Thu Jan 28 2021 23:57:05 EST from nristen Subject: text client not accepting commands

Hello,

Today I tried to log into the text client on my citadel server and after logging in found that I could not use any of the commands.  The only thing that partially worked was the "?" which responded with "One of ..."  Even the (T)erminate command did not work and I had to kill the citadel process in order to get out of the citadel client

My citadel server is running on a CentOS 7 VPS and is the lastest version (same as used by uncensored) installed using the Easy Install.

My first attempt to connect exited with the error that the file citadel.rc was not found.  After skimming through the Doc and FAQ I found mention of the citadel.rc file but not the content that was needed.  I "assumed" that the file just needed to be present and could contain extra options ie setting the editor to use vim or something else.

On a hunch I wondered if the source code contained a sample citadel.rc so I finally went to the download secion and under souce code, found a link to tar file for just the text client.

After downloading and extracting, sure enough there was a citadel.rc file with "lots" of content.

I copied this over to /usr/local/citadel and suddenly I had working command in the text client.

I am posting this because originally I had typed out a long message describing my system and what I had tried so far before post to the Support room.

After deleting the original post, I decided to actually describe what I did in case someone else might run into the same problem.

 

 



Hello. I ran into your very same problems and also fixed it the way you did. In my case it was a debian. Thank you for sharing.

Hello all again,

could anybody tell me how smart host should be addressed in citadel (please be as precise as possible)?

Thanks in advance

Markus

 



 

From the Administration Menu, open:

Domain names and Internet mail configuration

Then fill the box at Smart hosts with the FQDN or IP address of your smarthost. That easy. The hard part is setting up a smarthost...

Hello again,

In order to test sending emails via citadel my email user agent is connects to citadel via SMTP MSA Serverport 587. Citadel itself is configured to forward each email to a smart host whoes connection parameters are set bellow Administration / Domain names and Internet mail configuration / Smart hosts. But it seems that citadel does not forward incoming emails to that smart host. Assuming connection parameters are correct, what could be the reason?

Markus



On the first place test the hostname you set up at Citadel resolves the correct IP address from the server Citadel runs. Then test, from the same server, the connection to port 25 (in case of this is the port) from the smarthost. You can do:

telnet smarthost 25

You should get some output like this:

Escape character is '^]'.
220 server.domain ESMTP Postfix

If above tests are successful, check the log of the smarthost server in case of having access to it. If not, ask the sys admin from the smarthost server for the activity that comes from your Citadel's server, if there is any.

smart-host: Normally, Citadel sends outbound Internet e-mail directly to its destination. This may not be appropriate for some sites; you may require (due to local convention, security policy, or whatever) that all outbound mail be sent to an SMTP relay or forwarder. To configure this functionality, simply enter the domain name or IP address of your relay as a 'smart-host' entry.

If your relay server is running on a port other than the standard SMTP port 25, you can also specify the port number using "host:port" syntax; i.e. relay99.myisp.com:2525

Furthermore, if your relay server requires authentication, you can specify it using username:password@host or username:password@host:port syntax; for example, jsmith:pass123@relay99.myisp.com:25

A fallback host is a smart-host that is only used if mail cannot be delivered directly to its destination. This is useful if you prefer direct delivery but do not want your server queue filling up with deferred deliveries.

Subject: Re: How to address smart hosts in citadel?

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

Thanks for the responses of you both.

I think I have to explain what I did:

My old citadel system was running for years successfully using a smart host to deliver emails. The smart host was configured according to the following pattern:

   username:password@host:port

On my new citadel system I wanted to use the very same smart host. That's why I had configured the smart host the very same way. But while the old citadel system delivers mails via smart host, the new citadel system does not.

That's my problem. And that's why I was asking for the precise addressing in order to exclude any changes that could have been taking place on the road from the old to the most recent citadel system. And when I understand you right, warbaby, nothing has changed.

What I kno is that I can reach the smart host from both machines, from the older and the newer one. What I haven't done so far is asking the system administration people of the smart host if their log files can tell a story.

digbick, does your citadel system successfully deliver mails via smart host? If so, do you run the most recent webcit/citadel that is availabel via Easy Install?

warbay, when I try to find the reason for my smart host problem can I exclude any envolvement of citadel/webcit?

Thank you both a lot,

Markus

Unfortunately that is not on the short-term roadmap. The existing read-only NNTP support was built as part of a collaboration that ended before posting and feed control were implemented.

The best we can say right now is "someday".

I am presently running citadel on Centos 7,  I am using a CA Provided SSL.   I have been trying configure the server using the most secure methods possible.   

Presently every online TLS/SSL test I run against the server is telling me that SSLv3 is running yet I have not been able to find any way to disable it.    I have found plenty of resources to disable it in Apache, but I am only running Citadel and Apache is not installed.   Any assistance would be appreciated.

The Dev team is aware of this issue. Is it causing other issues for you? 

Previous testing has shown that it only happens when using an external client. Have you been able to recreate the issue just from the Webclient, or does the issue appear in the webclient only after an external client (TB) has touched the mail?

Yes, I was able to recreate the problem just from the web client, gmail and yahoo,

Subject: Error 550 Messages should have one or no To headers, not 2

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

Newbie to Linux here so go easy. Also, since I can only say this once, it's my first public forum post in >20 years.

I have Apache2 and Citadel/Webcit-https installed and working on a virtual host with Ubuntu 20.04.

The email problem is there are always two "To: ..." sections included in the email header, which results in email getting kicked back by some servers with:

  Delivery Status Notification (Failure)

  ... (550 Messages should have one or no To headers, not 2. )

This happens with entirely webcit internal email (i.e., no external email client touching the message). And identically, when replying to a message from an internal user or from an external email address message.

An example Header looks like:


  Return-Path: admin@domain.net

  Date: Sat, 13 Feb 2021 13:19:18 -0700

  To: admin@domain.net

  To: mgolden@domain.net

  Subject: Test admin-->mgolden

  Message-ID: <60283446-00000060@hostname.domain.net>

  From: "admin" <admin@domain.net>

  MIME-Version: 1.0

  X-Mailer: WebCit 927

 

 Content-type: multipart/alternative; boundary="Citadel--Multipart--hostname.domain.net--1721--0002"


The first "To:..." is always the email address of the logged-in citadel user, whether it's a new message or a reply. The second "To:..." is always the intended recipient of the email..

Am really hoping to make Citadel work for us but this creates a no-go situation b/c I seemingly can't fix it or find a workaround.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

-Mike
