This is Tornevall Networks main portal

Welcome to the primary portal of Tornevall Networks. This is where information are posted - and the forum can be found. If you're looking for our API configuration portal, take a look at the TorneAUTHv4 site.

What’s going on?

Reaching milestones for SpamAssassin and DNS editor

There are several side projects going on right now. One of the completed “milestones” is the SpamAssassin configurator that was finalized today. For a few hours ago, we’ve started to work on a DNS editor, that makes it possible to update entries into two of our master DNS-servers. This is another milestone as much of the changes today are being made manually with regular zone files. We’ll still go that way, but in a near future, it will be possible to update records live. This work might speed up our DNS Blacklist a bit, which might give us a chance to live update both the primary master server and the second backup without hourly reloading. The DNS API was besides of this not even planned – it was “just a test” to see if it was possible and suddenly, there was an almost complete interface for it in the API.

Any plugins?

Yes, there was recently a minor release of the DNSBL WordPress-plugin also (not a milestone), but the release was too small to set up a whole post for it. But here goes, 2.0.6 gave us one minor update, as we had problems with blacklisted users requesting for delisting in the delisting-page comment fields. Those fields are less checked than the support mailbox, so the patch was based on removing comment abilities in the removal page as an option in the admin configuration.

  • [DNSBLWP-49] – comments_open has a problem that might open for comments again, if other plugins has it disabled

Portals Update

Tornevall Networks are now live with following upgraded platforms:

  • Primary Portal and components
  • AUTHv4
  • DNSBL

Primary portal and components

Site changed to what was supposed to be TornevallWEB v6. As many visitors already seen, we’ve left the API-WEB creation to speed up projects that is more important to fix, than sites that requires too much time and work too finish. Therefore, most of the site is now in the root based on WordPress and all API integrations are being primarily made with this platform. In the same time, we win a community compatible platform. However, WordPress is not the only part built here.

First of all https://tornevall.net has now become https://www.tornevall.com to somehow support a standard webaddress naming. It is used to comunicate news and happenings, whatever that might be. Besides of this, there is a community forum located under https://www.tornevall.com/portal. The purpose with this forum is supposed to be supportive when there are bigger needs of communication. This is still a work that has to be processed a bit more.

The DNSBL removal tool used on this site is currently completely based on WordPress and available for download here. Just remember, to get everything like delisting etc to work, it is important to have an API key (read below).

Things that is built around the portals has a base tracker here.
The WordPress plugin has its own tracker here with the development source code here.

AUTHv4.0

This is a replacement of the less known site AUTHv3, which was supposed to host API based configuration. That project, aswell as the main portal, became too big. So in the same way, this site is built around WordPress. However, the big difference here – compared to the primary above – is that this authentication service also serve other users (meaning, it is possible to register an account there, to get API keys etc). So, to get API keys that handles DNSBL requests, this is the place to be. This service is a frontend gui to APIv3.
