@BenjiWiebe: That would be true for Linux. But this is OpenBSD. If you really want to turn it off properly in the current version of OpenBSD (5.9) edit the file: /etc/rc.conf Look for the line that starts with smtpd_flags and change it to say: smtpd_flags=NO You should not do this since the system mails reports of the system's health daily. You will save ...

from rcctl(8) manual page: The recommended way to run a second copy of a given daemon for a different purpose is to create a symbolic link to its rc.d(8) control script: # ln -s /etc/rc.d/snmpd /etc/rc.d/snmpd6 # rcctl set snmpd6 status on # rcctl set snmpd6 flags -D addr=2001:db8::1234 # rcctl start snmpd6

The netmask and default gateway address I took from my Windows computer which is on the same network. Have you tried using DHCP instead? For example: $ cat /etc/hostname.iwi0 dhcp NONE NONE NONE nwid id wpakey passphrase The route show ...

Just my 2 cents... It is more than true that spinning down the disks decreases their service life. Years of experience have shown that starting and stopping the disk motor causes far more fatigue than 24/7 spin. All my disks with big start/stop count have reallocated sectors and all my disks that spin 10 years 24/7 are (believe it or not) good as new. After ...

Great question! OpenBSD's newly written httpd is not a fully-featured web-server, and nor is it intended to be. As for relayd, which was the precursor to httpd, I do not believe that it has any ability to do what you require, either. The best general-purpose replacement for Apache bar none is still nginx. It is readily available in the OpenBSD ports tree ...
