DNS blacklist - submit authentication in url

Post by ensarija » 2010-06-17 19:11

Hi,
me again. It seams that spamhaus and spamcop do not need access key to be provided for DNS query. I am registered user of http://www.projecthoneypot.org, and I already use their plugin for my Wordpress based blog. They require access key to be provided for DNS query.

Here is link to API implementation explanation: http://www.projecthoneypot.org/httpbl_api.php

In short it says:
"The format of queries must be precisely setup in order for accurate responses. All queries must include your Access Key followed by the IP Address you are seeking information about (in reverse-octet format) followed by the List-Specific Domain you are querying. Imagine, for example, you are querying for information about the IP address 127.9.1.2 and your Access Key is abcdefghijkl, the format of your query should be constructed as follows"

You could implement option for access key in hMail server for users and servers that require it.

Thanks in advance.

This could be handy. Don't some paid RBL's require it? Think most people just open (free) ones & why it's not been big enough of an issue to get it put into hmail.

Btw I've been reg'd user there for a long time & get the emails about donated MX catching spammers all the time but didn't realize there was DNS query function.. Guess I'll have to look into it to see what it entails.
Thx
Bill

:) if they use [Octet-Reversed IP] [Access Key][List-Specific Domain] instead of [Access Key][Octet-Reversed IP][List-Specific Domain], their stuff would be compatible with any standard RBL tools. Ask your service provider for such feature. It is not "authentication". It is prefix added to domain name.

I thought of that. I could simply add my access key in "DNS host" field and problem solved. But it does not work.

If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ
