#. Installation

Read installation file INSTALL and follow those instructions.

Copy file fripost.yml.template to ~/.fripost.yml, edit it, chmod 0600 it, and
add the following:

    bind_dn: <admin bind DN>
    bind_pw: <admin bind password>

where <admin bind username> and <admin bind password> your own admin DN
and password.

Configure a local Mail Transger Agent (MTA) for example exim4:

    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config

Choose use smarthost for outgoing and no local e-mail. Choose your IPS's SMTP
server for outgoing e-mail.

#. Log in to server

    $ ssh -vvvNfL <port>:localhost:<port> <remote server>


    $ sudo ssh -vvvNf -l <your usrname at server> -i <ssh-key> \
      -L 389:localhost:389 <remote server>

This opens an ssh-tunnel and returns to standard prompt. Locally, you
may want to use the standard LDAP port 389, or some unprivileged
port. Since 389 is a privileged port, you need sudo rights

It is not possible to use the -N flag in ~/.ssh/config, so you need to
use the command line

#. The script to run to use the functions is fripost:

    $ ./fripost

The script has an integrated manual you can read using e.g.,

A short help is also available with e.g., `fripost--help'.

Have fun!
