Hello all,

haifux.org has now moved to a new server, which is unrelated to 
Hamakor's machine. This affects both the web site and the mailing list.

Thanks to Adir for his help with this transition. As a side note, 
Hamakor's server has also moved (hamakor.org.il in particular), but to 
another (physical) machine.

As always, these transitions tend to come with a few glitches. Please 
inform me personally if you run into something odd.

Hebrew issues will be solved over the next few days. After that, alerts 
are welcome.

There are two issues I could get some help with:

(1) For some reason, the server's firewall doesn't handle --state 
RELATED, ESTABLISHED properly. In fact, this rule doesn't catch any 
input packets at all, even when the server initiates a connection! In 
particular, it doesn't let through answers to its own DNS queries (port 
53) on UDP, which is elementary. The server is an openVZ VPS running 
CentOS 5.6. Ideas?

(2) I've noted that administrative messages from mailman (the mailing 
list manager), e.g. subscription confirmation messages, go to Gmail's 
spam folder. The rDNS for haifux.org is set up properly, and still. From 
what I understand, the mailing list messages themselves go by fine. Any 
comments? Insights? I have reasons to believe this is a widespread 
issue, but how is it solved?

Thanks for your patience.
