Debian and rblsmtpd

    Im trying to get rblsmtpd to work using the standard psa provided package, however I dont believe it is working.

    After lots reading up on rblsmtp and how plesk uses it, I think my problem is related to the fact that debian still uses inetd instead of xinetd, and the plesk installer does not activate rblsmtpd in inetd.

    Here is my smtp line from inetd:

    smtp stream tcp nowait root /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env tcp-env /var/qmail/bin/relaylock /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /var/qmail/bin/smtp_auth /var/qmail/bin/true /var/qmail/bin/cmd5checkpw /var/qmail/bin/true

    I cant see anywhere where it is running rblsmtpd. Anyone know the correct syntax in inetd when using rblsmtpd?

    This is probably a bug in the debian installer of plesk, im hoping i can just manually add the rblsmtpd command into the smtp line above.

    Any assistance will be appreciated.

    i can just confirm this problem.
    i have debian 3.1, installed a fresh copy of plesk 7.5.4 and do have this problem, there is no rblsmtpd in /etc/inetd.conf

    so i manually added rblsmtpd this way:

    smtp stream tcp nowait root /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env tcp-env -Rt0 /usr/sbin/rblsmtpd -r bl.spamcop.net -r relays.ordb.org /var/qmail/bin/relaylock /var/qmail/bin/greylist /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /var/qmail/bin/smtp_auth /var/qmail/bin/true /var/qmail/bin/cmd5checkpw /var/qmail/bin/true

    this will not work, smtp cannot accept new external connection after that change and spamassassin got errors such bad protocol: header error.
    any other ways to enable MAPS on debian?
    it is not a DNS problem.

    There is this thread, see the posts from Shadowman and _Tek, he says he got it working by installing xinetd onto the debian server and then running rblsmtpd in xinetd.

    Note: I do not use Debian, all I am doing is posting links to additional information about your problem which I remembered seeing in previous posts. I hope this helps you find a solution.
