6.5. TCP port configuration

6.5.1. Milter port

The port through which the MTA will connect to the filter. This port is defined in two places:

/opt/msh-traffic-policy/etc/config.cf

MILTER_PORT variable is used to define this port. Default 7074:

/etc/postfix/main.cf
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc

With Postfix installation defined port is located in smptd_milters = inet:localhost:[PORT] line. Default 7074.

With Sendmail installation defined port is located in INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`MSH-Traffic-Policy', `S=inet:[PORT]@localhost')dnl line. Default 7074.

After change of these values restart milter daemon and Postfix/Sendmail:

/etc/init.d/msh-tp-milter restart

Postfix:

/etc/init.d/postfix reload

Sendmail:

m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
/etc/init.d/sendmail restart

6.5.2. Settings ports

Settings daemon to communicate with external components like milter is using two separate TCP ports.

File config.cf to configure these ports is located in /opt/msh-traffic-policy/etc directory.

Variable SETTINGS_PORT_IN defines input port. Default 1101.

Variable SETTINGS_PORT_OUT defines output port. Default 1102.

After change of these values restart settings and milter daemon:

/etc/init.d/msh-tp-settings restart
/etc/init.d/msh-tp-milter restart
