  • The Mailman E-mail Interface: a Guide for Majordomo Users
    is on a list via e mail General introduction to interacting with mailman via e mail There are two important changes here First you need to know what address to use in order to reach the mailing list software In the majordomo world requests were sent to majordomo example com In the mailman world requests go to an address specific to the list in question Normally this address will be listname request example com If you forget the address to use look at the full headers of any message sent to the list Mailman messages contain a block of headers with names starting with List which give meta information For instance List Id listname example com List Unsubscribe https www example com mailman listinfo listname mailto listname request example com subject unsubscribe List Archive http www example com pipermail listname List Post mailto listname example com List Help mailto listname request example com subject help List Subscribe https www example com mailman listinfo listname mailto listname request example com subject subscribe In particular the List Help entry tells you the general address for list requests and its name is listname request example com as above The second big change in sending e mail to mailman is where to place the command Unlike majordomo which ignores the subject line entirely mailman uses the subject line to figure out what command you want to run So you would send a message with Subject command to run command or possibly Subject command argument if the command takes an argument One good command to try is help which requires no arguments and which gives you the list of commands you can send to mailman via e mail including all the ones i describe on this page Note about mailman and passwords Unlike majordomo mailman has a password associated with each subscriber to a list This password is mostly a mild anti abuse mechanism it is not sent or stored securely so do not use an important password here However this means that if you want information from a mailing list you re on you need to know your password This is true for both the e mail interface and the web interface If you forget it go to the web interface and have it mailed to you Note that the initial message mailman sends you when you successfully subscribe to a list contains your password so if you keep that message around you will be able to look up the password whenever you want Once you have the password how to use it depends on the command However the most common case is that the command will take the password as an argument on the subject line Subject command password or if there are other arguments Subject command password argument How to subscribe to a list via e mail In order to subscribe to a list send mail to the general help address using the subscribe command To listname request example com Subject subscribe

  • How to Configure Public-Key SSH Login to SWARPAnet
    work or somewhere else that s okay it s still preferable to always logging in using your password Creating a public private keypair Note these instructions are for generating keys from a command line on a Unix machine including Mac OS X If you regularly login from a machine running Windows MacOS 9 or earlier or some other non Unix OS let us know and we ll try to find directions for how to configure your SSH client to use public key authentication Use the ssh keygen utility to create a keypair The syntax is ssh keygen t rsa You will be prompted for a filename in which to store the key Unless you are going to have multiple keys the default is probably fine At any rate it is preferable to keep your key in the directory ssh so that you can find it again You will then be prompted for a passphrase This should be a strong password at least eight characters which are seemingly random and which include letters numbers and punctuation or a much longer at least 20 characters or so English like phrase which is hard to guess and which contains at least some numbers and punctuation It should not be the same as your login password for SWARPAnet The passphrase is used for encrypting your private key on disk This is important because if you do not encrypt your key then anyone who breaks into your computer can also break into your SWARPAnet account If SWARPAnet is cracked because of your unencrypted key restoring the system will waste a lot of time which we could be using to do other neat things for SWARPAnet or to relax and enjoy ourselves and we will be upset with you Do not enter a blank passphrase Once you are done you should have two new files The one whose name ends in pub is your public key and the other is your private key For the rest of this document we will assume that they are named Users username ssh id rsa Users username ssh id rsa pub which is the default for an OS X machine Configuring login swarpa net to allow you to authenticate with your key In this step you will tell login swarpa net that it can use your public key to try to authenticate people who want to login to your account If you are creating an SSH keypair for a new SWARPAnet account you may not have access to your account yet In that case we will do this step Send your public key only the id rsa pub file to us as an e mail attachment and we will configure your key file If you already have an account and are switching over to using public key authentication you can do the server configuration yourself Copy your public key over to login swarpa net scp ssh id rsa pub swarpauser login swarpa net where swarpauser is your username on SWARPAnet
