Adding port to receive connector

Hello there

I'm in the process of upgrading from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 but have hit a problem converting a non-standard SMTP Virtual server to the new receive connector in Exchange 2010.

We have a remote application running on PDAs that sends job reports back via port 8025 in order to bypass our mail-filtering/anti-spam rules.

I have tried to create a new receive connector with type internet and also tried it with custom.  I added the necessary port configurations for 8025, but could not receive via this connector.

I tried telnetting to 8025 and got 'Coukld not open connection to the host, on port 8025: connect failed

I also tried adding this port to the default connector and again could not connect on port 8025.  I can telnet to port 25 OK.

How do I setup my Exchange 2010 Hub Transport to accept e-mails on port 8025?

Thanks

Paul

Have you tried opening port 8025 in the firewall or turning off the firewall completely to determine if that is the problem?

Port 8025 is already open as it forwards onto our Exch2003 server, when forwarding to our new Exch2010 server it doesn't work, so I assume that the firewall config is all OK as it works fine on Exch2003.

Apologies, when you said 'firewall' I assume you meant my perimeter firewall, not the Windows firewall!  I unblocked port 8025 on the server Windows firewall and all OK now.

Thanks
