Can't connect to SMTP server through Telnet
Posted on 2006-10-25
I have small business server 2003. I can't connect to smtp server from any computer in the office. When I try to connect from mine I type in - telnet test.com 25, and it hangs for 5 seconds and then says Connection to host lost. I took a look at our Netgear firewall settings, and in Ports section there is an entry that always allows connections on 25 port for Any WAN user. However, after I try to conenct from my PC in the firewall security logs it says - Wed, 10/24/2006 08:53:08 - 25 dropped - Source: 192.168.1.136 (my IP), 3403, LAN - Destination: 188.8.131.52 (IP of where I'm trying to connect), 25, LAN
Anyone has an idea how to fix this?
