Hi everyone,

I just got a project and I need help.  I recently install two servers, one is my DC and the other is an exchange.  Everything is workin, so now I need to configure the exchange server to retrieve and send email from the company.  I have read most of the forum and found that you need to open port 25 and then call your ISP to forward your xm record to your public IP.  Also that you need to nate your public IP to your Internal IP.  Now my situation is that I do not have Nate on my Linksys router, what can I do to get the exchange server to work?

If you can give me a step by step to configure the email server, thank you.

Unless you have a special, never released to anyone else, unique router, your Linksys Router will have NAT.
It will probably be called port forwarding or something like that, but the device will be doing NAT.

Thank you Simon for responding so quick.  I do have port forwarding, but how do I set that up?

Linksys provide an instruction CD with their products, and make the user guide available for download on their web site. This isn't really the right place for highly detailed instructions on setting up a router. If you don't know how to configure your router, may I suggest that you post a question in the networking topic area.
