Setting Up Email Server Using Personal Domain Name?
Sep 5, 2011
I've recently purchased a domain name from GoDaddy, and I'm having trouble setting up my server, which is running Windows Server 2003, to run email using the domain name. Before purchasing, I was using a free domain from DynDNS and it worked using it as an domain address. I'm wondering if maybe I have to set up the DNS on GoDaddy to foward the email protocol to my server.
I am running a zyxel nsa-325 series Network Storage device with 6 TBs of HD space. This NAS has a Linux kernel and 512mg of DDRIII ram. It is also running a Polkast personal cloud application that enables access to all the files through a simple UI rather than having to use FTP server login credentials (which I have also set-up).My home office is set up with Frontier as the ISP and they provide a locked down router/modem that you are not "supposed" to replace. It is made by speedstream and does not allow editing of the dns server or anything else that would be considered needed.I have set it up as the primary router with an ip range of 192.168.0.1 with a subnet of 250.250.250.0..I have several devices (printers, PC's etc plugged into this device via lan.Wireless broadcast and access is disabled...
My primary router is a Sapido 5000 series Gigabit router.I have this router broadcasting a wirelessB/G/N siganl for mobile devices to connect to. The NAS that I opened the thread with is plugged into this router via lan (Cat7).The Ip range of this router is set at 192.168.1.1 with a subnet of 250.250.250.0.All devices on the sapido router have access to the internet, as well as the services of the first router (networked printers, and speedstream router login for admin if needed).I can access the Zyxel NAS (192.168.1.104) from the PCs (192.168.0.2) connected to the speedstream, as well as the mobile devices and laptops (192.168.1.110-150) connected to the sapido.I have installed polkast which is an application that runs in the background on the NAS. It allows web access to all of the files (work docs, multi-media, ebooks, iso files, batch files for utilities etc. from a cell phone, tablet, pc, laptop, any device I want. I should be able to access the files from the web and also on the local WLAN to allow file transfers from the NAS to the device in seconds..When I am on the WLAN I can copy/stream a video file that is approximately 1GB in seconds. However, When I am on 3g 4g or at another location I do not have access. Polkast has simply said that I have an incorrect network configuration. I have confirmed that allk the Polkast side settings are fine and their user support has also confirmed that everything is as it should be. So they insist that the problem lies with my 2 routers. Their suggestion was to go back to using 1 router (HeeHee). I can RDP into any computer on my network from anywhere in the world. So the configurations seem fine. I also have FTP access to the NAS so I believe the ports are all forwarded correctly.
in my house we currently have a ps3, 2 xbox's, a wii, 4 iphones, 2 pc's, a laptop, an apple tv, and 2 android tablets running off one internet connection. In my room, i have my PC, my xbox, and my apple tv. as you can imagine, my internet is painfully slow, although we have the fastest available from our provide (7mb per second i believe) running wired is fine but theres no way of me being able to do that. How could i go about setting up a second private network for my devices only? i would want to run my apple tv, pc, phone and xbox off of connection. without it being as painfully slow as my home network. i was thinking perhaps an airport extreme, and running it off of my router.
I have a question about NAT behavior on FWSM 4.0. The problem is email server (Company A) cannot connect to email gateway (Company B) on the outside network and it randomly happen. I got this error from server guy "Detail: xlate has blocked the connection between A’s mail gateway and B’s mail gateway". It work fine again after clear xlate on firewall. [code]
1. How FWSM create xlate table like that? I mean it look like NAT0 for 188.8.131.52 but it doesn't has any nat rule for 184.108.40.206 on firewall.
2. What does it mean "connections 24" at the first of line? In the normal time, I only see the connections is 0 like the second line of xlate
3. After clear xlate global 220.127.116.11, the first line of xlate table is gone then email server can connect each other. Does is a bug on FWSM? or This is a normal NAT behavior of FWSM.
The animation school I work for is going to change names soon. The website already reflects the name change. The CEO wants all current emails changed to fall in with the proposed change as well as changing the school domain. Currently the system works fine as it is and I am of the opinion that changing the internal domain name space will have no effect whatsoever on people outside of the organisation. If there is no need to change things, then possibly re-directing emails internally would mean minimum fuss to daily operations within the school. Has anybody found themselves in a similar position and what was the outcome?
I have been trying to setup my DIR-655 A4 (Firmware 1.34NA) router to send me email notifications on new firmwares, when the log is full and every Saturday. So I have a schedule already created for sending the emails on Saturday and I also have the option to send notification of new firmware checked. Now I have settings, similar to the following, under email settings.
setting up the email notifications. I need the log emailed to me during a certain time of the day and it wont email anything. Even when I am in the log and push the email now, it does nothing. I've tried setting it up through hotmail, lmsn live, and gmail. None of them work. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do?
I have installed cisco lms4.1, seems to berest all working fine. But am not finding a option to enable email seetings options to send reports. I have already set smtp servers, through whihc threshold alerts are trigering, but am unavle get best practice reports. as per document, email setting option is available under Reports>reports settings. But I cant see email setting option under report setting, only 'set report path' is available.
i've been using a VPN to connect to my home network from elsewhere for a few months. It's set up as follows:
PPTP Maximum Strength Encryption EAP-MSCHAP-v2 Authentication
Now I find out that MSCHAPv2 authentication has been broken and is no longer considered secure (even by Microsoft), so I want to change the protocol I'm using to make it secure.
However, I've spent 3 hours now researching this and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use a better protocol on my Windows Server 2012 home server. I've tried setting up PEAP authentication (still PPTP) a la Microsoft's recommendation document, but it requires a certificate. I've created a self-signed certificate but it seems I can't issue certificates (via this method) without being a member of a domain, so I'm stuck. I can't even get started with L2TP since I can't find the option for it.
My question is this: Is there a way to setup a secure VPN server using Windows Server 2012 without a domain? If so, how do I do this?
Up to this point, all the computers on the network accessed the e-mail server via the Windows name of the PC running the e-mail server. However, one of the PCs will need to access e-mail from the WAN soon as opposed to the LAN, so I switched the server name in Thunderbird (e-mail client) to the actually fully qualified domain name of the server (registered at NO-IP, which redirects to the e-mail server at home).
The problem I am running into is that all the requests sent for IMAP or SMTP are being blocked by the router. That's even though I added port forwarding rules for them. The logs show messages similar to the following:
"Blocked incoming TCP connection request from 18.104.22.168:51291 to 22.214.171.124:143"
It doesn't make a difference if I change the endpoint filtering to "Endpoint Independent" either. Any thoughts of what else I can try? DMZ is not an option.
I do not have wireless internet access and I get the message "There may be a problem with your Domain Name Server (DNS) configuration" when I try to diagnose the problem.I am on the internet by bypassing the router and having a wired connection from the modem to the computer right now. The problem started when I tried to get a second computer to work with the wireless connection (so with the computer I'm on right now, wireless worked a few days ago). [code]
Do I create an SMTP Network Object and send TCP traffic throught NAT?
Or do I go to the ASDM's Configuration/Firewall, choose Public Servers, and choose Private Interface=inside, Public Interface=outside, set the private/public IPs, and choose SMTP as the service? This seems much simpler, but is it the correct way to do it?
I am using ASDM 6.4(5) and would like to use that versus the CLI.
One of my customers uses Comcast email and all of a sudden couldn't send messages the other day, telling me it was giving her an error. She said that she reset her router, and the email started working again.When I finally got over there to check it out, the email had started experiencing problems again. The error she was having was Error 550: Message Rejected (when trying to send email). There didn't appear to be any issues with her internet connection, and she wasn't having issues connecting to the email server, it was simply rejecting her messages.
I told her that she would have to contact Comcast, as there was really nothing I could do to fix their email server returning an error. She wasn't too happy, and remained convinced that her router had something to do with it. It's a Netgear WNDR3700 or WNDR3800 that I setup for her last year, it's a fine router.Has anyone ever had a Comcast email server randomly start rejecting messages? I noticed that her outgoing email was set to use port 587 which seems like a nonstandard port and also no authentication, but I have no idea what the Comcast email settings are supposed to be.
1. my email going out is working along with internal, but inbound email is not working. My barracuda email filter is 192.168.1.107 and my exchange 2007 is 192.168.1.222 along with this OWA does not work.
2. Terminal Services does not work when I try from the home pc in I get server not available or disconnected

I am wanting to setup a small network at home. I am using Server 2008r2 64 bit running on VMWorkstation, which is the only way I can run a 64bit OS. I have it installed and running on VM with active directory and a domain created. My problem is trying to join the domain with my other PC's. They cannot find the domain name. The network connection on the VM is set to NAT.
I have a 891 router setup as the local DNS server and external lookups from connected devices (and the router cli) work fine. I'm having problems getting internal host lookups working though.
this is relevent part of the config, router ip address is 192.168.100.9:
no ip dhcp use vrf connected ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.100.1
If I put rearswitch. (i.e. add a single full stop at the end of the hostname) it resolves fine. The same behaviour happens with other hosts defined with the ip host command. Is it possible to use local hostnames without a domain name or full stop?
I'm hosting my email on an Exchange Server 2003 box and have my laptop (Vista Ultimate 32 bit) setup to connect to the exchange server for my email. This works fine through a LinkSys RV042 in one location and a LinkSys WRT54GC in another, but fails through the DIR-615 B2 (2.24 firmware) at home. I'm guessing it's blocking something needed for the MAPI connection.
i have been trying share a folder across the network but with a lot of difficulty.the folder is on a server 2008R2 on one domain while the work stations are on a work group. how do i get the work station to access the shared folder without any password issues.
I have a Cisco 881W configured for wireless (just a PSK, nothing special). I can get out to the Internet OK and browse to everywhere except my own websites.
It runs on a connection that does not connect directly to my network, but our website is available to the world externally.
Now, from the router a traceroute and ping work fine to our website but from the wireless connection I can get to everywhere else on the web but our website. A traceroute just stars out. I'm using 126.96.36.199 as a DNS server and nslookup resolves the DNS.
I can't set a DNS server or domain server on the ap on the 881W so are there any commands I can use to see what's going on?
Just installed a RV042 with dual wan connections. Would like to make the WAN 2 (new cable modem as well) the primary connection over WAN1 (DSL), however whenever I switch from WAN1 to WAN2 in Smark Link set up, our email server will not send mail out, even though nothing is blocking the connection.
Differences between using an Apache server on a regular laptop vs. a whole operating system like Windows Server 2008. I'd like to setup an intranet complete with an internal domain name. Is this possible with Apache or do you have to use a complete server operating system like Windows server 2008?
I can't seem to get the browser to properly show spacing.So I was browsing the internet normally, then all of the sudden, I'm disconnected. When I reconnected, I was able to access the network, but unable to connect to the internet. After attempting to diagnose the issue, I got the "There may be a problem with your Domain Name Server Configuration."can't connect to well known host microsoft.com.
We had a power outage that kicked off our server and our network switch (2008R2, Cisco2960), before we could get it back up, a user was able to log into his laptop.
The user used the domain login - not the local machine account - he obviously wasn't able to access any shared resources, but how did he log in with a domain account, when the server and switch were both off?
