Well, Stevens' latest edition of UNP is much different than the previous edition I read. Lots of IPV6 stuff. However, there are system calls that Redhat 6.2 doesn't have like getaddrinfo. So I grabbed my Comer/Stevens book. He doesn't actually have a code example for the preforking server, but his code seems to focus in IPV4 stuff. Looks like I'll have to mix and match stuff from both books to get what I want.

I've been looking into serval MTAs. None seem to have the feauture of having the MDA as a shared object. All seem to use IPC or fork the MDA. What I'm looking for is something that loads a shared object and that shared object does the local delivery. This way there is no forking or IPC overhead.

First I need to create a pre-forking server that listens on a socket. Time to pull out my Steven's book.
