    hello,

    i have a problem with one from our servers. we are listed since more than one week in the sorbs (http://www.dnsbl.sorbs.net/) list. firstly i thought, one of our customer has send out some spam...but badly we never get a message from sorbs on our abuse contact.

    so i mailed the isp support of sorbs and became the following answer:
    Code:
    The problem is an EntropyChat server....
    
    Trying 217.26.52.31...
    Connected to 217.26.52.31.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET /alya.cgi HTTP/1.0
    
    HTTP/1.0 200 OK
    Server: EntropyChat 0.2.5
    Cache-Control: no-cache
    X-Author: bdraco@darkorb.net
    Pragma: no-cache

    Connection closed by foreign host.
    
    This is non RFC complient.
    
    so i wrote them back, that entropy chat is running on port 2084 as a standard of cpanel hosting software and if he listed us in sorbs they have to list thousands of other hosts who use cpanel because they are also not rfc complient.


    this morning i get another answer from sorbs:
    Code:
    We have had a few listings - our stance is we will list hosts that
    trigger our tests if they are RFC non-complient.  So far this stance has
    had a few people complain to the EntropyChat writers and they haven't
    complained to us since, so we have to assume they have some sort of fix.
    
    Personally I think the response should be either:
    
    HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found
    
    or 
    
    HTTP/1.0 302 Moved permanently
    
    or even
    
    HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required
    
    In all cases there is nothing wrong with returning the login page or the
    start page as the content - the important thing is the status code is
    correct - it indicates that /alya.cgi doesn't exist there.
    
    is this problem known or are there other isps who has the same problem with sorbs like this?

    thanks for some answers and greets

    If you are not using entropychat you could just disable it in service manager. I prefer not to leave anything enabled which I don't use. (this doesn't mean bugs shouldn't be fixed ofcourse :) )

    thanks for your reply!

    i just disabled the entropy chat. i hope now we will be delisted from sorbs.

    but are there other isp who hase the same problems?
    because i think, sorbs shoulnd't tell us whats rfc complient and whats not. this is too much! the should only list and bann servers who send out spam.

    cheers
