Paranoid Bridge / Argosoft MailServer Can't Save

Postby Matt Weinbender » Tue Sep 15, 2009 8:03 pm

Hi, I have Paranoid working successfully with my old server and, but I'm transitioning away from that server to a new one. The new one has Win2003 server, 64 bit. I copied the DLL to the Argosoft program folder and went into plugins area and entered:
Assembly Name: Paranoid.Bridge
Class Name: Paranoid.Bridge.PlugIn

Hit ok and the entry is not saved and there's no error. I'm confused.

Any help is appreciated.

Paranoid does not work with 64bit.

If you look at the Product page for Paranoid you would notice: http://www.sssolutions.net/paranoid/
Platforms 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 (except x64)

Alex will have to chime in and let you know if there will be a fix or an update for 64bit version.

Shoot! I missed that. Has anyone found a workaround?

Unfortunately, it's still impossible.

Are there plans to recompile & distribute a version that works in 64 bit?

Or, is there an alternative product that would work as well? Would Mail Filter or eWall work? Or do I need Paranoid to handle the spam detection to work with those products?

Thanks.

MailFilter won't work also on 64bit machines, but you still can use eWall + Paranoid there.

Not sure I'm clear on that... How is it that Paranoid will work with eWall in that environment if Paranoid is restricted to 32 bit?

The only part that doesn't work on 64bit is ParanoidEx.dll, that ArGo can't plug in because it's 32bit dll. The Paranoid service works OK and accessible from any other Paranoid client.

Ok, can you explain the architecture a bit? How does it with with the ArgoSoft mail server?
Thanks.

Paranoid is a SMTP-like service, that accepts message (or link at message file) and returns scanning result. There could be many clients that uses Paranoid service. ParanoidEx.dll is one of them. This client is built as extension for ArGoSoft Mail Server. Unfortunately, I can't build 64bit DLL with development environment I use, so ArGo's .NET environment denies it. eWall itself is a 32bit application too and uses Paranoid service via Paranoid COM library.
