#68 closed enhancement (fixed)

Ability to dissable cerain ports or (even better) refine checking method

Reported by: soren.petersen@… Owned by: rainer

This is a suggestion with regard to the port checking addon for samhain.

Although I find it very convenient to be assured that all services are running normally on my production machines, it's somewhat annoying that my logs get filled with reports on samhain trying to connect to a service and violating the protocol by just hanging up.

It would be nice if there was a way to tell samhain not to check certain ports. Even better, if there was a way to tell samhain to honor protocol xxx when checking port yyy (for instance by sending quit before hanging up an SMTP session). It would probably suffice to have this functionality for the most common protocols and perhaps some interface by which new protocols could be added by the user (probably by compiling them into the app).

Just a suggestion...

Resolution: fixed

After some experimenting, it seems that OpenSSH tolerates connection teardown after an identification string has been sent. Also quit on smtp/pop3, logout on imap, and empty command on finger implemented. Comitted in changeset [109].
