These are administrative tools used by Fripost - the Free E-mail Association. Visit our website for more information: https://fripost.org/ Please send patches, bug reports and comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org #. 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> or $ 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., `fripost--man'. A short help is also available with e.g., `fripost--help'.
