[REBOL] Authenticating proxy and email robot

From: tiamat::tiamat::2y::net at: 1-Mar-2002 22:02

Hey guys, I have a question, maybe a rtfm related one, but here it comes : I'm building a network monitoring tool for my work, but we use an authenticating proxy for http and ftp. I haven't read anywhere any info about this topic. Does any of you know how to authenticate myself when probing my www and ftp servers ? Thanks in advance for any response, and sorry if it's a "newbye" question ;) Oh, I almost forgot : I've built emails robots that need to be run as root (with Linux), for stuff like adding users, changing passwords. I've setup the suid bit on the rebol program itself (rebolcmd) and on the script itself. When I run them as root, for testing purposes, it works perfectly, but when they're called by the mail program (postfix in my case), nothing happens, even worse, the log file doesn't show any sign of activity. I've setup an alias like this: robot: "|/rebol/robot_computer1" (this is for info, no real name given ;) ) Have anyone any idea about this issue, please ? I'm thinking of making a pure C executable that'll setup the environment to root and launch the script, but I'd rather avoid that option ;) cya folks, and you do a great job with this list, which has proven really useful in my work :) A. -- Arnault Claden email : [tiamat--club-internet--fr] - [tiamat--tiamat--2y--net] ICQ : 11010589 URL 1 : URL 2 :
