I have installed a Vmware Workstation 7.1.3 build-324285 on a Lenovo Laptop. The laptop has a Windows 7 64bit software.
I have created a virtual machine in Vmware and installed a Windows Server 2003 SP2 standard with all the updates, configured it to be a Domain Controller, DNS server. Everything was promising. Later on I installed the Exchange Server 2003 with SP1 and SP2 on the earlier created Windows Server 2003 system. I have opened up the ports 445, 110,25 and pointed it to the Exchange 2003 network card's IP.
I have tried to test it out with https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/
. First I have tried with the inbound and outbound test at the bottom of the page. Was successfull. After that I have tried to configure Active Sync on my iPhone4 but there was an error „mailbox is not reachable”.
I have scanned my IP address for opened ports and the results was: 110, 25 but I have opened the 443 as well. I don’t understand. I know this is what causing the problem in Active Sync also.
I have configured vmware’s virtual network editor to „VMNet0” auto-bridging and set it up in my virtual machine.
Is that a problem that I have dinamic IP from provider ? (even if I get back the same address all the time!!)
I set up outlook client on Vmware’s host „Windows 7 64-bit” machine for POP3. I can receive e-mails very fast, but If I try to reply looks good on sending out but the outbox remains empty and the e-mail never arrives, no error returns.
What could cause this problem?
