Hi all. This is more a shell scripting issue i guess but someone here
might be able to help.
I have sendmail 8.8.8 running on any indy with IRIX 5.3
many customers with exchange and lotus use etrn to get their mail from
our server successfully.
PROBLEM: can't configure linux (slackware or redhat 5.1) to run the
following shell script successfully:
# Send ETRN command to sendmail 8.8.x - Andy Rabagliati
telnet mail.my-isp.net smtp <<SMTP_EOF
# End of Shell script
The indy's syslog reports:
Oct 13 16:55:10 6C:zen sendmail: NOQUEUE: Null connection from
But no ETRN.
When I use the script on the IRIX box it works.
On the linux box /bin/sh is a symbolic link to /bin/bash whereas on the
Indy it is the bourne shell itself.
Can anybody help?
