I'm running a Netgear firewall router FVS318 to connect a small LAN via DSL to the internet. This router offers a feature to send the logfile every hour/day to a specified mail address. Because my ISP's SMTP server needs authentication and the Netgear router is not able to send ESMTP I want to use a local Windows 2000 server with enabled SMTP service as SMTP server.
I've configured the router with IP 10.1.2.18 and the SMTP server with IP 10.1.2.3. When I use blat.exe to send an email it will be delivered successful. But when the router tries to send a mail it won't be delivered. I even can't find this mail in any of the c:\inetpub\mailroot subfolders. In the IIS logfile the following lines do appear for each attempt of the router to send a mail:
10.1.2.18, FVS318, 16:40:06, SMTPSVC1, SRVAPP01, 10.1.2.3, 0, 30, 47, 250, 0, HELO, -, +FVS318.xxx.domain.com,
10.1.2.18, FVS318, 16:40:06, SMTPSVC1, SRVAPP01, 10.1.2.3, 10, 32, 45, 250, 0, MAIL, -, +FROM:<email@example.com>,
10.1.2.18, FVS318, 16:40:06, SMTPSVC1, SRVAPP01, 10.1.2.3, 0, 30, 33, 250, 0, RCPT, -, +TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org>,
10.1.2.18, FVS318, 16:41:08, SMTPSVC1, SRVAPP01, 10.1.2.3, 61789, 30, 33, 240, 61839, QUIT, -, FVS318.xxx.domain.com
Please help me to find the proper configuration for IIS SMTP service!
