Install Winrar Linux from Source

1 min read

Hi Dude, today install winrar on linux from source tar ball. By default linux distro installation not bundling with WinRAR. WinRAR is tool for compress and packaging folder that not free. There is a license that must be paid to get the full version (not trial) of WinRAR. Version open source is zip, tgz, tar.

In managing mail servers or smtp servers sometimes we get email attachments with the extension .rar, the mail server cannot check or scan the contents of the .rar file. That’s why we need to install WinRAR to be able to extract and the mail server can check the contents of the attachetn .rar. In order to be detected the contents of the .rar attachment contain malware, dangerous or safe files.
