TCP_TABLE(5)									     TCP_TABLE(5)

NAME
       tcp_table - Postfix client/server table lookup protocol

SYNOPSIS
       postmap -q "string" tcp:host:port

       postmap -q - tcp:host:port <inputfile

DESCRIPTION
       The  Postfix mail system uses optional tables for address rewriting or mail routing. These
       tables are usually in dbm or db format. Alternatively, table lookups can be directed to	a
       TCP server.

       To find out what types of lookup tables your Postfix system supports use the "postconf -m"
       command.

       To test lookup tables, use the "postmap -q" command as described in the SYNOPSIS above.

PROTOCOL DESCRIPTION
       The TCP map class implements a very simple protocol: the client sends a request,  and  the
       server  sends  one  reply. Requests and replies are sent as one line of ASCII text, termi-
       nated by the ASCII newline character. Request and reply parameters (see below)  are  sepa-
       rated by whitespace.

       Send and receive operations must complete in 100 seconds.

REQUEST FORMAT
       Each request specifies a command, a lookup key, and possibly a lookup result.

       get SPACE key NEWLINE
	      Look up data under the specified key.

       put SPACE key SPACE value NEWLINE
	      This request is currently not implemented.

REPLY FORMAT
       Each  reply  specifies a status code and text. Replies must be no longer than 4096 charac-
       ters including the newline terminator.

       500 SPACE text NEWLINE
	      In case of a lookup request, the requested data does not	exist.	 In  case  of  an
	      update  request,	the  request  was rejected.  The text describes the nature of the
	      problem.

       400 SPACE text NEWLINE
	      This indicates an error condition. The text describes the nature	of  the  problem.
	      The client should retry the request later.

       200 SPACE text NEWLINE
	      The  request  was successful. In the case of a lookup request, the text contains an
	      encoded version of the requested data.

ENCODING
       In request and reply parameters, the character %, each non-printing  character,	and  each
       whitespace character must be replaced by %XX, where XX is the corresponding ASCII hexadec-
       imal character value. The hexadecimal codes can be specified in any  case  (upper,  lower,
       mixed).

       The  Postfix client always encodes a request.  The server may omit the encoding as long as
       the reply is guaranteed to not contain the % or NEWLINE character.

SECURITY
       Do not use TCP lookup tables for security critical purposes.  The client-server connection
       is not protected and the server is not authenticated.

BUGS
       Only the lookup method is currently implemented.

       The client does not hang up when the connection is idle for a long time.
