    N5200Pro - System freeze when setting up SMTP notification

    Hello list -
    I was trying to setup the notification section using google's smtp, but the all my systems freeze when I tried to send a Test E-Mail. I have three N5200Pro and I can repeat this on all three boxes.

    When a system freezes, I can still ssh into the box as a sys user and see a list of httpd process running, but any attempt to access with a web browser failed. The only thing I can do as user 'sys' is to issue a reboot command, at that point, everything freeze, including access to the raid system and I must boot from USB to restore defaut settings from the factory_test.sh/firmware combo.

    My "Nofitication Configuration" was as followed:
    Beep Notification Enable
    Email Notification Enable
    SMTP Server smtp.gmail.com
    SMTP Port 465 (instruction came from Google)
    Auth Type: on
    SMTP Account ID: my_name@gmail.com
    Account Password: my_password
    E-Mail From: my_name@gmail.com
    Receivers' Address: my_name@gmail.com


    the system responded normal when you clicked on "Apply". But freeze when I tried the E-Mail Test feature. I assume that my authentication is probably not correct at Google, but my N5200 should time out and returns control back to me or something. What I don't understand is what was causing the system to freeze that I must run factory_test.sh to restore?

    Please help.

    Hi rhumba,

    Did you manage to configure e-mail notifications with Google Mail? I've tried a number of options, but cannot get it to work

    Thanks,
    Denis

    Google Mail requires TLS for authentication, this option is not available via the notification mail option page, but there is a workaround:

    Re: N5200Pro - System freeze when setting up SMTP notification

    Hi peterfu,

    Thank you so much!

    Unfortunately I still cannot get it to work The connection to smtp.google.com time-outs.

    Here is my config:
    Code:
    Email Notification:  Enable 
    SMTP Server: smtp.google.com
    Port: {set by the update to the conf.db - see below}
    Auth Type: plain
    SMTP Account ID: {my google account id}
    Account Password: {my google account password}
    E-Mail From: {my google e-mail}
    Receivers' E-Mail Address: {my google e-mail}
    Here is what happens when I try to update port and then test e-mail notification:
    Code:
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /opt/bin/sqlite /app/cfg/conf.db "update conf set v ='587 --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off' where k='notif_smtport'"
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /img/bin/logevent/event 201
    msmtp: cannot connect to smtp.google.com, port 587: Connection timed out
    msmtp: could not send mail
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /opt/bin/sqlite /app/cfg/conf.db "update conf set v ='465 --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off' where k='notif_smtport'"
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /img/bin/logevent/event 201
    msmtp: cannot connect to smtp.google.com, port 465: Connection timed out
    msmtp: could not send mail
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /opt/bin/sqlite /app/cfg/conf.db "update conf set v ='25 --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off' where k='notif_smtport'"
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /img/bin/logevent/event 201
    msmtp: the server does not support authentication
    msmtp: could not send mail
    I've tested whether smtp.google.com is reachable from my N5200 Pro and it is:
    Code:
    root@127.0.0.1:~# ping smtp.google.com
    PING smtp1.google.com (209.85.237.25): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 209.85.237.25: icmp_seq=0 ttl=237 time=158.4 ms
    64 bytes from 209.85.237.25: icmp_seq=1 ttl=237 time=156.6 ms
    64 bytes from 209.85.237.25: icmp_seq=2 ttl=237 time=151.0 ms
    Any suggestions what else I should try?

    Thanks again!

    I think You have to use smtp.gmail.com - at least this is what the instructions say.

    Doh!! This is not the first time I am making this mistake - had exactly the same problem when configured e-mail on my mobile. Thanks for putting me right, Peter, much appreciate it.

    After trying a number of options I have finally found the one, which works:
    Code:
    Email Notification:  Enable 
    SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
    Port: {set by the update of conf.db to '587 --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off'}
    Auth Type: login
    SMTP Account ID: {my google account id}
    Account Password: {my google account password}
    E-Mail From: {my google e-mail}
    Receivers' E-Mail Address: {my google e-mail}

    Re: N5200Pro - System freeze when setting up SMTP notification

    what command did you issue over ssh ?

    edit* scrap that /opt/bin/sqlite /app/cfg/conf.db "update conf set v ='25 --tls' where k='notif_smtport'" worked fine

    First I configured the above parameters using web interface and specified port as 1. Then I run a command from ssh session to update port value:
    Code:
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /opt/bin/sqlite /app/cfg/conf.db "update conf set v ='587 --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off' where k='notif_smtport'"
    After that I used the following command to test the config:
    Code:
    root@127.0.0.1:~# /img/bin/logevent/event 201
