NAMEdsbl.conf - configuration file for all DSBL testers
SYNOPSISvi /usr/local/etc/dsbl.conf vi ~/.dsblrc
DESCRIPTIONdsbl.conf and .dsblrc both control the functioning of the DSBL test programs and DSBL server programs. ~/.dsblrc is read if it exists, otherwise dsbl.conf in $PREFIX/etc is read. (PREFIX is set at compile time and is /usr/local by default. These files are in the format: variable_name="value" variable_name2="value2" Test program variables: sender_user If you were sending tests as firstname.lastname@example.org, you would set sender_user to "test". sender_domain If you were sending tests as email@example.com, you would set sender_domain to "example.com". cookie_host Host to retrieve testing cookies from (cookie.dsbl.org for the DSBL). cookie_user Username to provide to the cookie server to retrieve a cookie. To test anonymously, set this to "". cookie_pass Password to provide to the cookie server to retrieve a cookie. To test anonymously, set this to "". target_user If the listing address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you would set target_user to "listme". target_domain If the listing address is email@example.com, you would set target_domain to "dsbl.org". statedir The directory to store the current state (last test date) of IPs. Must be writable by spamtrap(1). checklist The list to check against before testing hosts. If you are an untrusted tester, this should be unconfirmed.dsbl.org, otherwise it should be list.dsbl.org. excluded_ip Each excluded_ip entry is checked against the beginning of an IP before testing. You should list IPs that are local to you and therefor shouldn't be tested. http_port An array of configuration variables to specify which ports HTTP proxies should be tested for on. socks_port An array of configuration variables to specify which ports SOCKS 4 and 5 proxies should be tested for on. message The actual message to send when relay testing. parallel A positive integer representing the number of test processes to run simultaneously. verbosity The amount of information to log to standard output. The options are: 0 No logging 1 Log IP addresses as they are tested 10 Debugging level; log everything Server program variables: mysql_host The hostname to use to connect to the MySQL server. mysql_user The username to use to connect to the MySQL server. mysql_pass The password to use to connect to the MySQL server. mysql_db The name of the DSBL-compliant database on the MySQL server. tempdir The temporary directory in which to store zones while they are being built. This must be on the same filesystem as zonedir. zonedir The directory in which to store the zones once they are built. This must be on the same filesystem as tempdir. unconfirmed_zone The fully qualified domain name of the unconfirmed zone. confirmed_zone The fully qualified domain name of the confirmed (trusted) singlehop zone. multihop_zone The fully qualified domain name of the confirmed (trusted) multihop zone. unconfirmed_nameserver The nameserver of the unconfirmed zone that will be provided in SOA record. confirmed_nameserver The nameserver of the confirmed (trusted) singlehop zone that will be provided in the SOA record. multihop_nameserver The nameserver of the confirmed (trusted) multihop zone that will be provided in the SOA record. zone_contact The contact email address to be provided in the SOA records of both zones. This should have a period (.) instead of an at sign (@). zone_message The TXT message to provide for each IP in the zones. This should end in the dollar sign character ($) which is replaced by the IP in question. listenip The IP address, in dotted quad notation, for the SMTP server to listen on. clientsperip The maximum number of clients per source IP address that will be accepted by the SMTP server. Additional clients from this IP address will be turned away with a temporary error. This is used to prevent attacks from tying up the entire server. idletimeout The time, in seconds, before an idle SMTP session is terminated. This is used to keep server resources available for other connections.
