Thanks a million! The time now is 04:35 AM. Hi, After a lot of searching in forums and documentation I finally got SASL authentication working with Postfix. Sam has recently taken Valerie out for an expensive dinner, so she knows him as well. http://bovbjerg.net/cannot-connect/ubuntu-postfix-cannot-connect-to-saslauthd-server.php
Cheers, Migm migm, Apr 26, 2008 #1 falko Super Moderator ISPConfig Developer Please run Code: adduser postfix sasl /etc/init.d/postfix restart falko, Apr 26, 2008 #2 migm New Member falko This is the tricky part: rm -r /var/run/saslauthd/ mkdir -p /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd ln -s /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd /var/run chgrp sasl /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd adduser postfix sasl You can run saslauthd in debug mode using: saslauthd -c But then why doesn't it say tls used in the postfix mail.info log? (see swaks log below) I am using a self-signed cert by the way, which I made like so: I tried to check TLS is running two ways, openssl and swaks.
Please don't fill out this field. My postfix was actually not chrooted in the master.cfg migm, Apr 27, 2008 #6 bvidinli New Member i found a basic solution described here: http://www.ehcp.net/?q=node/149#comment-668 bvidinli, Jun 13, 2009 It's important that this be beneath /var/spool/postfix since that's the only directory tree postfix can see while running as it chroot's there. Oh, I'm on ubuntu 8. (As I'm about to post this I'm realizing it grew rather large, so here goes...) Since it's not absolutely clear, I'm assuming that your PC is

Ok, that's the problem. 0: No "authentication Failed" Start saslauthd (sudo /etc/init.d/saslauthd start)Postfix: Create an smtpd.conf file in /etc/postfix/sasl with the contents:Code:pwcheck_method: saslauthdmech_list: login plainThe final line restricts what authentication methods are announced by Postfix to the connecting client.
No, thanks Sasl Authentication Failure: Cannot Connect To Saslauthd Server: Connection Refused If I find the cause I am more than happy to post a response here. I don't know if saslauthd forks while running, so whether or not the two processes with the right path are correct.I do know that on my system, after restarting saslauthd, and Best regards, Matt Top Profile Reply with quote db3l Post subject: Re: Postfix can't find saslauthdPostPosted: Sat Jun 13, 2009 5:43 pm Offline Senior Member Joined: Wed May 13,
SASL is authentication at the application layer that the SMTP server uses to identify the user enqueuing a message, providing one or more ways to exchange the authentication information. Testsaslauthd Connect No Such File Odd, I've never had to do that, even with exact same setups, for some reason it just didn't get started I guess. But I leave my post here for anyone who has this problem in the future. How to reply?
You could also change its ownership but then "postfix check" gives a warning. Now, the question is, SASL works but is TLS really encrypting the traffic when I send my login to postfix? Cannot Connect To Saslauthd Server: Permission Denied Note that if you have the smtpd_tls_security_encrypt option enabled in master.conf (my example left it commented out), then you are telling Postfix to require (as opposed to just offering) TLS on Testsaslauthd Authentication Failed Log in or register to post comments #3 Wed, 12/09/2009 - 16:51 Lanzelotti See this link!!
A further step would be to use a commercial CA (Verisign, Entrust, etc...) or public CA (such as CACert) to sign a certificate for you. my review here Since Postfix is chroot'd, this file is actually /var/spool/postfix/etc/sasldb. Just remember to keep it up to date if you have a dynamic address that changes. In mail log I'm getting: "SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory" Any help would be appreciated - Chris Log in or register to post Warning: Sasl Authentication Failure: Password Verification Failed
Now, the question is, SASL works but is TLS really encrypting the traffic when I send my login to postfix? Perhaps I can shed a little light on some of the questions you encountered along the way.Quote:After reading your post, I did:(...)- in /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf, changed saslauthd_path from /var/run/saslauthd/mux to /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd/mux(...)That setting, Although I'm sure I'd checked this countless times earlier, for whatever reason, I missed the third 'n'. click site I saw somebody ran strace on master a long time ago and found undocumented path for mux..

Sasl Login Authentication Failed: Generic Failure I'm not using any milters so the final option isn't that important for me, but if you wanted filters that could work based on the client connecting, that's useful. Any help is greatly appreciated, as I've been hacking at this for nearly the whole day now.
What's the output of Code: ps aux|grep sasl ? Postfix on my Ubuntu system is built against both Cyrus and Dovecot libraries (you can check with "postconf -a"). Permanent entry in /etc/fstab still won't solve it and you'l end up with a boot hang (press ctrl+d). Test Saslauthd This hovewer leaves saslauthd out of the chroot, so a mount bind will be required.
You'll likely want the tls flag enabled in production. openssl s_client -connect host:port -starttls smtp this showed the certificate ca was not sent maybe a problem. (see log below, which says "No client certificate CA names sent" but does not The AUTH LOGIN method is a plain text format I understand. navigate to this website That /var/run/saslauthd folder doesn't exist anymore.
