rpc.dracd - Dynamic Relay Authorization Control server
rpc.dracd [-i ] [ -e expire ] [ dbfile ]
rpc.dracd is the Dynamic Relay Authorization Control server. It uses
the Berkeley db package to maintain a relay authorization map for
sendmail, by default /etc/drac/dracd.db. POP and IMAP mail servers
make an RPC call to add an entry to the authorization cache after they
have authenticated each user. The daemon, rpc.dracd, adds or updates
entries in the cache, and periodically expires old entries. Only
trusted mail servers are permitted to communicate with rpc.dracd, as
controlled by /etc/drac/dracd.allow. If this file does not exist, all
local IP addresses are permitted.
Allow File Format
The Allow File file consists of entries of the form:
where both netmask and netaddr must be dotted quads.
-i Initialize the database on startup.
-e expire Set the expire time limit. expire is the number of
minutes the entries will remain in the database. It
defaults to 30 minutes.
dbfile Use a different database file name.
/etc/drac/dracd.db default database file
/etc/drac/dracd.allow default allow file.
The following signals have the specified effect when sent to the server
process using the kill(1) command.
SIGTERM closes the database and terminates the server.
