libpwmd7-dev and application patches

Filed under: libpwmd, patches, projects, pwmd — bjk @ 8:29 pm

I have some updated application patches for the development version of libpwmd and am getting them ready for others to test pwmd 3.0 and libpwmd 7.0 against.

This was inspired by new exim, QTM and fetchmail releases. Maybe I will even update the libpwmd6 patches, too.

Update: I’ve updated some, but not all, of the application patches for the development version of libpwmd7: fetchmail, exim mail server, and qtm. If you use these applications and also use pwmd, please test these patches.


  1. Sorry about the tests. I didn’t think about the blog subscribers. It would be easy to add support for TCP sockets. There used to be support for TLS connections to have the data encrypted but was replaced by libpwmd’s SSH support while still having pwmd listen on a UNIX domain socket. But if you really need it I suppose I could add TLS back in.

  2. Got a lot of tests in my mail from your blog,
    question : would it be fairly straightforward to have pwmd listen on
    a tcp port instead of a unix socket?
