CommuniGate Pro on NetBSD

Those are quick notes on how to run the CommuniGate Systems (Community Edition) on a NetBSD/xen domU.

Quoting the Web site CommuniGate Pro Community Edition for SOHO, Home Users & Developers:

I’m going to install the NetBSD (2.0 only available) edition in a netbsd-5 domU with NetBSD 2.0 Compatibility.

Install NetBSD 5 domU.

Have the NetBSD 3 compatibility package (emulators/compat30) extracted somewhere.

Install the package:

# pkg_add -f CGatePro-NetBSD-Intel.tgz

pkg_add: Warning: package `CGatePro-5.2.16′ was built for a platform:
pkg_add: NetBSD/ i386 2.0 (pkg) vs. NetBSD/i386 5.0_STABLE (this host)
Executing ‘chmod 2555 ‘/usr/pkg’/CommuniGate/mail’
Executing ‘chmod 2555 ‘/usr/pkg’/CommuniGate/sendmail’
Executing ‘chmod 2555 ‘/usr/pkg’/CommuniGate/CGServer’
Executing ‘ln -s ‘/usr/pkg’/CommuniGate/mail /usr/bin/cgmail’

[ Congratulations and welcome to the CommuniGate Pro – ]
[ The Integrated Communication System. ]
[===========================================================================]

The CommuniGate Pro software is installed in
/usr/pkg/CommuniGate

By default, the CommuniGate Pro will keep all its data files in
/var/CommuniGate.

If you want to change these locations, modify the startup script
/etc/rc.d/CommuniGate

If you were running a legacy mail application – sendmail, qmail, etc. –
you will need to disable those applications, so they won’t interfere with
the CommuniGate Pro server.

On the first start the CommuniGate Pro server should create several folders
in the /var/CommuniGate directory. The postmaster password is located in
/var/CommuniGate/Accounts/postmaster.macnt/account.setting
Find that password, and use it to connect to the server WebAdmin Interface.

Direct your browser to http://yourdomain.com:8010 and log in as postmaster.

See for details.
