You're already pretty much done on the Postfix side.

You should be able to run MD as defang under most configurations - there 
are really only a couple of rare cases where it *won't* work.

For CentOS, you should be able to then edit /etc/sysconfig/mimedefang 
(assuming you installed it from a .rpm as well) to set the appropriate 
options to get it to listen on a TCP socket instead of UNIX socket. 
Look for a (probably commented) line that sets the SOCKET variable, and 
put inet:<port>@<ip> for the value.

<ip> should probably be unless you want to run a cluster of 
mail systems against a set of load-balanced MD servers.  <port> can be 
any handy unused port.
