Just upgraded to v3.0.1.2, works great btw, and I'm trying to figure out the Monitoring web page. It works fine when I am surfing the page from the actual server (http://localhost:8086), however I cannot seem to hit it from a workstation on the same segment as the server using the IP or DNS name (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8086). The NST server is w2k3 and I have turned the firewall service off (temporarily) and I still cannot hit the monitoring page. Actually, I can't even hit it from the server console using its own ip address, only http://localhost:8086 (127.0.0.1) works. Is there a config somewhere that I missed? Looks like 8086 is only active on 127.0.0.1.

I'm sure its probably user error... So lay it on me... Wink

The problem here is that the default setting of the HTTPPort is to listen on the loopback interface 127.0.0.1 only.

You can change this by editing your noSPAMtoday.cf file with a text editor. Add this line to the HTTPPort section:

IncomingServer=""

and restart the service.

This problem will be fixed in the next version.

Cool.. I did that and the other interfaces are listening on 8086 now, but when I surf there, I get:

403 Forbidden

I thought it would be a rights problem with the C:\Program Files\No Spam Today!\web directory, but then, http://localhost:8086 still works fine. So, I don't think its rights.

Was I supposed to add anything in between the quotes of the IncomingServer= line?

Thanks...

Access from the Internet is forbidden by default, you can access the monitoring pages only from within a private network.

If you want to allow access from hosts over the Internet, you can add a line like this:

Allow="myhost.net"

So if you want to, you can monitor NoSpamToday! while at home.

If your host addresses are in a private network (10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, or 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255), you do not need an Allow line in the config file.

Else, do it as you said, replace "mydomain.com" with the name of the host that you want to allow. Of course, DNS lookups for this hostname must work. When in doubt, use IP addresses instead of host names.

Ok... And if I wanted to specify a range of IPs (not a private network) how would the Allow line look?

Lets say I was using 192.192.1.0 network and I wanted all of 192.192.1.x to have access.

Thanks...

No, sorry, no pattern matching, and no IP ranges.
You did not ask, but dynamic DNS works, in case you wondered.
