 Subject:  smtp-gated and proxy-helper
 Date:  Sun, 12 Dec 2010 23:33:15 +0100
Hi there,

I would like to ask for your precious attention reg. smtp-gated or at least it's proxy-helper on

Software mentioned could be found here:

Idea is to catch all wan outbound connections to port 25 (and maybe other typical smtp ports) and
reroute them to a lan host running smtp-gated (or maybe even the monowall host itself running
This way all outgoing SMTP-connections using no authentication (which are typically spam-bots
contacting open SMTP-relays) could be cut off before even leaving the lan.
Moreover, it would be of great help for identifying infected hosts.

Problem is: I myself do have absolutely no knowledge about development reg. monowall or BSD at all.

Is there anybody willing to provide support getting either the proxy-helper or smtp-gated onto
monowall ?

I am running latest monowall-image on ALIX.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated !

Many TIA,
