Managing virtual domains

Configuring interfaces

The following Internet Services are configurable for each interface when virtual domains are enabled:

Clicking on the Mail button allows you to manage mail users associated with the selected interface. Each virtual domain can either use the system-wide set of users, or have a unique set of users associated only with that domain. This means that a single system can have multiple users with the same name that are distinguished by the domain with which they are associated (for example, and are distinct users). Before virtual domains are enabled, mail is received wherever system mail is configured: /usr/spool/mail/name. For each interface, e-mail spool files for POP mail users are in:


Where ipaddress is the interface's IP address and user_name is the e-mail user's name. Alternatively, if the interfaces use /etc/passwd instead of private user lists, mail to and go to the same system mailbox. joe is a real system user, with a full account. When using private user lists for each interface, the users only have POP e-mail access to their mail file. They are not regular users on the system. They cannot use telnet(TC) to connect to their accounts to read mail. POP mail is automatically set up for users in the private user lists.

Clicking on the FTP button allows you to control anonymous FTP associated with the selected interface. Before enabling virtual domains, the anonymous FTP directory is /usr/internet/ip/ If you configure FTP, the anonymous FTP directory for an interface is /usr/internet/ip/ipaddress/sco_ftp (ipaddress is the interface's IP address).

Configuration of network connections affects the system as a whole, so it cannot be performed separately for each interface.

Access to the Internet Manager can only be configured SYSTEM-WIDE.
