    I use rblsmtpd with -r servername parameter with 5 different rblserver.

    I want to query an ip address fron rblsmtpd from console for spesific server.( i don't want to query from servers website ) is there any parameter to test an ip ?

    > /usr/sbin/rblsmtpd -r bl.spamcop.net

    rblsmtpd: pid 10950: 451 v=spf1 -all
    220 rblsmtpd.local

    > /usr/sbin/rblsmtpd -r sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org
    rblsmtpd: fatal: unable to run file does not exist

    Second one;

    I want to ignore myclient's ip's from rblsmtpd
    If i add an ipaddresses to mydns server like
    safedomain in A ipnumber ;
    after i add myservers ip a parameter to rblsmtpd with -a
    can i exclude these ip's from RBLsmtpd ?

    Hi Gumush,

    rblsmtpd isn't meant to be used this way. But it uses reverse dns-lookup. So to check you need to either use:

    1. dig (repeat for other rbls)
    2. install rblcheck from rblcheck.sourceforge.net

    You can use your own dns-server but you need to set-up reverse dns for the ip's you want to anti-rbl.

    Remember to put the -a options before the -r otherwise it won't work.

    i'll try rblcheck.

    us rbl systems only dns servers ?

    Yes, as far as I know it only uses dns.

    At lease rblsmtpd does, perhaps other solutions have other capabilities.
