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, email@example.com
and firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
the interfaces use /etc/passwd instead of private user lists,
mail to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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
If you configure FTP,
the anonymous FTP directory for an interface is
(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.
