Details of What's New in Visual Studio version 16.5

Visual Studio IDE

You can now filter accounts to the specific subset of the Azure Active Directories you want to make available to Visual Studio

Debugging

  • You can now decompile managed code even if you don't have the symbols, allowing you to look at code, inspect variables and set breakpoints.

  • You can now attach to processes running in Docker Windows containers via the Attach to Process dialog window.

Attach to process in Docker Windows containerEnclave debugging
  • There have been several improvements to the Allocation view in the .NET Object Allocation Tracking tool. First, the backtrace view has been moved to a separate panel to more easily distinguish between allocation type and functions called. Second, the call trees in the backtrace view have been flipped to more easily diagnose what functions are allocating the most memory. Finally, icons indicating value and reference types have been added and two more icons for value and reference collections are coming soon!
Allocation View

C++

  • C++ developers can now train IntelliCode models on their own codebases. We call this a Team Completions model because you benefit from your team's practices. Additionally, we've improved IntelliCode suggestions for member variables.

  • IntelliSense now displays more readable type names when dealing with the Standard Library.

  • We've added the ability to toggle whether Enter, Space, and Tab function as commit characters, and to toggle whether Tab is used to Insert Snippet. Find these settings under Tools > Options > Text Editor > C/C++ > Advanced > IntelliSense. Disabling autocomplete options

  • You can now leverage Visual Studio's native support for WSL when separating your build system from your remote deploy system. This allows you to build natively on WSL and deploy the build artifacts to a second remote system for debugging. This workflow is supported by both CMake projects and MSBuild-based Linux projects.

  • You are now able to interact with your stored remote connections over the command line. This is useful for tasks such as provisioning a new development machine or setting up Visual Studio in continuous integration. C++ Connection Manager

  • Visual Studio now supports FIPS 140-2 compliance mode when developing C++ applications that target a remote Linux system.

  • The source file copy for CMake projects targeting a remote Linux system has been optimized. Visual Studio now keeps a "fingerprint file" of the last set of sources copied remotely and optimizes behavior based on the number of files that have changed.

  • Code navigation features such as Go To Definition and Find All References are now supported for functions, variables, and targets in CMake script files. Language services for CMake scripts

  • Add, remove, and rename source files and targets in your CMake projects from the IDE without manually editing your CMake scripts. When you add or remove files with the Solution Explorer, Visual Studio will automatically edit your CMake project. You can also add, remove, and rename the project's targets from the Solution Explorer's Targets View. 'Add' menu in CMake Targets View

F# language and tools

The primary focus of this release has been improving the performance and scalability of large F# codebases in Visual Studio. This work was influenced by working directly with customers who have very large codebases. The performance work is still ongoing, but if you have a medium-to-large sized codebase, you should see reduced memory usage.

Beyond performance enhancements, this release includes a variety of other fixes, many of which were contributed by our wonderful F# OSS community.

F# language

Several F# preview language features have been merged. You can try them out by setting your to in your project file.

F# compiler

F# core library

F# tools for Visual Studio

F# open source development experience

  • The FSharp.Compiler.Service build in the F# repository has been moved to use the .NET SDK, contributed by Chet Husk

.NET Productivity

You can now turn a fragment of code from an existing method into a local function. Highlight the code you want extracted. Press (Ctrl+.) to trigger the Quick Actions and Refactorings menu. Select Extract local function.

Extract local function

You can now make members static. Place your cursor on the member name. Press (Ctrl+.) to trigger the Quick Actions and Refactorings menu. Select Make static.

You now have the option to exclude generated files or folders when running analyzers. Create an EditorConfig file and mark the required files or folders as generated with the following syntax:

EditorConfig option to exclude generated files or folders

Analyzer authors can now distribute custom code refactorings as a NuGet package when previously it could only be distributed as a VSIX.

Testing

You can now profile a .NET Core test. Note that the prerequisites for profiling are that your .NET Core projects are configured to generate Full PDB’s. It is also recommended that you upgrade to minimum version of 16.4 for the Microsoft.Test.SDK. This will allow you to profile tests in both x86 and x64 architecture settings. To profile a test, select “Profile” from the context menu in the Test Explorer. Test profiling is supported through static instrumentation and Performance Explorer (.vsp) document in Visual Studio.

The default setting for processor architecture for tests now has a third option ‘Auto’ in addition to the x64 and x86 options. ‘Auto’ supports different default architectures for tests targeting .NET Framework vs. .NET Core tests. .NET Framework tests default to x86 test execution and .NET Core tests default to x64. ‘Auto’ allows the architecture choice to be left unset by the user and supports different defaults for these frameworks. Previously x86 was the default in all cases, however .NET Core tests were introduced defaulting to x64 and thus the need for the default setting to diverge.

This release contains significant perf improvements in test discovery and execution, especially in large solutions with lots of tests. We encourage you to run your own benchmarks to evaluate how valuable this is. With the Roslyn code base (the C# and Visual Basic compiler), the test explorer reduced memory consumption from 50 to 60% and cut load time by up to 60%.

Better diagnostics are now available for Live Unit Testing. When a Live Unit Testing build fails additional diagnostic info will print to the output including MSBuild logs. It will also report cases where the output path is hardcoded.

JavaScript/TypeScript

VS Search now supports the ability to search for types and members in TypeScript and JavaScript files. There is also support for searching JavaScript blocks in open markup files (i.e. HTML, CSHTML)

Visual Studio now supports ESLint for Typescript files: there is a global configuration with a set of recommended rules or ESLint can be set up locally to a project with full customization. More information and instructions available on our GitHub page

Xamarin

  • With XAML Hot Reload, you can now see your changes updated on multiple Xamarin.Forms targets at once. Debug your app with multiple startup projects, change your XAML, and hit Save to show the changes on Android and iOS simultaneously.

  • You can now see a hierarchy of your Xamarin.Forms controls in the Document Outline pane. On Windows, it can be opened with Ctrl+Alt+T (View > Other Windows > Document Outline). On Mac, you can open it via Views > Pads > Document Outline.

  • You can now apply Android resource changes at runtime using Android Apply Changes. This feature allows you to quickly see changes made to your Android resource files (XML layouts, drawables, etc) on an Android device or emulator without requiring the application to be restarted.

Android Apply Changes
  • You can now generate your own custom profiles when using startup tracing in your Android application. This provides you an even more performant startup experience with a minimal increase to APK size.
  • You can now generate Xamarin.Android bindings against Kotlin libraries.
  • You can now use the Google Manifest Merger when merging AndroidManifest.xml files in your Android projects. This allows you to customize how each manifest and its contents will be merged. For more details on rules that can be applied, please see Merge multiple manifest files.
  • You can now opt-into a new option which will automatically reload all opened designer surfaces when any modification is done to your codebase.
Custom Control Quick Changes for Android Layouts
  • Take advantage of consolidated editor functionality to offer more responsive and precise IntelliSense. This includes many changes such as improved completion for common XML constructions such as attribute quotes and updating end tag names automatically. You can control these behaviors via Android XML editor preferences:
Android XML IntelliSense Options

UWP/WPF Tooling

  • Dragging an image from your project solution explorer into the XAML editor will now generate a XAML image tag with the Source property set to the correct image path.

  • Changing “Artboard Background” color for the XAML Designer now works with WPF .NET Core projects (Options > Environment > Fonts and Colors, then change to XAML Designer settings and update Artboard Background)

  • XAML Designer now supports loading .NET Core 3.x Projects that include PublishSingleFile, RuntimeIdenfier and PublishTrimmed settings in their project file (csproj). Note that including these settings slows down designer performance.

New Resources

chef_client_launchd

The resource allows you to configure Chef Infra Client to run as a global launchd daemon on macOS hosts. This resource mirrors the configuration of other resources and allows for simple out-of-the-box configuration of the daemon, while also providing advanced tunables. If you've used the cookbook in the past, you'll notice a number of improvements in the new resource including configuration update handling, splay times support, nice level support, and an out-of-the-box configuration of low IO priority execution. In order to handle restarting the Chef Infra Client launchd daemon when configuration changes occur, the resource also installs a new daemon. This daemon watches for daemon configuration changes and gracefully handles the restart to ensure the client process continues to run.

chef_client_trusted_certificate

The resource allows you to add a certificate to Chef Infra Client's trusted certificate directory. The resource handles platform-specific locations and creates the trusted certificates directory if it doesn't already exist. Once a certificate is added, it will be used by the client itself to communicate with the Chef Infra Server and by resources such as .

Resource Updates

chef_client_cron

The resource has been updated with a new property that allows you to set the nice level for the process. Nice level changes only apply to the process and not any subprocesses like or system utility calls. If you need to ensure that the process does not negatively impact system performance, we highly recommend instead using the property in the resource which applies to all child processes.

chef_client_systemd_timer

The resource has been updated with a new property that allows you to control the systemd value for the process. This allows you to ensure execution doesn't adversely impact performance on your systems.

launchd

The resource has been updated to better validate inputs to the property so we can make sure these are acceptable nice values.

mount

The resource on Linux has new improved idempotency in some scenarios by switching to to determine the current state of the system. Thanks for reporting this issue @pollosp!

osx_profile

The resource will now allow you to remove profiles from macOS 11 (Big Sur) systems. Due to security changes in macOS 11, it is no longer possible to locally install profiles, but this will allow you to cleanup existing profiles left over after an upgrade from an earlier macOS release. The resource has been updated to resolve a regression introduced in Chef Infra Client 16.4 that caused the resource to attempt to update profiles on each converge. Thanks for reporting these issues @chilcote!

rhsm_register

The resource has been updated to reduce the load on the RedHat Satellite server when checking if a system is already registered. Thanks for reporting this issue @donwlewis! A new property has also been added to allow you to register a name other than the system's hostname. Thanks for this improvement @jasonwbarnett!

windows_ad_join

The resource has been updated with a new property which allows you to control the delay time before restarting systems.

windows_firewall_profile

The resource was updated to prevent NilClass errors from loading the firewall state.

windows_user_privilege

The resource has been updated to better validate the property and to allow the property to accept String values. Thanks for reporting this issue @jeremyciak!

Windows securable resources

All Windows securable resources now support using SID in addition to user or group name when specifying , , or principal. These resources include the , , , , , and resources. When using a SID, you may use either the standard string representation of a SID (S-R-I-S-S) or one of the SDDL string constants.

Ohai Improvements

  • Ohai now uses the same underlying code for shelling out to external commands as Chef Infra Client. This may resolve issues from determining the state on some non-English systems.
  • The plugin has been updated to gather package installation information on macOS hosts.

Platform Packages

  • We are once again building Chef Infra Client packages for RHEL 7 / SLES 12 on the S390x architecture. In addition to these packages, we've also added S390x packages for RHEL 8 / SLES 15.
  • We now produce packages for Apple's upcoming macOS 11 Big Sur release.

Security

OpenSSL has been updated to 1.0.2w which includes a fix for CVE-2020-1968.

As always, you can download binaries directly from downloads.chef.io or by using the command-line utility:

Alternatively, you can install Chef Infra Client using one of the following command options:

If you want to give this version a spin in Test Kitchen, create or add the following to your file:

Last Revised 7 May 2018

 



This manual is for LISTSERV Lite running under Microsoft Windows.

This manual makes the following assumptions:

1.   You have a supported Microsoft Windows operating system installed and operating normally on a computer in your network that meets the various technical requirements listed later in this guide;

2.   You have physical access to the machine in question and are logged in as Administrator, or at least as a member of the Administrators group with full control of the machine;

3.   You can troubleshoot your supported version of Microsoft Windows (i.e. native OS problems, not problems related to LISTSERV) without assistance from this guide or from L-Soft.

Number three is particularly important.  If you have purchased support from L-Soft for LISTSERV Lite, L-Soft will be happy to assist you with LISTSERV-related problems arising under a supported version of Microsoft Windows but is unable to assist you in setting up your operating system, the Internet Information Service (or any other web server software available for the supported Microsoft Windows operating systems), or any aspect of your operating system that is not directly related to LISTSERV's operation.  If you are not familiar with Microsoft Windows operating systems, please be aware that L-Soft cannot help you with either their installation or subsequent troubleshooting.

This manual makes the following assumptions:

"Windows" or "the Windows operating system" means the Microsoft Windows Server and Workstation operating system versions currently supported by L-Soft.  In other words, if we say "Windows", we mean "all of the Microsoft Windows operating systems under which LISTSERV is currently supported".

"Windows Server" means specifically the Microsoft Windows Server operating systems which are currently supported by L-Soft.

"Windows Workstation" means specifically  the Microsoft Windows workstation operating systems which are currently supported by L-Soft.

If we indicate a specific Microsoft Windows operating system by name, for example, "Windows 10", we mean specifically that version of the operating system and no other.

At the release date of LISTSERV 16.5, the following Microsoft Windows operating systems were supported by L-Soft for use with LISTSERV:

 

 

 

 

L-Soft LISTSERV 16.5 Supported Microsoft Windows Operating Systems

LISTSERV for Microsoft Windows

Windows 7 (64-bit only)

 

Windows 8.x (64-bit only)

 

Windows 10 (64-bit only)

 

Windows Server 2008 R2

 

Windows Server 2012

 

Windows Server 2012 R2

 

Windows Server 2016

 

Support for 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems was withdrawn by L-Soft as of version 16.0-2017a.


You will need to gather some information before you start installation:

·         What is the DNS hostname for the machine on which LISTSERV is going to be installed?  This is something like LISTSERV.YOURDOMAIN.COM .  It must be a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) and it must map to an A or MX record as noted above in the networking requirements.  While it is possible to use a bracketed IP (eg, [10.0.0.24]) for testing purposes, as noted above the use of bracketed IPs in production is not supported and not recommended.

·         What SMTP server do you intend to use for LISTSERV's outgoing mail?  Like the hostname for the LISTSERV machine, this must be an FQDN hostname listed in DNS.  If you will be installing L-Soft's legacy LSMTP MTA on the same machine as LISTSERV then the answer to this question is identical to the answer for #1.  Otherwise this must be the name of an external machine, ie, one running sendmail or some other SMTP implementation that can accept LISTSERV's outgoing mail for delivery.  (If you will be installing LSMTP you will probably still want to identify an external SMTP machine to use temporarily to test LISTSERV prior to installing LSMTP, which is the recommended procedure.)

·         What are the email addresses for the LISTSERV maintainers (the person or persons who are authorized to create lists and operate/maintain the server)?

·         What drive and directory are you going to install LISTSERV into?  (The installation script defaults to C:\LISTSERV; if you have more space on another drive, eg, a RAID array or other large disk, you will want to install LISTSERV on that drive rather than on C:.)

·         What program group or folder do you want LISTSERV's icons to be placed in?

1.1 Technical Requirements

There are three classes of technical requirements for running LISTSERV under Windows --hardware, software, and networking.  Please read each section carefully.

1.1.1  Hardware Requirements

1.   CPU Architecture: LISTSERV runs under 64-bit Windows on 64-bit Intel architectures only.

2.   Multiple Processors: While LISTSERV itself will not use multiple processors (LISTSERV is a single-threaded application), overall machine performance may be enhanced by use of multiple processors if other applications running simultaneously on the machine can take advantage of them.

3.   Memory: L-Soft recommends that a dedicated Windows LISTSERV machine start out with a minimum of 4GB, as this will minimize paging and can lead to a marked improvement in performance, particularly if the web archive/administration interface (see below) is implemented.  In particular, LISTSERV servers running with the High Performance Option (HPO) require more memory than non-HPO servers and should therefore start out with at least 8GB.

4.   Disk Space Needed: LISTSERV itself takes up very little space (perhaps 4MB total for all of its default system files). When planning a LISTSERV system you need to take into account how large your lists will be (100 bytes per subscriber entry in a given list) and how much space you will need for discussion list archives, which have the potential to grow quite large depending on your traffic and number of lists.  For most small systems, a 4GB or larger drive is probably sufficient for some time.  Larger systems will naturally require larger disks.

5.   Disk Architecture: LISTSERV will run perfectly well for most sites on inexpensive SATA disks of the modern sort. If performance is an issue, it will be greatly enhanced by the use of fast SAS disks in a RAID array with write-back caching and a write-back battery back-up. Write-through caching is not recommended.  Usually it is best to divide a RAID array into at least two partitions: A boot partition of 3GB (effective 1.5GB) RAID 0+1, and a data partition making up the rest of the available disk space at RAID 5.  If it is not feasible to divide the array in this manner, RAID 0+1 for the entire array is suggested.  (The boot partition can be larger if desired -- particularly as very large disks are much more economical than in the past -- but we would still recommend that it be configured RAID 0+1).

      With prices continuing to drop for modern data storage, the above should be considered absolute minimums and we would actually recommend starting with larger disks and partitions wherever possible.

      To date we have not done any testing with solid-state drives.  However we consider it prudent to caution against using SSD for highly-dynamic data such as LISTSERV's spool and archives.  SSD might profitably be used for boot partitions, however, where data (at least in comparison to LISTSERV's data) rarely or only occasionally changes.

6.   Disk Format and Security: L-Soft strongly recommends that LISTSERV be installed on an NTFS-formatted partition. LISTSERV will run out of a FAT partition, but FAT does not provide the same level of security and performance available with NTFS.

7.   LISTSERV in a virtualized environment: LISTSERV works very well in a Microsoft Hyper-V environment.  We recommend using a dedicated Hyper-V instance for this purpose, with service parameters adjusted to fit your local needs.  The same minimums noted above for physical servers apply to Hyper-V instances.  If you are looking for a high-availability solution for LISTSERV for Windows, Hyper-V with its failover clustering feature may be what you are looking for.

General performance notes:

·         L-Soft STRONGLY DISCOURAGES running LISTSERV out of a RAM disk in order to speed up I/O.  This is not a supported configuration and if you have problems with it the support group's response will be to tell you to stop using the RAM disk.

·         If system RAM is tight, either a fast disk or more RAM is a necessity if you are to minimize I/O time lost to paging.  An otherwise fast system can become quite sluggish if it is required constantly to read and write to virtual memory. Adding more RAM is usually preferred as it is more efficient to access RAM than it is to access even a fast disk.

1.1.2 Software Requirements

1.   LISTSERV requires one of the Microsoft Windows operating systems listed in the matrix found in the Preface to this manual.

2.   Either Internet Information Service (IIS) or some other WWW server (ie, Apache) should be installed on the machine if you intend to use the web archive and administration interface.  LISTSERV's web interface cannot be installed on a separate machine.  If you are using an older version of IIS which includes the IIS SMTP service, IIS SMTP should be disabled or not installed unless you intend to use it for inbound and outbound mail (in which case, please contact L-Soft support to receive a white paper describing how to do this).

3.   INBOUND MAIL: The SMTP "listener" service (SMTPL.EXE) provided in the LISTSERV installation kit must be installed.  Third-party SMTP MTAs (Mail Transfer Agents) are supported for inbound LISTSERV mail if they can be configured to redirect LISTSERV's mail to SMTPL running on a non-standard port (for instance, 40025).

Note:  While sites with valid licenses for L-Soft's legacy LSMTP mailer may of course continue to use LSMTP for both inbound and outbound mail, L-Soft strongly discourages the use of this discontinued, no longer supported product.  We will be happy to discuss alternatives with you; please simply write to [email protected] and request details.

4.   OUTBOUND MAIL:  The SMTPL.EXE "listener" service cannot be used for outbound mail.  You will need to have access to an SMTP MTA that can handle LISTSERV's outbound mail. This machine can be a unix machine running one of the standard unix MTAs (sendmail/qmail/postfix), a Windows machine running Microsoft Exchange, or any fully-standards-compliant SMTP server running on any platform, as long as it can handle the amount of traffic you will generate with LISTSERV.

      Low-end SMTP servers can handle modest delivery loads (perhaps 10K-25K messages per hour, although we have seen a well-tuned IIS SMTP instance handle up to 75K per hour). For heavier delivery loads, L-Soft recommends a high-performance SMTP server that can handle loads of more than 1 million messages per hour.

      If the outbound MTA is running on an external machine, that machine must be configured to accept for delivery so-called "relay mail" from the machine running LISTSERV (it may of course otherwise be configured to reject "relay mail" coming from other hosts).

      If you need a "turnkey" single-machine solution for LISTSERV, please contact the support department for assistance.

Please note the following for both inbound and outbound mail:

● LISTSERV does not have the capability of accessing a remote mailbox for its inbound mail.  LISTSERV does not understand POP or IMAP or any other mail retrieval protocol.  All mail coming in to LISTSERV must arrive via SMTP.

● LISTSERV cannot connect directly to an SMTP server that requires SMTP AUTH on the outbound side.  If you cannot arrange an exception for the LISTSERV server such that it is not required to authenticate to the outbound SMTP server, you will have to use an intermediary method to offload the outbound mail.  Typically, the IIS SMTP server mentioned above can be used to solve this problem.

1.1.3 Networking requirements

1.   TCP/IP connectivity, preferably 24/7, with enough bandwidth to handle your workload.  Please note carefully that LISTSERV is not designed to dial up and access POP mailboxes. The proper installation and operation of LISTSERV is contingent on direct connection to the Internet in order for it to receive and send SMTP mail.  If you do not understand this, L-Soft strongly recommends that you get expert technical advice before proceeding further, or consider using a hosting service instead of running LISTSERV yourself
(see http://www.lsoft.com/products/ease.asp for an overview of hosting services offered by
L-Soft).

2.   In conjunction with networking requirement #1, and as a fundamental requirement of the SMTP mail protocol, LISTSERV requires a static IP address which is mapped via a DNS A or MX record to a particular host name (typically LISTSERV.yourdomain, for example, LISTSERV.EXAMPLE.COM). If you are planning to use the web archive/administration interface with LISTSERV, an A record is required at minimum (web browsers cannot connect to hosts that have only an MX record).  Please note carefully that L-Soft does not support LISTSERV servers running without DNS entries (ie we do not support servers configured with bracketed IP addresses instead of FQDNs [fully-qualified domain names, for example, LISTSERV.EXAMPLE.COM]).

 

      The use of a CNAME is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED because typically such hostnames are rewritten ("canonicalized") when mail sent from them traverses the Internet.  This will cause mail to appear to be coming from a "different" host than your subscribers may be expecting, even though in fact the A and CNAME records point to the same physical machine.

      Microsoft's WINS and MAPI protocols are not supported or used by LISTSERV.

      There are no guarantees that LISTSERV will work with a dynamically-assigned IP address (for instance, one obtained through DHCP), and a DNS entry is required if you expect people to be able to send mail to, and also--in many cases where the user's ISP does a reverse DNS lookup to validate that the mail is not spam--to receive mail from the server.

      Again, if you do not understand any part of this requirement, L-Soft strongly recommends that you get expert technical advice before proceeding further.

3.   If installing LISTSERV behind a firewall with the expectation that users from the outside world will be able to access it, it is imperative that you provide access to the following TCP ports on the LISTSERV machine:  Port 25 (SMTP) and port 80 (webserver, if the web archive/administration feature is enabled).  It may also be necessary to provide access to port 53 (nameserver) if LISTSERV is unable to resolve the name of its outgoing mail host. Opening other ports may be necessary for other features to work properly (e.g., port 443 if your web server supports SSL/https).

      Installing LISTSERV behind a firewall is almost more of an art than a science (and every firewall seems to be different) but the bottom line is that the above ports must be open if you expect LISTSERV to work.  It is not recommended to route incoming LISTSERV mail through another machine (ie the firewall) as this normally leads to complications.

1.1.4 Older Versions of Windows Server No Longer Supported

L-Soft no longer supports Microsoft Windows Server earlier than Server 2008 R2. Only 64-bit Windows operating systems are supported.

1.1.5 Older Versions of Windows Workstation No Longer Supported

L-Soft supports only the 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 7, 8.x, and 10.  Use of the Professional or Ultimate Editions is strongly recommended; use of the Home Edition is not recommended.


L-Soft provides its software via FTP download only. The installation kits for LISTSERV Lite for Windows are found at

http://www.lsoft.com/download/listservlite.asp

These kits are complete implementations of LISTSERV Lite Free Edition for Windows.  If you have already purchased a paid copy of LISTSERV Lite you will have received a production LAK separately--we will describe the installation of that key later in this document.

2.1  Starting the installation

First, place the distribution kit into a temporary directory (e.g., C:\TEMP or C:\SCRATCH).  DO NOT try to run the kit from the directory into which you are going to actually install LISTSERV.

Next, make sure that you are logged in either as the Administrator user or as a member of the Administrators group.  You cannot install LISTSERV unless you have administrative control of the computer.

The kit is a self-contained, self-extracting setup kit that includes all of the files you will need for the installation.  Simply run LISTSERV-LITE.EXE from a DOS prompt or double-click on it in Windows Explorer to start the installation and follow the script.

2.2 Basic configuration

The installation script will ask whether or not you want to go ahead and configure the LISTSERV server.  You MUST do a basic server configuration at install time or the installer will exit, but bear in mind that a more complex configuration can be done after finishing the installation, if necessary.  For the basic configuration done at install time, you will need to have the information discussed below for NODE, SMTP_FORWARD, and POSTMASTER.  (Note:  This basic configuration step is skipped for upgrades, which are assumed to be already configured.)

Configuring the server after installation is done via the web administration interface.  Log in as a LISTSERV administrator, and choose Server Administration/Site Configuration/Site Configuration to enter the web-based configurator.

It should be noted that the MAIN\SITE.CFG file is now used only for initial startup and for certain settings which need to be read in immediately when LISTSERV starts; changes made via the web configurator are written to a platform-independent file which is maintained by LISTSERV and which should not be hand-edited.

In addition, the old SITE.EXE configuration GUI is no longer supported or provided (because it operates on the MAIN\SITE.CFG file).  If you have a copy from a previous installation, it should not be used, and L-Soft recommends that it simply be deleted along with SITE.HLP and SITEDATA.FILE.


 

2.2.1 NODE

The NODE setting is the fully-qualified domain name as registered in DNS for the machine LISTSERV is running on.  As noted above, it is possible to insert a square-bracketed dotted-decimal IP address in this box for testing purposes, but L-Soft neither recommends nor supports this in production. This is the host name that LISTSERV will always identify itself with when it sends mail out.

2.2.2 MYDOMAIN

MYDOMAIN does not refer to your corporate domain.  MYDOMAIN is the space-separated list of all possible host names your machine might be known as. In many cases the value of MYDOMAIN is the same as NODE, but for instance some machines running LISTSERV also run the enterprise's World Wide Web server, and may thus be identified in DNS as something like "WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM".  And of course we'll assume that NODE has been set above to something like LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM.  Using this as an example you would set the MYDOMAIN setting to contain, in space-separated format, all of these names that mail might come in to LISTSERV under, with the NODE value coming first:

LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM POP.MYCOMPANY.COM

 

Alternately the same thing can be done by specifying

%NODE% WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM POP.MYCOMPANY.COM

 

This way if someone accidentally writes to [email protected], LISTSERV will recognize POP.MYCOMPANY.COM as equivalent to LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM and will process the mail as if it had been addressed to [email protected]  Otherwise the mail will bounce as LISTSERV has no other way to know what other names the machine might be known by in DNS.

2.2.3 SMTP_FORWARD

This setting refers to the name of the machine which will be handling LISTSERV's outgoing mail.  It must be a fully-qualified domain name of a machine registered in DNS.  For instance if your corporate mail gateway is MAIL.MYCOMPANY.COM, you could set SMTP_FORWARD to that value.

2.2.4 POSTMASTER

This is a space-separated list of [email protected] type email addresses belonging to people who have authority to manage LISTSERV--specifically the people who are allowed to create lists, but also who have pretty much global authority on the server to look at lists, modify list headers, and so forth.  There are some advanced options for this setting but for right now you will probably just want to insert your own email address so that you can test the server.

Note: The POSTMASTER should NEVER be [email protected] anywhere or [email protected] anywhere.  These userids are reserved and mean specific things to LISTSERV.  If you need to use a generic name for a postmaster account, it is recommended that you use something like "listmaster" or "lstmaint" instead.

2.2.5 CREATEPW

The password that will be used to create lists and perform certain management functions (such as administering LISTSERV's user password feature).  Note that when using the web management features, you do not use the CREATEPW= value, but rather your own personal LISTSERV password, to validate your identity.  See the main LISTSERV documentation for information on how to create a personal LISTSERV password.

Note: While they are still available and documented, CREATEPW and its companion STOREPW are obsolete, as postmasters can authenticate all commands with their personal LISTSERV password.  If you do not want to set CREATEPW at all, you should set it to the special value *NOPW*, which will disable the authentication system they are associated with.  *NOPW* is the recommended value.

2.2.6 MYORG (optional)

A string that identifies your organization in the From: line of administrative mail sent out by LISTSERV.  This defaults to the NODE value you coded above, but you can change it to be more descriptive, eg, "University of XYZ" or "My Company, Inc."  If you were to set it to "My Company, Inc.", the From: line of administrative mail would look like this:

From:         "My Company, Inc. LISTSERV Server (16.0)"
              <[email protected]COMPANY.COM>                    

Only the part preceding "LISTSERV Server" may be modified by the MYORG setting.  The rest of this string is hard-coded and cannot be changed.

2.3 Advanced configuration

There are a number of advanced configuration parameters that can be set to modify LISTSERV's behaviour and/or tune it for better performance.  The most common parameters are documented in the Site Configuration Keyword Reference document. Please be sure to consult the chapter in that manual that discusses keywords and other settings that are disabled or work differently under LISTSERV Lite than they do under LISTSERV Classic. 

2.4 Installing the License Activation Key (LAK)

If you are installing the Free Edition, the LAK will be installed for you automatically and you do not need to do anything further in this section.  If you have purchased a commercial license for LISTSERV Lite, the procedure to install it is as follows:

1.    Create a disk file with the license information supplied. If you received the license registration form electronically, simply delete the mail headers and other extraneous information (you do not need to remove the instructions found at the top of the LAK). If you received it via FAX or postal mail, you will have to retype the information. Please observe spacing carefully. To make the LAK easier to transcribe, we always insert multiple blanks where one is needed. Thus, unless you see a big white space on the FAX, you should not insert any blank. (Note that LAK information can also be entered via the SITE.EXE utility.)

2.    Make a backup copy of the file you have just created.

3.    Install a copy of the file under the name LICENSE.MERGE in the product's main directory. This would be MAIN\LICENSE.MERGE relative to your LISTSERV root directory (eg C:\LISTSERV\MAIN\LICENSE.MERGE) if you installed LISTSERV under C:\LISTSERV).

4.    Start LISTSERV (or stop and restart it if it was already running). It will compile the new LAK, verify its integrity, and merge it into its license database. If no error was detected, it will then delete the LICENSE.MERGE file. This is why you must make a backup copy of the license file before activating it. The LAK will of course remain in the license database, but you may need the original in case of hardware failure.

Important: The LICENSE.MERGE file MUST be a flat ASCII text file (Unicode is not supported).

If you create the LICENSE.MERGE file with NOTEPAD, please note that by default the NOTEPAD application will save your file with a .txt extension (e.g., if you type license.merge in the "Save as" dialog box, NOTEPAD will actually save license.merge.txt). If this happens you must rename the file to license.merge or LISTSERV will not see it on startup.  You can avoid this problem by enclosing the name of the file in double quotes, i.e., when you are prompted for the filename in the "Save as" dialog box, enter "license.merge"  (you must use the double quote marks!) and press the OK/Save button.  If you use the double quotes, your file will be saved  as license.merge and not as  license.merge.txt .

Since the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list is a user-supported support forum, your LAK information should never be sent there.  If you have trouble with the installation of your LAK, the LISTSERV support staff will be happy to assist you at [email protected] .  All other support inquiries should go to the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list.

 

 

 

 

 


To start LISTSERV for debugging/testing purposes, first open a CMD.EXE "Command Prompt" (otherwise known as a "DOS box" to us old-timers) in "Run as administrator" mode.  (You will have to right-click the Command Prompt icon and choose that option.)  Next, change to the drive where you have installed LISTSERV, enter CD LISTSERV\MAIN at the prompt, and hit return.

You should now be able to start LISTSERV interactively by entering "LSV START" at the prompt and hitting return.  You will see various startup messages go by and then you will be prompted to enter commands if you wish.  For instance, a SHOW LICENSE command issued from the interactive command line looks like this:

You may start the SMTPL.EXE SMTP "listener" service interactively in the same way.

You can run only one copy of LISTSERV at any given time. That is, you cannot start LISTSERV interactively if it is already running as a service, or vice-versa, nor can you start LISTSERV in multiple CMD windows. The same applies to the SMTP listener.

When LISTSERV is installed, it is registered in the Services Manager to start automatically as a system service at boot time.  Thus if you have rebooted your machine after installing LISTSERV, it may already be running.  If it is already running when you attempt to start it in a DOS box, you will get the following error:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>lsv start

>>> Unable to create SMTP synchronization events <<<

 

abnormal program termination

Similarly, if the SMTPL "listener" is already running as a service, you will get something like:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>smtpl start

SMTPL isn't as verbose.  It will start up with only a few messages:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>smtpl start

7 May 2018 14:39:31 LISTSERV SMTP listener, version 1.1d

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Copyright Eric Thomas 1994-2016

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Now listening to 0.0.0.0, port 25.

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Initialization complete - 200 concurrent threads.

To test the server, send Internet mail to the LISTSERV address with some random command, such as HELP, to check that the SMTP listener and outgoing mail interface are working correctly. Please note that the "LISTSERV address" is the address formed by "[email protected]" + the value you defined in the site configuration file for NODE=. For instance, if you defined NODE=LISTSERV.XYZ.COM, the LISTSERV address would be [email protected]

DO NOT attempt to create lists or use the WWW interface until the basic email functions (ie, sending commands to LISTSERV by email and getting a response) are tested and working correctly.

Note that LISTSERV will not see any mail you send it via MAPI unless you have a MAPI/SMTP gateway for your LAN. LISTSERV does not include a MAPI gateway and thus does not support MAPI.

When running as services, LISTSERV and SMTPL both create log files in the \LISTSERV\LOG directory but, for performance reasons, the file buffers are not flushed with each and every write. If you attempt to TYPE the log file, it may appear to be empty. If you wait a few minutes, the buffers will be flushed and you will be able to examine the files. LISTSERV generates "crash reports" when it terminates abnormally, which are sent to the LISTSERV postmasters by default. These "crash reports" normally include a traceback of the error along with the last 100 LISTSERV log entries prior to the crash, and should be sent to L-Soft support for problem resolution.

In interactive mode, the log files are also created but the file buffers are flushed continuously. Flushing the logs continuously ensures that, in the event of a severe program failure, the logs will always contain information about the cause of the failure.

(Due to the fact that writing to command windows can significantly slow down an application, interactive mode should be used only when you are trying to troubleshoot a problem.)

Note: While critical errors are reported to the Windows System Event Log and can be examined with Event Viewer (select the Application log), the Windows error codes are almost never useful for debugging problems with LISTSERV and the LISTSERV console log should be consulted in favor of the event log when a problem arises.

When running as services, both LISTSERV and SMTPL may be stopped from the Control Panel/Services applet, or by issuing the commands NET STOP LISTSERV and NET STOP LISTSERV-SMTP from a DOS prompt.

When running in interactive mode, to stop LISTSERV, simply type STOP. To stop SMTPL, wait until there is no more activity and type Ctrl-C.

3.1 Windows Firewall Considerations

It is recommended that sites using the Windows Firewall should open the firewall to the LISTSERV program.  This is the preferred method as it makes it easy to change various TCP/IP-related aspects of LISTSERV's operation (e.g., outbound mail port, TCPGUI port) without having to change the firewall.

For the SMTPL.EXE "listener", it is recommended to open the firewall on port 25 from all IP addresses.  Alternately, simply open the firewall to the appropriate program.  The only advantage to explicitly opening port 25 as opposed to opening the firewall to SMTPL.EXE or some other specific MTA program is that you can easily switch from SMTPL to another MTA or vice versa without having to worry about changing the firewall settings.  Port 25 is also a "well-known" port so inbound mail is in almost every case going to come to port 25, regardless of which program is listening on that port for LISTSERV's mail.

 

4.1 Setting Up the Interface During Installation

It is strongly recommended that you set up the basic web interface when you install the software.  The installation kit will offer to do this for you; you need only provide the directory used for CGI programs and the directory and base URL used for LISTSERV's web files.

If you choose to set up the interface later, please see the next section.

4.2 Setting Up the Interface Manually

If you choose to install the web interface manually, please refer to the appropriate white paper depending on what version of Microsoft Internet Information Services you are running:

Configuring the LISTSERV Web Interface for IIS 7.x

Configuring the LISTSERV Web Interface for IIS 8.x

These and other informative white papers can be found on L-Soft's web site at http://www.lsoft.com/resources/whitepaper.asp .

Complete information on installing the Web Archive Interface (including how to publish the content of "Send= Private" and/or "Confidential= Yes" lists) is contained in the Site Manager's Operations Manual for LISTSERV.

 


Because of non-backward-compatible changes made in LISTSERV 16.0 to the format of LISTSERV's SIGNUP files which allow UTF-8 characters to be used in passwords, and the addition of non-reversible subscriber password encryption, L-Soft STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that, prior to upgrading, a full backup be made of your LISTSERV installation if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 16.0.

IMPORTANT: LISTSERV 16.5 requires a version 16.5 LAK!

You must obtain and install a LISTSERV version 16.5 product LAK prior to upgrading your server, or LISTSERV will not start after the upgrade.

IMPORTANT: Install your LISTSERV 16.5 product LAK before upgrading! A valid product LAK (License Activation Key) with "REL=16.5" must be installed before upgrading or LISTSERV will not start after the upgrade.

If you have not received a LISTSERV 16.5 product LAK, please contact your sales representative or [email protected] before upgrading!

If your product LAK has EXP=NEVER, you will also need to install an appropriate LISTSERV maintenance LAK.

To find out if you can upgrade to LISTSERV 16.5 with your current LAKs, please issue a SHOW LICENSE command to LISTSERV and examine the response. It will be similar to this:

License type:       Permanent

Expiration date:    None - perpetual license

Maintenance until:  26 Nov 2018, serial number MNT-XYZ-1;728996

Capacity:           Unlimited

Version:            16.5

Serial number:      XYZ-1

Build date:         7 May 2018

Your license key will be valid for the 16.5 upgrade if your current product LAK is for version 16.5 or higher and your maintenance is not expired.

If you are running the Free Edition, it will look like this:

* License type:      Graduated

* Expiration date:   None - perpetual license

* Maintenance until: 7 May 2018, serial number MNT-FREE-EDITION-WINNT-24;728996

* Capacity:          10 points (0 in use)

* Product options:   LITEFE

* Scope:             MAXSUB(500),PERLIST

* Version:           16.5

* Serial number:     FREE-EDITION-WINNT

* Build date:        7 May 2018

For the Free Edition, the license key will be valid for the 16.5 upgrade if your current product LAK is for version 16.5 or higher and your maintenance is the same as (or later than) the build date of the copy you are running.

Upgrading LISTSERV is almost as simple as installing it.  Simply follow these steps:

·         For paid copies of LISTSERV Lite:  If you are upgrading from one full version of LISTSERV Lite to another (for instance, from 16.0 to 16.5), you should have received a new LAK from your sales representative.  If you do not have a LAK for the version you are upgrading to, stop right here and contact your L-Soft sales representative. If you are not sure what version you are currently licensed for, send a "SHOW LICENSE" command to LISTSERV.

·         For the LISTSERV Lite Free Edition: Your installation kit will contain an updated LAK which permits you to continue running the Free Edition.

·         If you have received a new LAK, install it onto your old installation, following the instructions that come with the LAK. Send LISTSERV a "SHOW LICENSE" command after restarting LISTSERV to ensure that the new LAK has been installed properly. Do not proceed further until this step has been correctly completed.

·         Back up the entire LISTSERV directory hierarchy (just in case).

·         Stop LISTSERV and SMTPL (note that if you are running the legacy LSMTP MTA, you do not need to stop SMTPL as it should be disabled).

·         Get the current Windows LISTSERV Lite kit from the LISTSERV Lite download page and install it over your existing installation. Your current configuration, lists, and other settings will be preserved.  Note that evaluation kits are production code limited only by an evaluation LAK, which your production LAK will override.

·         If you are running the legacy LSMTP MTA as your mailer, open the Windows Control Panel/Services applet and ensure that the "LISTSERV SMTP Listener" service is disabled.  This is very important!  Note that the current version of the installation GUI will not register SMTPL.EXE as a service if an installation of LSMTP is detected in the Windows registry, but it is still wise to check this.

Note:  While sites with valid licenses for L-Soft's legacy LSMTP mailer may of course continue to use LSMTP for both inbound and outbound mail, L-Soft strongly discourages the use of this discontinued, no longer supported product.  We will be happy to discuss alternatives with you; please simply write to [email protected] and request details.

·         If you have the web archive interface installed, either re-run the web archive configuration feature of SITE.EXE or manually copy WA.EXE from the \LISTSERV\MAIN directory to your cgi-bin or scripts directory to update it. The setup program will not do it for you automatically.

·         Restart LISTSERV and SMTPL (if not running legacy LSMTP) and send a command to make sure the installation was successful.


noteNote:  Some of the examples in this section may show list configuration options which are not available in LISTSERV Lite.

Site administrators can create a new mailing list, including the directories necessary for supporting the archives, in a matter of minutes using the List Creation Wizard. This wizard guides you through a set of questions about the type of list that you want to create.

To create a list using the List Creation Wizard, select ServerAdministration > MailingLists > ListCreation from the Toolbar.

The List Creation Screen opens. Enter the ListName, the ListTitle, and then select the Wizard (Step-by-Step) option.

ListCreation_ListName

Click the [Next ->] button to continue. The List Type screen opens. Enter the ListOwner, and then select the type of list you’d like to create. Your choices are AnnouncementList, UnmoderatedDiscussionList, and ModeratedDiscussionList.

ListCreation_ListType

Click the [Next ->] button to continue. The Miscellaneous screen opens. Define how subscriptions are handled and which users can send messages to the list. This screen will vary slightly depending on the type of list you’re creating.

ListCreation_Misc

Click [Next ->] to continue. The Archives screen opens. Click the ListArchives drop-down menu to define whether or not you want to archive messages posted to the mailing list. If posted messages are archived, then click the AccesstoListArchives drop-down menu to choose whether the archives will be available to the public or to subscribers only. Finally, define whether to create the archive directories manually or to let LISTSERV do it.

7.3 Getting Support

To keep costs to a minimum, we have adopted the following "light weight" maintenance and support structure for the LISTSERV Lite Free Edition:

·         Fixes (usually in the form of level-set releases) will be made available from time to time and can be downloaded at no charge.

·         Technical assistance for the Free Edition will be provided through a special mailing list, [email protected] LISTSERV Lite administrators will be invited to subscribe to the list and share problems and solutions. L-Soft support staff will monitor the list and answer the tougher questions as time permits.

·         L-Soft will accept bug reports from LISTSERV Lite customers – including those using the Free Edition. However, L-Soft may not be able to provide individual answers. Furthermore, L-Soft does not guarantee that all problems will be solved, or that they will be solved in any particular time frame.

·         The L-Soft support helpdesk will not accept calls from LISTSERV Lite Free Edition customers, or from paid LISTSERV Lite customers who did not purchase support. All support inquiries must be directed to the LISTSERV-LITE list, which is monitored by the support staff. Sometimes it may take a while for the support staff to answer these questions, because requests from LISTSERV Classic customers, who pay a yearly support fee, have a higher priority.

·         New full versions, when released, will be made available under the Free Edition license. Technical assistance for older versions will continue to be available for a reasonable period of time on the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list. Fixes will be provided only for the current version.

This approach strikes a balance between making sure that customers are not left out in the cold when a serious problem occurs, and keeping support costs to a reasonable level.

It is possible to purchase maintenance (including full support and upgrades) for LISTSERV Lite.  Please contact your sales representative for details and pricing.

Last Revised 7 May 2018

 



This manual is for LISTSERV Lite running under Microsoft Windows.

This manual makes the following assumptions:

1.   You have a supported Microsoft Windows operating system installed and operating normally on a computer in your network that meets the various technical requirements listed later in this guide;

2.   You have physical access to the machine in question and are logged in as Administrator, or at least as a member of the Administrators group with full control of the machine;

3.   You can troubleshoot your supported version of Microsoft Windows (i.e. native OS problems, not problems related to LISTSERV) without assistance from this guide or from L-Soft.

Number three is particularly important.  If you have purchased support from L-Soft for LISTSERV Lite, L-Soft will be happy to assist you with LISTSERV-related problems arising under a supported version of Microsoft Windows but is unable to assist you in setting up your operating system, the Internet Information Service (or any other web server software available for the supported Microsoft Windows operating systems), or any aspect of your operating system that is not directly related to LISTSERV's operation.  If you are not familiar with Microsoft Windows operating systems, please be aware that L-Soft cannot help you with either their installation or subsequent troubleshooting.

This manual makes the following assumptions:

"Windows" or "the Windows operating system" means the Microsoft Windows Server and Workstation operating system versions currently supported by L-Soft.  In other words, if we say "Windows", we mean "all of the Microsoft Windows operating systems under which LISTSERV is currently supported".

"Windows Server" means specifically the Microsoft Windows Server operating systems which are currently supported by L-Soft.

"Windows Workstation" means specifically  the Microsoft Windows workstation operating systems which are currently supported by L-Soft.

If we indicate a specific Microsoft Windows operating system by name, for example, "Windows 10", we mean specifically that version of the operating system and no other.

At the release date of LISTSERV 16.5, the following Microsoft Windows operating systems were supported by L-Soft for use with LISTSERV:

 

 

 

 

L-Soft LISTSERV 16.5 Supported Microsoft Windows Operating Systems

LISTSERV for Microsoft Windows

Windows 7 (64-bit only)

 

Windows 8.x (64-bit only)

 

Windows 10 (64-bit only)

 

Windows Server 2008 R2

 

Windows Server 2012

 

Windows Server 2012 R2

 

Windows Server 2016

 

Support for 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems was withdrawn by L-Soft as of version 16.0-2017a.


You will need to gather some information before you start installation:

·         What is the DNS hostname for the machine on which LISTSERV is going to be installed?  This is something like LISTSERV.YOURDOMAIN.COM .  It must be a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) and it must map to an A or MX record as noted above in the networking requirements.  While it is possible to use a bracketed IP (eg, [10.0.0.24]) for testing purposes, as noted above the use of bracketed IPs in production is not supported and not recommended.

·         What SMTP server do you intend to use for LISTSERV's outgoing mail?  Like the hostname for the LISTSERV machine, this must be an FQDN hostname listed in DNS.  If you will be installing L-Soft's legacy LSMTP MTA on the same machine as LISTSERV then the answer to this question is identical to the answer for #1.  Otherwise this must be the name of an external machine, ie, one running sendmail or some other SMTP implementation that can accept LISTSERV's outgoing mail for delivery.  (If you will be installing LSMTP you will probably still want to identify an external SMTP machine to use temporarily to test LISTSERV prior to installing LSMTP, which is the recommended procedure.)

·         What are the email addresses for the LISTSERV maintainers (the person or persons who are authorized to create lists and operate/maintain the server)?

·         What drive and directory are you going to install LISTSERV into?  (The installation script defaults to C:\LISTSERV; if you have more space on another drive, eg, a RAID array or other large disk, you will want to install LISTSERV on that drive rather than on C:.)

·         What program group or folder do you want LISTSERV's icons to be placed in?

1.1 Technical Requirements

There are three classes of technical requirements for running LISTSERV under Windows --hardware, software, and networking.  Please read each section carefully.

1.1.1  Hardware Requirements

1.   CPU Architecture: LISTSERV runs under 64-bit Windows on 64-bit Intel architectures only.

2.   Multiple Processors: While LISTSERV itself will not use multiple processors (LISTSERV is a single-threaded application), overall machine performance may be enhanced by use of multiple processors if other applications running simultaneously on the machine can take advantage of them.

3.   Memory: L-Soft recommends that a dedicated Windows LISTSERV machine start out with a minimum of 4GB, as this will minimize paging and can lead to a marked improvement in performance, particularly if the web archive/administration interface (see below) is implemented.  In particular, LISTSERV servers running with the High Performance Option (HPO) require more memory than non-HPO servers and should therefore start out with at least 8GB.

4.   Disk Space Needed: LISTSERV itself takes up very little space (perhaps 4MB total for all of its default system files). When planning a LISTSERV system you need to take into account how large your lists will be (100 bytes per subscriber entry in a given list) and how much space you will need for discussion list archives, which have the potential to grow quite large depending on your traffic and number of lists.  For most small systems, a 4GB or larger drive is probably sufficient for some time.  Larger systems will naturally require larger disks.

5.   Disk Architecture: LISTSERV will run perfectly well for most sites on inexpensive SATA disks of the modern sort. If performance is an issue, it will be greatly enhanced by the use of fast SAS disks in a RAID array with write-back caching and a write-back battery back-up. Write-through caching is not recommended.  Usually it is best to divide a RAID array into at least two partitions: A boot partition of 3GB (effective 1.5GB) RAID 0+1, and a data partition making up the rest of the available disk space at RAID 5.  If it is not feasible to divide the array in this manner, RAID 0+1 for the entire array is suggested.  (The boot partition can be larger if desired -- particularly as very large disks are much more economical than in the past -- but we would still recommend that it be configured RAID 0+1).

      With prices continuing to drop for modern data storage, the above should be considered absolute minimums and we would actually recommend starting with larger disks and partitions wherever possible.

      To date we have not done any testing with solid-state drives.  However we consider it prudent to caution against using SSD for highly-dynamic data such as LISTSERV's spool and archives.  SSD might profitably be used for boot partitions, however, where data (at least in comparison to LISTSERV's data) rarely or only occasionally changes.

6.   Disk Format and Security: L-Soft strongly recommends that LISTSERV be installed on an NTFS-formatted partition. LISTSERV will run out of a FAT partition, but FAT does not provide the same level of security and performance available with NTFS.

7.   LISTSERV in a virtualized environment: LISTSERV works very well in a Microsoft Hyper-V environment.  We recommend using a dedicated Hyper-V instance for this purpose, with service parameters adjusted to fit your local needs.  The same minimums noted above for physical servers apply to Hyper-V instances.  If you are looking for a high-availability solution for LISTSERV for Windows, Hyper-V with its failover clustering feature may be what you are looking for.

General performance notes:

·         L-Soft STRONGLY DISCOURAGES running LISTSERV out of a RAM disk in order to speed up I/O.  This is not a supported configuration and if you have problems with it the support group's response will be to tell you to stop using the RAM disk.

·         If system RAM is tight, either a fast disk or more RAM is a necessity if you are to minimize I/O time lost to paging.  An otherwise fast system can become quite sluggish if it is required constantly to read and write to virtual memory. Adding more RAM is usually preferred as it is more efficient to access RAM than it is to access even a fast disk.

1.1.2 Software Requirements

1.   LISTSERV requires one of the Microsoft Windows operating systems listed in the matrix found in the Preface to this manual.

2.   Either Internet Information Service (IIS) or some other WWW server (ie, Apache) should be installed on the machine if you intend to use the web archive and administration interface.  LISTSERV's web interface cannot be installed on a separate machine.  If you are using an older version of IIS which includes the IIS SMTP service, IIS SMTP should be disabled or not installed unless you intend to use it for inbound and outbound mail (in which case, please contact L-Soft support to receive a white paper describing how to do this).

3.   INBOUND MAIL: The SMTP "listener" service (SMTPL.EXE) provided in the LISTSERV installation kit must be installed.  Third-party SMTP MTAs (Mail Transfer Agents) are supported for inbound LISTSERV mail if they can be configured to redirect LISTSERV's mail to SMTPL running on a non-standard port (for instance, 40025).

Note:  While sites with valid licenses for L-Soft's legacy LSMTP mailer may of course continue to use LSMTP for both inbound and outbound mail, L-Soft strongly discourages the use of this discontinued, no longer supported product.  We will be happy to discuss alternatives with you; please simply write to [email protected] and request details.

4.   OUTBOUND MAIL:  The SMTPL.EXE "listener" service cannot be used for outbound mail.  You will need to have access to an SMTP MTA that can handle LISTSERV's outbound mail. This machine can be a unix machine running one of the standard unix MTAs (sendmail/qmail/postfix), a Windows machine running Microsoft Exchange, or any fully-standards-compliant SMTP server running on any platform, as long as it can handle the amount of traffic you will generate with LISTSERV.

      Low-end SMTP servers can handle modest delivery loads (perhaps 10K-25K messages per hour, although we have seen a well-tuned IIS SMTP instance handle up to 75K per hour). For heavier delivery loads, L-Soft recommends a high-performance SMTP server that can handle loads of more than 1 million messages per hour.

      If the outbound MTA is running on an external machine, that machine must be configured to accept for delivery so-called "relay mail" from the machine running LISTSERV (it may of course otherwise be configured to reject "relay mail" coming from other hosts).

      If you need a "turnkey" single-machine solution for LISTSERV, please contact the support department for assistance.

Please note the following for both inbound and outbound mail:

● LISTSERV does not have the capability of accessing a remote mailbox for its inbound mail.  LISTSERV does not understand POP or IMAP or any other mail retrieval protocol.  All mail coming in to LISTSERV must arrive via SMTP.

● LISTSERV cannot connect directly to an SMTP server that requires SMTP AUTH on the outbound side.  If you cannot arrange an exception for the LISTSERV server such that it is not required to authenticate to the outbound SMTP server, you will have to use an intermediary method to offload the outbound mail.  Typically, the IIS SMTP server mentioned above can be used to solve this problem.

1.1.3 Networking requirements

1.   TCP/IP connectivity, preferably 24/7, with enough bandwidth to handle your workload.  Please note carefully that LISTSERV is not designed to dial up and access POP mailboxes. The proper installation and operation of LISTSERV is contingent on direct connection to the Internet in order for it to receive and send SMTP mail.  If you do not understand this, L-Soft strongly recommends that you get expert technical advice before proceeding further, or consider using a hosting service instead of running LISTSERV yourself
(see http://www.lsoft.com/products/ease.asp for an overview of hosting services offered by
L-Soft).

2.   In conjunction with networking requirement #1, and as a fundamental requirement of the SMTP mail protocol, LISTSERV requires a static IP address which is mapped via a DNS A or MX record to a particular host name (typically LISTSERV.yourdomain, for example, LISTSERV.EXAMPLE.COM). If you are planning to use the web archive/administration interface with LISTSERV, an A record is required at minimum (web browsers cannot connect to hosts that have only an MX record).  Please note carefully that L-Soft does not support LISTSERV servers running without DNS entries (ie we do not support servers configured with bracketed IP addresses instead of FQDNs [fully-qualified domain names, for example, LISTSERV.EXAMPLE.COM]).

 

      The use of a CNAME is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED because typically such hostnames are rewritten ("canonicalized") when mail sent from them traverses the Internet.  This will cause mail to appear to be coming from a "different" host than your subscribers may be expecting, even though in fact the A and CNAME records point to the same physical machine.

      Microsoft's WINS and MAPI protocols are not supported or used by LISTSERV.

      There are no guarantees that LISTSERV will work with a dynamically-assigned IP address (for instance, one obtained through DHCP), and a DNS entry is required if you expect people to be able to send mail to, and also--in many cases where the user's ISP does a reverse DNS lookup to validate that the mail is not spam--to receive mail from the server.

      Again, if you do not understand any part of this requirement, L-Soft strongly recommends that you get expert technical advice before proceeding further.

3.   If installing LISTSERV behind a firewall with the expectation that users from the outside world will be able to access it, it is imperative that you provide access to the following TCP ports on the LISTSERV machine:  Port 25 (SMTP) and port 80 (webserver, if the web archive/administration feature is enabled).  It may also be necessary to provide access to port 53 (nameserver) if LISTSERV is unable to resolve the name of its outgoing mail host. Opening other ports may be necessary for other features to work properly (e.g., port 443 if your web server supports SSL/https).

      Installing LISTSERV behind a firewall is almost more of an art than a science (and every firewall seems to be different) but the bottom line is that the above ports must be open if you expect LISTSERV to work.  It is not recommended to route incoming LISTSERV mail through another machine (ie the firewall) as this normally leads to complications.

1.1.4 Older Versions of Windows Server No Longer Supported

L-Soft no longer supports Microsoft Windows Server earlier than Server 2008 R2. Only 64-bit Windows operating systems are supported.

1.1.5 Older Versions of Windows Workstation No Longer Supported

L-Soft supports only the 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 7, 8.x, and 10.  Use of the Professional or Ultimate Editions is strongly recommended; use of the Home Edition is not recommended.


L-Soft provides its software via FTP download only. The installation kits for LISTSERV Lite for Windows are found at

http://www.lsoft.com/download/listservlite.asp

These kits are complete implementations of LISTSERV Lite Free Edition for Windows.  If you have already purchased a paid copy of LISTSERV Lite you will have received a production LAK separately--we will describe the installation of that key later in this document.

2.1  Starting the installation

First, place the distribution kit into a temporary directory (e.g., C:\TEMP or C:\SCRATCH).  DO NOT try to run the kit from the directory into which you are going to actually install LISTSERV.

Next, make sure that you are logged in either as the Administrator user or as a member of the Administrators group.  You cannot install LISTSERV unless you have administrative control of the computer.

The kit is a self-contained, self-extracting setup kit that includes all of the files you will need for the installation.  Simply run LISTSERV-LITE.EXE from a DOS prompt or double-click on it in Windows Explorer to start the installation and follow the script.

2.2 Basic configuration

The installation script will ask whether or not you want to go ahead and configure the LISTSERV server.  You MUST do a basic server configuration at install time or the installer will exit, but bear in mind that a more complex configuration can be done after finishing the installation, if necessary.  For the basic configuration done at install time, you will need to have the information discussed below for NODE, SMTP_FORWARD, and POSTMASTER.  (Note:  This basic configuration step is skipped for upgrades, which are assumed to be already configured.)

Configuring the server after installation is done via the web administration interface.  Log in as a LISTSERV administrator, and choose Server Administration/Site Configuration/Site Configuration to enter the web-based configurator.

It should be noted that the MAIN\SITE.CFG file is now used only for initial startup and for certain settings which need to be read in immediately when LISTSERV starts; changes made via the web configurator are written to a platform-independent file which is maintained by LISTSERV and which should not be hand-edited.

In addition, the old SITE.EXE configuration GUI is no longer supported or provided (because it operates on the MAIN\SITE.CFG file).  If you have a copy from a previous installation, it should not be used, and L-Soft recommends that it simply be deleted along with SITE.HLP and SITEDATA.FILE.


 

2.2.1 NODE

The NODE setting is the fully-qualified domain name as registered in DNS for the machine LISTSERV is running on.  As noted above, it is possible to insert a square-bracketed dotted-decimal IP address in this box for testing purposes, but L-Soft neither recommends nor supports this in production. This is the host name that LISTSERV will always identify itself with when it sends mail out.

2.2.2 MYDOMAIN

MYDOMAIN does not refer to your corporate domain.  MYDOMAIN is the space-separated list of all possible host names your machine might be known as. In many cases the value of MYDOMAIN is the same as NODE, but for instance some machines running LISTSERV also run the enterprise's World Wide Web server, and may thus be identified in DNS as something like "WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM".  And of course we'll assume that NODE has been set above to something like LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM.  Using this as an example you would set the MYDOMAIN setting to contain, in space-separated format, all of these names that mail might come in to LISTSERV under, with the NODE value coming first:

LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM POP.MYCOMPANY.COM

 

Alternately the same thing can be done by specifying

%NODE% WWW.MYCOMPANY.COM POP.MYCOMPANY.COM

 

This way if someone accidentally writes to [email protected], LISTSERV will recognize POP.MYCOMPANY.COM as equivalent to LISTSERV.MYCOMPANY.COM and will process the mail as if it had been addressed to [email protected]  Otherwise the mail will bounce as LISTSERV has no other way to know what other names the machine might be known by in DNS.

2.2.3 SMTP_FORWARD

This setting refers to the name of the machine which will be handling LISTSERV's outgoing mail.  It must be a fully-qualified domain name of a machine registered in DNS.  For instance if your corporate mail gateway is MAIL.MYCOMPANY.COM, you could set SMTP_FORWARD to that value.

2.2.4 POSTMASTER

This is a space-separated list of [email protected] type email addresses belonging to people who have authority to manage LISTSERV--specifically the people who are allowed to create lists, but also who have pretty much global authority on the server to look at lists, modify list headers, and so forth.  There are some advanced options for this setting but for right now you will probably just want to insert your own email address so that you can test the server.

Note: The POSTMASTER should NEVER be [email protected] anywhere or [email protected] anywhere.  These userids are reserved and mean specific things to LISTSERV.  If you need to use a generic name for a postmaster account, it is recommended that you use something like "listmaster" or "lstmaint" instead.

2.2.5 CREATEPW

The password that will be used to create lists and perform certain management functions (such as administering LISTSERV's user password feature).  Note that when using the web management features, you do not use the CREATEPW= value, but rather your own personal LISTSERV password, to validate your identity.  See the main LISTSERV documentation for information on how to create a personal LISTSERV password.

Note: While they are still available and documented, CREATEPW and its companion STOREPW are obsolete, as postmasters can authenticate all commands with their personal LISTSERV password.  If you do not want to set CREATEPW at all, you should set it to the special value *NOPW*, which will disable the authentication system they are associated with.  *NOPW* is the recommended value.

2.2.6 MYORG (optional)

A string that identifies your organization in the From: line of administrative mail sent out by LISTSERV.  This defaults to the NODE value you coded above, but you can change it to be more descriptive, eg, "University of XYZ" or "My Company, Inc."  If you were to set it to "My Company, Inc.", the From: line of administrative mail would look like this:

From:         "My Company, Inc. LISTSERV Server (16.0)"
              <[email protected]>                    

Only the part preceding "LISTSERV Server" may be modified by the MYORG setting.  The rest of this string is hard-coded and cannot be changed.

2.3 Advanced configuration

There are a number of advanced configuration parameters that can be set to modify LISTSERV's behaviour and/or tune it for better performance.  The most common parameters are documented in the Site Configuration Keyword Reference document. Please be sure to consult the chapter in that manual that discusses keywords and other settings that are disabled or work differently under LISTSERV Lite than they do under LISTSERV Classic. 

2.4 Installing the License Activation Key (LAK)

If you are installing the Free Edition, the LAK will be installed for you automatically and you do not need to do anything further in this section.  If you have purchased a commercial license for LISTSERV Lite, the procedure to install it is as follows:

1.    Create a disk file with the license information supplied. If you received the license registration form electronically, simply delete the mail headers and other extraneous information (you do not need to remove the instructions found at the top of the LAK). If you received it via FAX or postal mail, you will have to retype the information. Please observe spacing carefully. To make the LAK easier to transcribe, we always insert multiple blanks where one is needed. Thus, unless you see a big white space on the FAX, you should not insert any blank. (Note that LAK information can also be entered via the SITE.EXE utility.)

2.    Make a backup copy of the file you have just created.

3.    Install a copy of the file under the name LICENSE.MERGE in the product's main directory. This would be MAIN\LICENSE.MERGE relative to your LISTSERV root directory (eg C:\LISTSERV\MAIN\LICENSE.MERGE) if you installed LISTSERV under C:\LISTSERV).

4.    Start LISTSERV (or stop and restart it if it was already running). It will compile the new LAK, verify its integrity, and merge it into its license database. If no error was detected, it will then delete the LICENSE.MERGE file. This is why you must make a backup copy of the license file before activating it. The LAK will of course remain in the license database, but you may need the original in case of hardware failure.

Important: The LICENSE.MERGE file MUST be a flat ASCII text file (Unicode is not supported).

If you create the LICENSE.MERGE file with NOTEPAD, please note that by default the NOTEPAD application will save your file with a .txt extension (e.g., if you type license.merge in the "Save as" dialog box, NOTEPAD will actually save license.merge.txt). If this happens you must rename the file to license.merge or LISTSERV will not see it on startup.  You can avoid this problem by enclosing the name of the file in double quotes, i.e., when you are prompted for the filename in the "Save as" dialog box, enter "license.merge"  (you must use the double quote marks!) and press the OK/Save button.  If you use the double quotes, your file will be saved  as license.merge and not as  license.merge.txt .

Since the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list is a user-supported support forum, your LAK information should never be sent there.  If you have trouble with the installation of your LAK, the LISTSERV support staff will be happy to assist you at [email protected] .  All other support inquiries should go to the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list.

 

 

 

 

 


To start LISTSERV for debugging/testing purposes, first open a CMD.EXE "Command Prompt" (otherwise known as a "DOS box" to us old-timers) in "Run as administrator" mode.  (You will have to right-click the Command Prompt icon and choose that option.)  Next, change to the drive where you have installed LISTSERV, enter CD LISTSERV\MAIN at the prompt, and hit return.

You should now be able to start LISTSERV interactively by entering "LSV START" at the prompt and hitting return.  You will see various startup messages go by and then you will be prompted to enter commands if you wish.  For instance, a SHOW LICENSE command issued from the interactive command line looks like this:

You may start the SMTPL.EXE SMTP "listener" service interactively in the same way.

You can run only one copy of LISTSERV at any given time. That is, you cannot start LISTSERV interactively if it is already running as a service, or vice-versa, nor can you start LISTSERV in multiple CMD windows. The same applies to the SMTP listener.

When LISTSERV is installed, it is registered in the Services Manager to start automatically as a system service at boot time.  Thus if you have rebooted your machine after installing LISTSERV, it may already be running.  If it is already running when you attempt to start it in a DOS box, you will get the following error:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>lsv start

>>> Unable to create SMTP synchronization events <<<

 

abnormal program termination

Similarly, if the SMTPL "listener" is already running as a service, you will get something like:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>smtpl start

SMTPL isn't as verbose.  It will start up with only a few messages:

C:\LISTSERV\MAIN>smtpl start

7 May 2018 14:39:31 LISTSERV SMTP listener, version 1.1d

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Copyright Eric Thomas 1994-2016

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Now listening to 0.0.0.0, port 25.

7 May 2018 14:39:31 Initialization complete - 200 concurrent threads.

To test the server, send Internet mail to the LISTSERV address with some random command, such as HELP, to check that the SMTP listener and outgoing mail interface are working correctly. Please note that the "LISTSERV address" is the address formed by "[email protected]" + the value you defined in the site configuration file for NODE=. For instance, if you defined NODE=LISTSERV.XYZ.COM, the LISTSERV address would be [email protected]

DO NOT attempt to create lists or use the WWW interface until the basic email functions (ie, sending commands to LISTSERV by email and getting a response) are tested and working correctly.

Note that LISTSERV will not see any mail you send it via MAPI unless you have a MAPI/SMTP gateway for your LAN. LISTSERV does not include a MAPI gateway and thus does not support MAPI.

When running as services, LISTSERV and SMTPL both create log files in the \LISTSERV\LOG directory but, for performance reasons, the file buffers are not flushed with each and every write. If you attempt to TYPE the log file, it may appear to be empty. If you wait a few minutes, the buffers will be flushed and you will be able to examine the files. LISTSERV generates "crash reports" when it terminates abnormally, which are sent to the LISTSERV postmasters by default. These "crash reports" normally include a traceback of the error along with the last 100 LISTSERV log entries prior to the crash, and should be sent to L-Soft support for problem resolution.

In interactive mode, the log files are also created but the file buffers are flushed continuously. Flushing the logs continuously ensures that, in the event of a severe program failure, the logs will always contain information about the cause of the failure.

(Due to the fact that writing to command windows can significantly slow down an application, interactive mode should be used only when you are trying to troubleshoot a problem.)

Note: While critical errors are reported to the Windows System Event Log and can be examined with Event Viewer (select the Application log), the Windows error codes are almost never useful for debugging problems with LISTSERV and the LISTSERV console log should be consulted in favor of the event log when a problem arises.

When running as services, both LISTSERV and SMTPL may be stopped from the Control Panel/Services applet, or by issuing the commands NET STOP LISTSERV and NET STOP LISTSERV-SMTP from a DOS prompt.

When running in interactive mode, to stop LISTSERV, simply type STOP. To stop SMTPL, wait until there is no more activity and type Ctrl-C.

3.1 Windows Firewall Considerations

It is recommended that sites using the Windows Firewall should open the firewall to the LISTSERV program.  This is the preferred method as it makes it easy to change various TCP/IP-related aspects of LISTSERV's operation (e.g., outbound mail port, TCPGUI port) without having to change the firewall.

For the SMTPL.EXE "listener", it is recommended to open the firewall on port 25 from all IP addresses.  Alternately, simply open the firewall to the appropriate program.  The only advantage to explicitly opening port 25 as opposed to opening the firewall to SMTPL.EXE or some other specific MTA program is that you can easily switch from SMTPL to another MTA or vice versa without having to worry about changing the firewall settings.  Port 25 is also a "well-known" port so inbound mail is in almost every case going to come to port 25, regardless of which program is listening on that port for LISTSERV's mail.

 

4.1 Setting Up the Interface During Installation

It is strongly recommended that you set up the basic web interface when you install the software.  The installation kit will offer to do this for you; you need only provide the directory used for CGI programs and the directory and base URL used for LISTSERV's web files.

If you choose to set up the interface later, please see the next section.

4.2 Setting Up the Interface Manually

If you choose to install the web interface manually, please refer to the appropriate white paper depending on what version of Microsoft Internet Information Services you are running:

Configuring the LISTSERV Web Interface for IIS 7.x

Configuring the LISTSERV Web Interface for IIS 8.x

These and other informative white papers can be found on L-Soft's web site at http://www.lsoft.com/resources/whitepaper.asp .

Complete information on installing the Web Archive Interface (including how to publish the content of "Send= Private" and/or "Confidential= Yes" lists) is contained in the Site Manager's Operations Manual for LISTSERV.

 


Because of non-backward-compatible changes made in LISTSERV 16.0 to the format of LISTSERV's SIGNUP files which allow UTF-8 characters to be used in passwords, and the addition of non-reversible subscriber password encryption, L-Soft STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that, prior to upgrading, a full backup be made of your LISTSERV installation if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 16.0.

IMPORTANT: LISTSERV 16.5 requires a version 16.5 LAK!

You must obtain and install a LISTSERV version 16.5 product LAK prior to upgrading your server, or LISTSERV will not start after the upgrade.

IMPORTANT: Install your LISTSERV 16.5 product LAK before upgrading! A valid product LAK (License Activation Key) with "REL=16.5" must be installed before upgrading or LISTSERV will not start after the upgrade.

If you have not received a LISTSERV 16.5 product LAK, please contact your sales representative or [email protected] before upgrading!

If your product LAK has EXP=NEVER, you will also need to install an appropriate LISTSERV maintenance LAK.

To find out if you can upgrade to LISTSERV 16.5 with your current LAKs, please issue a SHOW LICENSE command to LISTSERV and examine the response. It will be similar to this:

License type:       Permanent

Expiration date:    None - perpetual license

Maintenance until:  26 Nov 2018, serial number MNT-XYZ-1;728996

Capacity:           Unlimited

Version:            16.5

Serial number:      XYZ-1

Build date:         7 May 2018

Your license key will be valid for the 16.5 upgrade if your current product LAK is for version 16.5 or higher and your maintenance is not expired.

If you are running the Free Edition, it will look like this:

* License type:      Graduated

* Expiration date:   None - perpetual license

* Maintenance until: 7 May 2018, serial number MNT-FREE-EDITION-WINNT-24;728996

* Capacity:          10 points (0 in use)

* Product options:   LITEFE

* Scope:             MAXSUB(500),PERLIST

* Version:           16.5

* Serial number:     FREE-EDITION-WINNT

* Build date:        7 May 2018

For the Free Edition, the license key will be valid for the 16.5 upgrade if your current product LAK is for version 16.5 or higher and your maintenance is the same as (or later than) the build date of the copy you are running.

Upgrading LISTSERV is almost as simple as installing it.  Simply follow these steps:

·         For paid copies of LISTSERV Lite:  If you are upgrading from one full version of LISTSERV Lite to another (for instance, from 16.0 to 16.5), you should have received a new LAK from your sales representative.  If you do not have a LAK for the version you are upgrading to, stop right here and contact your L-Soft sales representative. If you are not sure what version you are currently licensed for, send a "SHOW LICENSE" command to LISTSERV.

·         For the LISTSERV Lite Free Edition: Your installation kit will contain an updated LAK which permits you to continue running the Free Edition.

·         If you have received a new LAK, install it onto your old installation, following the instructions that come with the LAK. Send LISTSERV a "SHOW LICENSE" command after restarting LISTSERV to ensure that the new LAK has been installed properly. Do not proceed further until this step has been correctly completed.

·         Back up the entire LISTSERV directory hierarchy (just in case).

·         Stop LISTSERV and SMTPL (note that if you are running the legacy LSMTP MTA, you do not need to stop SMTPL as it should be disabled).

·         Get the current Windows LISTSERV Lite kit from the LISTSERV Lite download page and install it over your existing installation. Your current configuration, lists, and other settings will be preserved.  Note that evaluation kits are production code limited only by an evaluation LAK, which your production LAK will override.

·         If you are running the legacy LSMTP MTA as your mailer, open the Windows Control Panel/Services applet and ensure that the "LISTSERV SMTP Listener" service is disabled.  This is very important!  Note that the current version of the installation GUI will not register SMTPL.EXE as a service if an installation of LSMTP is detected in the Windows registry, but it is still wise to check this.

Note:  While sites with valid licenses for L-Soft's legacy LSMTP mailer may of course continue to use LSMTP for both inbound and outbound mail, L-Soft strongly discourages the use of this discontinued, no longer supported product.  We will be happy to discuss alternatives with you; please simply write to [email protected] and request details.

·         If you have the web archive interface installed, either re-run the web archive configuration feature of SITE.EXE or manually copy WA.EXE from the \LISTSERV\MAIN directory to your cgi-bin or scripts directory to update it. The setup program will not do it for you automatically.

·         Restart LISTSERV and SMTPL (if not running legacy LSMTP) and send a command to make sure the installation was successful.


noteNote:  Some of the examples in this section may show list configuration options which are not available in LISTSERV Lite.

Site administrators can create a new mailing list, including the directories necessary for supporting the archives, in a matter of minutes using the List Creation Wizard. This wizard guides you through a set of questions about the type of list that you want to create.

SUBSCRIBE listname Your Name

7.3 Getting Support

To keep costs to a minimum, we have adopted the following "light weight" maintenance and support structure for the LISTSERV Lite Free Edition:

·         Fixes (usually in the form of level-set releases) will be made available from time to time and can be downloaded at no charge.

·         Technical assistance for the Free Edition will be provided through a special mailing list, [email protected] LISTSERV Lite administrators will be invited to subscribe to the list and share problems and solutions. L-Soft support staff will monitor the list and answer the tougher questions as time permits.

·         L-Soft will accept bug reports from LISTSERV Lite customers – including those using the Free Edition. However, L-Soft may not be able to provide individual answers. Furthermore, L-Soft does not guarantee that all problems will be solved, or that they will be solved in any particular time frame.

·         The L-Soft support helpdesk will not accept calls from LISTSERV Lite Free Edition customers, or from paid LISTSERV Lite customers who did not purchase support. All support inquiries must be directed to the LISTSERV-LITE list, which is monitored by the support staff. Sometimes it may take a while for the support staff to answer these questions, because requests from LISTSERV Classic customers, who pay a yearly support fee, have a higher priority.

·         New full versions, when released, will be made available under the Free Edition license. Technical assistance for older versions will continue to be available for a reasonable period of time on the LISTSERV-LITE mailing list. Fixes will be provided only for the current version.

This approach strikes a balance between making sure that customers are not left out in the cold when a serious problem occurs, and keeping support costs to a reasonable level.

It is possible to purchase maintenance (including full support and upgrades) for LISTSERV Lite.  Please contact your sales representative for details and pricing.
