22, 2015

I just migrated from a CentOS 5 server with Plesk 11.5 to a new server with CentOS 6.6 Plesk 12.

All customers, resellers, domains, subscriptions and even FTP users have been migrated fine (great tool btw).

There's only one thing what I cannot get to work on the new server: FTPs (TLS/SSL), this always results in "AUTH not understood".

The security and FTP settings are exactly the same as the old server (where FTPs worked fine), so I guess something is missing on the server.

What can I do to have a proper working FTPs with TLS/SSL?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Dovecot And Postfix - SASL Auth And TLS?

Sep 15, 2014

Ubuntu 14.04 with Plesk 12 (10 Domain License).Using this for mail only... multiple domains.Postfix and Dovecot installed. Trying to figure out how to do:

- SASL Auth (Dovecot)
- want above two to be mandatory... no plain text auth and no unencrypted connections.

How do I achieve this with Plesk 12?I have found countless how-to's about doing this with Vanilla (non Plesk) installs with the same server software. However, Postfix and both appear to have specific Plesk modificatuons. Same thing for the related Dovecot conf files... also have Plesk specific modifications.

I see no way to enable the desired settings from the Plesk Panel. Can't achieve this within the Panel but also can't modify the conf files without potentially breaking some Plesk-specific functionality? My original hope in purchasing the Plesk license was to make administration of the mail server easier. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to do this now and may have already had this figured out had I not bothered with the Panel.

Apache :: Basic Auth User Not Logged In Common Log File

Jul 18, 2013

I use Basic Auth to limit access to a web site. This seems to work ok. I noticed though in the logs that the logged in user is not logged:

80.....188 - - [16/Jul/2013:09:56:29 +0200] "GET ..." 200 1844 "...." " ...

I would expect the second - to be replaced by the logged in user. The doc says, the user is logged if the document is protected. I do protect the whole directory using directory match. Without log in I fail to retrieve the document in question.
