I was just testing the Postfix server on one of my mailers, for the hell of it.. EHLO, STARTTLS, all good. Then comes the mail submission part.

MAIL FROM test@nixmagic.com
Connection closed by foreign host.

Right after I say mail from, it just closes the connection! Is it just me or does this feel like the server says to me "fuck off"? :')

    I just sent you an email, did it arrive? 😐

    @linuxxx your email id? I wanted to send you the signal number.

    You were being rude. You forgot to say HELLO

    @linuxxx haven't checked yet, had a sudden call from my grandmother (that took nearly an hour o.O). Just gonna put the laundry in real quick and then I'll take a look :)

    @drekhi12 Oh, I thought that was well known by now 😅

    @linuxxx And for unlisting I wasn't sure if I can just put a bogus number there.. now they have my phone number :')
    Note to self: their unlisting process is automated, and automatically puts the IP in normal mode for a few hours to gauge if spam is being sent. So I could've probably faked it.

    By the way, a script for VPN server installation, seriously? 😜
    Check this out: https://digitalocean.com/community/... :)

    @Condor Yeah seriously. I've used this script (the original) for ages and by just modifying it a little bit, I can run it without any interaction required but it crashes so yah

    @linuxxx don't worry, was just fooling around a bit :3 so long as you know how to deploy it manually if needed, I second that scripts can make life a lot easier :)

    @linuxxx It seems to be a very interactive script though, since it relies quite heavily on interactive input (through read -p). Why not rewrite it to accept arguments or stdin instead? Currently 19% through reading the code, and there don't seem to be any obvious errors by the way :/

    Edit: after a diff I noticed that you are indeed using command-line arguments in your version. That does make the interactive version a little bit redundant though.

    @Condor I removed all reads from installation part O_o
  • 5
    @linuxxx Lines 76-199 consist largely of interactive reads though?

    @linuxxx Well, as far as I can tell nothing seems to be wrong with it. Perhaps it's a local issue in your server?

    @Condor Those lines are for new client certs and renovation ;)

    And tried it on multiple servers, same result on every one.

    Thanks for taking your time anyways! 😊

    @linuxxx hmm, in that case trying the script wouldn't be a bad idea I guess. Which distro are you testing on?

    @Condor Debian 7 minimal! (x64)
