Changing date with procmail
by Michael A. Peters
Anyone know of a procmail recipe to change the date on incoming
If the date is in the future by more than 24 hours - I'd like to just
change it to the current date.
If the date is in the past by more than two weeks - I'd like to just
change it to the current date.
I'd like to do it in procmail - if someone knows how.
I've done some searching, still have some to do.
Found some stuff on extracting the date, but not on modifying it if

I am planning on running a Virtual Private Network from my Fedora
firewall out to a UML virtual colo (running RH9) at another site.
That site will be the place I present services to the world;
httpd, ssh, sftp, smtp. This is to comply with the "no servers"
and dynamic ip restrictions on my Comcast connection to the net;
if my firewall always drives an outbound connection to the
colocation site, I am not worried about changes of ip address,
and I am not opening any inbound ports.
There are a number of options for the VPN - the most attractive
are cipe ( http://sites.inka.de/sites/bigred/devel/cipe.html )
and FreeSwan ( http://www.freeswan.org/ ), though I am told that
one can do all this through an ssh tunnel. I would rather have
simple and secure than super-duper; I have plenty of bandwidth,
and will send outbound http and smtp from the firewall, so the
main bandwidth user will be incoming spam/b/b/b/b mail.
Anyone have some experiences to share about setting up VPN? Is
there anything about either cipe or FreeSwan that is likely to
break with FC1 or FC2?

Problems with 3COM 3C900Combo
by Christian Moller
Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
RAGE XL Framebuffer
by Yanick Quirion
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
Network problems on new FC4 box - please help.
by William W. Austin
I had to replace a disk (the one with all of the home directories on
it) on an FC3 box, and so I bought a new drive (particulars
To make a long story short, I decided to put FC4 on this box, and so I
installed the new drive and put the root filesystem on it. I still
have the old FC3 root drive and can boot to either for comparison...
Under FC3, I have no network problems that I can detect; however, under
FC4 there are two distinct (related? no idea) problems which have
eluded me. I have tried looking up both of these in the archives, but
have had no luck (some similar issues, but nothing exactly like either
of these unless I missed them).
Problem 1: network card goes to sleep.
This machine has 2 network cards, both on-board. The 1GB card L(Intel
82540EM) goes to the smartswitch to tolk to the local network, and does
not show any problems.
The other card (nVidia nForce2) is a 100MB card and talks to the DSL
modem. Periodically I cannot connect to the internet at all - or even
ping the DSL modem. This happens irregularly but about 5-10 times/day.
If I reboot back to FC3, the problem does not occur. Network
configurations between the two (FC3/FC4) are as identical as I can make
them. The first few times the problem occurs, sometimes retarting
networking works, but eventually a full sys reboot is the only thing
Problem 2: slow local network.
Under FC3 throughput on the LOCAL network (1GB lan) is very fast.
Under FC4, the best I have seen is ONE transfer of about 1.2 MB/s - and
throughput drops to as low as 50-75KB/s at times. Again, this does not
occur under FC3 but does under FC4. Again the same setup as nearly as
I can make it. No workaround found so far.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What does it mean to see an rpm with a kernel of 2.6.10-1.741_FC3, when
we go to a site like http://www.kernel.org and see the latest kernel is
at 2.6.10? If one wanted to compile their own kernel from this site,
would they be losing fixes/etc. from the "-1.741_FC3" portion?
Thanks, still learning here...

I would try the DNAT/SNAT iptables targets, along the lines of:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -d 195.198.111.x \
-j DNAT --to-destination 18.104.22.168
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -d 22.214.171.124 \
-j SNAT --to-source <your external IP address on this machine>
The second line makes the real server send it's replies through the same
path (otherwise it will reply directly to the client)
You have to enable/allow forwarding for everything to work.
