Created a client-server model including 2 virtual boxes (Box1 and Box2) to replicate the MediaWiki server side.[edit]

MediaWiki Test Environment

Box1:-

  • Running Ubuntu Precise. (IP 10.0.3.40)
  • MediaWiki Core running at 10.0.3.40:80
  • DNS server configured as Box2 ( 10.0.3.1 )
  • MW MediaWiki SMTP settings configured with host => 'mchenry.wikimedia.org'
  • Initiate all mail requests.

Box2:-

  • Running Ubuntu Server Edition. ( IP 10.0.3.1 )
  • bind9 installed to work as DNS server for box1
  • eth0 - connected to NAT ( IP 10.0.2.25 )
  • eth1 - connected to internal n/w ( IP 10.0.3.1 )
  • have exim4, postfix-pcre, alpine, mutt installed.
  • have IPv4 routing enabled, IPTABLES and postfix configured so as to intercept any packets sent from box1, and redirect to /var/mail/root
  • HTTP, HTTPS and SSH ports forwarded from Host PC.

Tested the setup by accessing MW Core on 10.0.3.40:80 from host machine (after port forwarding).
Tested the email settings by originating emails from Box1 to remote address. It got redirected to /var/mail of Box2.
