Services provided for the DD

Debian DNS and BSMTP are lesser known service for the DD but these are quite useful.

Following is not tested contents. This is under contraction.

When we got Debian account as DD, we knew we obtained followings:

We have few more less known benefits.

Example of DNS and BSMTP setup

Let's login to debian machine. (Here, people.debian.org.)

osamu@gluck:osamu$

Yep I had 2 domains set up. Since my dyndns.org setup seems to be unfunctional, let's update my "osamu.debian.net" to be pointing to people.debian.org.

Let's see who uses this host for BSMTP by "cat /etc/exim/bsmtp" and check their domain set up. (I am not publishing exact content of these and hiding some contents here Try these command yourself.):

osamu@gluck:exim$ cat bsmtp
r****.debian.net: user=d** group=Debian file=/home/d**/bsmtp/r*****.debian.net
s*****.debian.net: user=b** group=Debian file=/home/b**/bsmtp/s*****.debian.net
...
r***.debian.net: user=c******* group=Debian file=/home/c*******/bsmtp/r***.debian.net
...
osamu@gluck:exim$ dig r***.debian.net ANY
...
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;r***.debian.net.               IN      ANY

;; ANSWER SECTION:
r***.debian.net.        3600    IN      MX      0 gluck.debian.org.

...

osamu@gluck:exim$ dig snoopy.debian.net ANY

s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      MX      30 alts*****.m***** o*********.com.au.
s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      MX      0 gluck.debian.org.
s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      TXT     "PGP ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** **"
s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      TXT     "PGP **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** ****"
s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      TXT     "******** <b**@debian.org>"
s*****.debian.net.      3600    IN      A       2**.1**.1**.8*
...

The first one is for one with just fast internet connection without any SMTP mail hosts to get BSMTP service via Debian host. (The second one is for you with fixed IP SMTP mail hosts. Let's leave this for now.)

I will set up "osamu.debian.net" to be BSMTP host.

See following original documents for how exactly to do these.
