Only SMTPS SSL/TLS on port 465 will be supported.

What needs to be configured on citadel to make that work?  

Set your smart-host to something like:

smtps://username:password@mail.isp.com:465

Hint: Citadel will accept any valid SMTP or SMTPS URL as a smart-host.

Subject: Citserver with LDAP authentication does not start

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

Citserver fails to start at the end of easyinstall. It fails the same way by starting it manually.
Citserver writes to syslog always:
      Your system is configured for LDAP authentication,
      but you are running a server built without OpenLDAP support.

The system is a Rasberry PI 4B with Raspbian 10 (buster).
- ldapsearch out of OpenLDAP is running fine.
- The system is in addition a AD-Member server via Samba.
  Commands like `wbinfo --ping-dc` and `getent passwd [domain]\\[user]` working fine.
- The LDAP Sever runs on another system as a Domain-Controller via Samba with rfc2307 support.
- It does not make a difference if I select
  '2. External LDAP - RFC 2307 POSIX schema' or
  '3. External LDAP - MS Active Directory schema'.


I need to know what exactly is causing the message:
      Your system is configured for LDAP authentication,
      but you are running a server built without OpenLDAP support. ?

What is the citserver looking for?

How to the test LDAP authentication outside of the citserver, that way, that the citserver is happy?


Thanks in advanced.

I need to know what exactly is causing the message:
      Your system is configured for LDAP authentication,
      but you are running a server built without OpenLDAP
support. ?

This means that your Citadel Server was compiled without the OpenLDAP libraries linked in to it. Are you using the Easy Install distribution of Citadel or some other package?

If you are using Easy Install, do this:

Install the OpenLDAP development libraries, using "apt-get install libldap2-dev" or "yum install openldap-devel"
(Which you shouldn't have to do, because Easy Install normally does this for you -- unless you're on some other distribution that doesn't use apt or yum?)

Then do "rm /usr/local/citadel/citadel-easyinstall.sum" and run the Easy Install script again.

If you do "ldd /usr/local/citadel/citserver | grep ldap" it will return at least one result if you've got LDAP support baked in.

Did you ever resolve this, I posted a similar email outlining the same problem but never got a reply, I did find out that a restart of my raspberry pi resolved the issue until you do a "Restart Now" from inside Citadel and then the problem returns until you do a full reboot and then its fixed again, after which it runs without issue until your next the next restart from the admin page, then you have to do another full system reboot to fix it.

Thanks for responding. Mine was noted for having a 7-disc CD changer online. I kept a few Fred Fish discs, and an encyclopedia CD, etc.

I'll have to take a look, but the Citadel 68K (for Amiga) doesn't seem to be supported, but there were utilities like mail.script, msgadd and msgout.

Tony Preston was the one converting for Amigas, but haven't been able to find him online anywhere...

I haven't looked into the sources of his stuff, but will make that attempt in the next couple of days.

Thanx-a-bunch! :-)

Yeah, I'll have to read up on the utilities from then...

MsgAdd and MsgOut were for networking, but I had scripts set up to run via the ctdlcnfg.sys settings

I wouldn't know what to put for the nodename, or domain parameters, nor if you could configure an output file for such.

I'll look around Uncensored a little more and send you a Mail message with possible room(s) to test with?

Are you using our build of Citadel, or the one that is in the raspbian repository?
The one in the repository is probably out of date, and there's probably no one here who supports it, but -- you can try "apt remove citadel-suite" to make it go away.

Then use our build :)

Well ... yes, in theory, but remember, the modern Citadel system no longer supports room sharing in the traditional sense. I'm sure we could budge together some scripts to import/export, but at some point we'd need to translate between data formats. The old BBS software will likely import/export in its native on-disk format, and our Citadel will import/export in RSS format (assuming we use the interfaces that are easiest to connect to, which is RSS).

Just for testing purposes, I copy/pasted the text from our messages here, and pasted into a plain textfile, hoping that MsgAdd would read and add them into my BBS in the same-named room.

It seems to process the file, but "0 total message processed for Uncennsored"...

I'm not sure how the formatting of the file should be, but here's what I tried, from reading NetHack3.doc:

20Feb20<0>23:37<0>Uncensored<0>US 612 470 9635<0>Bob Randale<0>Citadel Support<0>

and the message text below.

Do you remember the requirement(s) for using MsgAdd? Mine was set up for the scripts to do it all...

I've never operated a Citadel-68K or even a Citadel-86 so I don't know how the MSGADD and MSGOUT utilities work. However, my guess is that they work with Citadel-68K's native on-disk message format.

That format starts with 0xFF to signal the start of a new message, followed by a sequence of fields, each comprised of a single character indicating what field it is, then the value, then a 0x00 terminator. The final field in the message is "M" followed by the message text and a final 0x00.

I believe this is the format described in nethack3.doc but I could be mistaken.

Yup. I remember reading that exact section of the docs many years ago. So if you want to import messages using MSGADD, you probably have to write a program to translate messages into that format. My suggestion is that you download messages from a system like Uncensored using RSS rather than trying to scrape the readable messages, because then you can import other RSS feeds as well (plus it's designed for computer-to-computer connections, of course).

To go in the other direction, you'll need to use MSGOUT and translate that format *to* RSS, and have the operator of the other system (such as me) pull that feed from somewhere.

By the way ... the best way for you to see the format first-hand would be for you to enter a few messages into your system, export them with MSGOUT, and then open the resulting file in a hex editor.

Yes, on the Amiga, there are REXX scripts that can be used like that.

Ok, the fix is complete. If you run Easy Install again you will receive version 929 of Citadel Server, which has been repaired and thoroughly tested to resolve the issue with email aliases disappearing when you try to add/change/remove them.....

If Easy Install is ran again on an existing system, will it (attempt to) save the current settings, or do you need to set up again ?
