3/23    I am running NAT. My smtp server (on the other side) refuses to allow
        connections from anywhere but my own domain. I am mapping my
        internal IPs to external IPs. Is there something I need to do to
        the sendmail client to prevent "550 5.7.1 Access denied"? The
        server seems to disconnect me because it sees the original
        headers. Do they need to be rewritten?
        \_ What smtp server?
           \_ Dunno. I am not the admin. I assume sendmail, but maybe not.
        \_ your question is not clear.  the smtp server is on the public
           network and you are connecting from behind nat?  if the server
           is checking tcp/ip addressing, it will see the address of
           the NAT device's WAN interface.  otherwise, it will see the
           HELO name provided by your sending agent, which perhaps also
           has to match your domain?  the internall addressing on your
           LAN should have no impact, unless you are trying to configure
           the sending agent's self-identity in a perverse way. what
           happens if you telnet to the server's smtp port?  are you
           dropped immediately or only after issuing a HELO/EHLO command?
           \_ Correct. I am not dropped immediately. I can connect and
              issue a HELO with no problems.
              \_ then what are you asking again?  can you manually
                 send a message via telnet?  can you get a trace of the
                 failing sessions?  what is different between the two?
                 I punted and use "msmtp" to deliver messages via my
                 authenticated SMTP server.

10/15   What's the soda email client these days?
        \_ Don't know.  /usr/bin/mail hasn't been working for a while.
        \_ forward to Gmail.
        \_ mutt works for me

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

2/14    You sure soda isn't running windows in disguise?  It would explain the
        \_ hardly, My winbox stays up longer.
        \_ Nobody cares about uptime anymore brother, that's what web2.0 has
           taught us.  Everything is "stateless".
           \_ You;d think gamers would care more about uptime.

4/6     My company is evaluating version control systems. Our two candidates
        are Perforce and Subversion. Anyone worked with both and have good
        arguments one way or the other? (These are the only two options we
        have.) We're most interested in client performance, ease of use, and
        reasonable branching.
        \_ I'll be 'that guy'. If perforce and subversion are optins, why isn't

9/9     What should outbound mail server be when reading mail from soda
        with IMAP? Is there a FAQ?
        \_ It's <DEAD><DEAD> (same as for incoming mail).
           \_ "The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP
               server <DEAD><DEAD> failed. The server may
               be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections."
