Installing UCSPI-TCP

UCSPI-tcp is a set of command-line tools for building TCP-based client/server applications. They are compliant to UCSPI, the UNIX Client-Server Program Interface. UCSPI tools are available for several different types of networks. For more information, please see

Installing ucspi-tcp is pretty straighforward:

# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/ucspi-tcp
# make install clean

When you run that command, you have 4 options. I would highly suggest installing the man pages. If you would like to use rblsmtp with uscpi, that is completely up to you. By experience alone, I can tell you enabling rbls will dramatically decrease the amount of spams you get. If you have or plan to have a large email server, this will definately help in the long run. The last option SSL is optional so if you plan on adding things like POP or SMTP with SSL, now is the time to do it. You can always install ucspi-ssl later on if you decide not to install it at this time. The last option is, well, optional.

Other than that, UCSPI-tcp is installed. Simple, eh?
