Does anyone know if postfix is compatible with arpwatch? Although arpwatch is doing it's job (by logging events), I'm not getting e-mail notices with these changes. I'm using Debian testing/unstable....

    Arpwatch & Postfix


    Does anyone know if postfix is compatible with arpwatch?

    Although arpwatch is doing it's job (by logging events), I'm not getting e-mail notices with these changes.

    I'm using Debian testing/unstable.

    according to emerge (from within gentoo), arpwatch and postfix can work together...but ssmtp has problems with postfix (not sure if it's relevant to you, but i thought i'd let you know just in case). and, apparently, libpcap is needed by arpwatch


    that's all the info i could get from emerge
    i hope that helps some

    Thanks for the reply.

    What is ssmtp?

    Libpcap should already be installed..

    the description of ssmtp that gentoo has:
    "Extremely simple MTA to get mail off the system to a Mailhub"

    and if libpcap is already installed, than it sounds like you're set
