I forgot this other link, read this:

https://community.plus.net/t5/Library/Testing-SMTP-Authentication-using-Telnet/ba-p/1322433

Here you can encode your user and password:
http://www.webpan.com/Customers/Email/base64_conversion.htm

This is only so you can test and see the responde of the citadel server;
don't forget to see the logs in /var/log/syslog after each try.

Try to run this from a terminal in your server; maybe it helps
to known
the issue.

https://linuxconfig.org/send-an-email-using-telnet
https://telegra.ph/Send-an-email-using-Telnet-03-20

Both links shows the same info, just in case the first goes the

question

Hi,

I have an external server domain called: noddy.com, for
example and
my local VM with citadel installed is called just citadel.

I have citadel listening on noddy.com, and incoming messages
work
fine, however outgoing SMTP messages do not get delivered.

When I send a message the sender is called bmentink@citadel,
how do
I get it to be called bmentink@noddy.com? Is this the issue?

I have ports 25,143 forwarded from noddy.com to citadel VM.

Any idea's

Thanks



An update, I have tried the troubleshooting suggestions for
outbound
SMTP connections, and everything looks fine, so Port 25 is ok ..

Does anyone have any suggestions for the host question?

HI, Thanks for the response. WHat do you mean by executing those
commands, do you mean

telnet https://linuxconfig.org/send-an-email-using-telnet

Because that just returns:

telnet: could not resolve
https://linuxconfig.org/send-an-email-using-telnet/telnet: Name
or service not known

Cheers,

Bernie



Oh, I see, you want me to send the commands at that link. :)

I did that, I managed to connect to my mail server, but I can't proceed
as it wants me to log in to send mail ...

MAIL FROM: bmentink@myserver.com
550 You must log in to send mail from myserver.com

Do I need to somehow make my server auto login for SMTP messages ?

Ahhh, I think I see the problem.  The "From:" address field was bmentink@citadel which is the node name, gmail obviously thew it's hands up at that.

I have to go into the SMTP settings and set the option:

Only change the From: header if the address is not valid for the user

That has fixed the "From:" header to my domain name ..

 

Thanks anyway.

Subject: CentOS Citadel Raspberry Pi

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Good morning,
I downloaded the CentOS image for Raspberry Pi from the official website, installed it on the card, launched it, and then I try to install Citadel.

During installation, when the port is indicated, the easy installer will encounter the problem described in the FAQ help:
"setup crashes right after asking for the port number"

The solution is:
Edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and turn off the 'db' services if you're not using them. (This problem tends to appear on Debian Linux systems.)

Most lines in this file are commented out.
Can you help me solve the problem ?

Subject: WebCit : http-auth

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi all,

I am looking at webcit for implenting a SSO solution based on http-auth (http basic authentation)

I. According to the webcit code (webcit.c and auth.c) http-auth is supported. If authentication data is available in http-auth or cookie, the login is automatically performed.

In order to validate this option , I have tried the login based on curl as follows

1. curl -u admin:password https://citadel.xxx.yyy

2 curl https://admin:passwod@citadel.xxx.yyy

3. from script

BASIC_AUTH_USER="admin"
BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD="password"

AUTH=$(echo -ne "$BASIC_AUTH_USER:$BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD" | base64 --wrap 0)

curl \
  --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --header "Authorization: Basic $AUTH" \
  --request POST \
  --data  '{"key1":"value1", "key2":"value2"}' \
  https://citadel.xxx.yyy/

All of them are working and I can successfully receive the login page. With the third option, this could be used by  my Identity provider to implement SSO since it is able to forward the http-auth data.

This method could be the simplest to implement SSO for webcit/citadel.

II. Unfortunately, from the browser (firefox,chrome,,..),  none of these above methods works.

For example, with the url https://admin:passwod@citadel.xxx.yyy, It is redirected and looped to the default ajax login page.

I am wondering why in the browser, i cannot successfully get the login page as with curl?

If the default login page is the cause, how to skip the this default login?

Any idea is welcome.

Thanks in advance

Best regards,

Duc

Does your identity provider support OpenID? Citadel has OpenID support built in.

state that Citadel can be used as a wiki .

Create a room with the "wiki" view.

By default, you will be placed on the start page. Click "Edit this page" to begin creating the start page.

In the editor, you can create two types of links:
1. If the link is a full URL, it will take the user to that external site.
2. If the link is the name of another page, it will create a link to that page.

Creating a link to a page that does not exist, will behave similarly to the start page: you'll get a blank page and you can click "Edit this page" to create it.

It's extremely simple to use ... and you don't even need to use Wiki markup!

Yes. The NNTP interface is incomplete. We started developing it during a collaboration project with another developer, and development was halted when we discovered that he just wanted to use it to expand the reach of an anti-semitic hate site.

Someday we might finish it.

It sounds a bit unfortunate. I really love NNTP. Anyway, I wonder how you can use a Citadel node with NNTP to extend the reach of a website.

Hello!

I'm installing Citadel using the EasyInstall script with Curl.

I have tried it on:

Ubuntu 16

Ubuntu 18

Centos 7

Centos 8

Everything installs and compiles fine, however when I get to the end where it asks for the Citidal <Server Port Number> It scrolls wildly in the terminal. The same result on ALL those tried OS's.

I have even tried via local connections and terminals on those machines with the same result. 

Is there a problem with the script?
