mail ok in command line, not in scripts
Posted on 1998-03-27
I set up tcpwrapper on a linux machine.
It works fine (non-authorized hosts are banned), but in the deny file, I put the shell command (echo "sthing" | mail email@example.com). I know that this command line is executed with sh shell, which works fine on the linux machine.
If someone is banned I must receive the mail (It works perfectly on IRIX 6.3, exactly with the same shell command) and I receive nothing.
If I enter echo "sthing" | mail firstname.lastname@example.org under command line mode, I receive the mail.
Any suggestion?? Thanks.
