Well its still up B)
Still haven't got the SMTP side of the mail server working properly, not able to securely authenticate properly. If anyone has got this working on Ubuntu Server 14.04 please PM me to compare configuration files.

Also did some checks in the workshop, in a more scientific manner on the hardware that was giving me such problems, one of the 1Gb RAM sticks common throughout had a big bad block of bytes! The bad block showed at the end of memtest.

Dan, what server is it? Samba?
If you can help me on knowing what software you use, I can help you on the network part. :P
It's what I am trained for... :P

//Tiny edit:
Maybe this is worth looking at.:

Got two more of those, but these are with a MySQL database server, instead of local account, should save even more time, plus the ability for you to add a registration form. :)

Yeah, been ****ing about with various howtos for ages. The problem is with postfix, dovecot and sasl. Can read email inbox securely etc no problem, but can't get it to send an email. Some problem with the sasl config, Got a horrid cold too, making this problem all the more frustrating. Surely it shouldn't be this much of a PITA to config an email server... I'm part way through an experiment to work it all out. After that, I don't know, maybe purge all the config files and start again.

Would you mind opening up a ssh port?
Could give it a peek and maybe explain more during the fix, or something alike.
Got nothing to do right now anyways.

Yeah, ok I'll set you up an account, this will be a perfect test to see if it works properly (lol when its fixed) sending emails from users outside my LAN.
PM me required username and (relatively strong) password.

Urgh that been annoying me for days. Reading mail is now broken, but I think I know why that's not working now...

....all working! :lol:

Next job .. fixed shared data uploads. For some reason RadLog is able to create the directory structures but not upload the files.
