controlchan - channel-fed control message handler
Controlchan removes the responsibility for handling control messages (except cancels) from
innd(8) and instead processes them from a channel or file feed. To reduce load, con-
trolchan keeps a copy of control.ctl(5) in memory and checks permissions (including any
required PGP headers) before any scripts are called. Also, the default (``bad message'')
case is handled internally. The ``drop'' case is handled with far less fuss.
Normally, controlchan is configured in newsfeeds(5) and invoked from innd(8). And you
need to set <usecontrolchan in inn.conf> to ``true''. Controlchan reports all log message
through syslog(3), if possible. To enable syslog(3)'ging, you will need to have run
``h2ph'' on your system include files at some point (this is required to make ``Sys::Sys-
log'' work). If you have not done so, do this:
h2ph * sys/*
If you run FreeBSD, you will need to run the following in addition:
