Win2000 Server: Internet Email Server, how know if using & Port Forwarding?
Posted on 2003-10-29
I am extremely new to Win 2000 server. I've started doing some support work for someone who has a Win 2000 Server. I know very liitle about the server and no one else there does either (their IT person left). They are switching over their BellSouth DSL internet service to Spirit Telecom DSL. They told the Spirit Telecom rep. to call me about any questions he had in order to get them set up. Here's one question he asked me:
1.) Are they using an Internet Email Server and does it use Port Forwarding. If yes, about the Email Server, then Port Forwarding will have to enabled, also if yes they need to know the Internet IP address?
a.) How do I find out if Internet Email Server is being used? Is this something that is built into Win 2000 Server. I always thought that you had to have a separate program like Exchange?
b.) What is Port Forwarding and how is it enabled?
c.) I take it their is probably a static IP address if they are using an INternet Email Server. What's the best way to find this out.
I am a real novice when it comes to Win2000 Server, as you can probably tell by my question :-).
Thanks for your help
