Unix socket question - TLS with Exim/Courier
I'm missing something obvious here.
I have two Debian Stable boxes both running exim4-daemon-heavy
4.50-8sarge2 & courier-imap-ssl 3.0.8-4sarge5
One machine Exim can connect to the Courier authdaemon socket and the
other I get permission denied on the socket. I have not been able to find the
difference between the two setups.
2006-12-05 21:56:19 plain_courier authenticator failed for (me) [192.168.1.2] U=moseley: 435 Unable to authenticate at present (set_id=moseley): failed to connect to socket /var/run/courier/authdaemon/socket: Permission denied
I'm not sure I understand socket permissions as the socket looks like
ls -l /var/run/courier/authdaemon/socket
srwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Dec 5 22:20 /var/run/courier/authdaemon/socket
Exim is running as user Debian-exim on both machines, as normal. The
Courier authdeamon is running as root.
I found one post that said they had to add group "daemon" to
Debian-exim, but I don't understand why that would make a difference
-- I don't see where the socket is group "daemon". Plus, on the
machine where it's working Debian-exim is not part of the daemon
Anyone familiar with domain sockets and/or the Exim+Courier setup to
give me advice how to debug this?
