SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

I need to configure sendmail without DNS on a Fedora 1 box (MY_HOST).
Background: A firewall sends mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (MY_HOST) when certain conditions are met. On MY_HOST, glueware looks at notifier's received mail queue, does some processing, and sends a notification mail to an account at another domain. That domain can be part of a lookup done during processing--I can do without DNS for that piece.
My problem is that I cannot seem to get sendmail to receive that mail from the firewall. tcpdump shows the packets arriving, but nothing apears in notifier's received mail queue. I know how to configure this on HP-UX 11i, but that's an earlier version of sendmail. Fedora 1 is using sendmail-8.12.10-1.1.1.
Entries in /etc/hosts are:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
188.8.131.52 MY_HOST MY_HOST.
184.108.40.206 mail mail.my.domain
a) points to mail.my.domain as the smart relay
/etc/resolv. conf does have an entry for our nameserver.
./etc/nsswitch.conf uses 'files' for hosts, not 'files dns'.
/etc/mail/local-host-names repeats the 220.127.116.11 entry from /etc/hosts, and I've even tried plugging the IP number in here. Which is essentially retarded, but I was completely out of ideas. *Way* out of ideas.
