SBS 2008 running exchange 2007 SMTP issue.

I have a SBS server running exchange 2007. We just purchased a all in one Printer scanner that has email built in. The config is asking for the server ip address but not able to send the mail. The printer sends the email but gets a time out error.

All email works fine so I dont know if I have to add another hub transport to handle this printer?

Try after adding the IP of the printer to your Hub Transport's 'receive connector's' allow list.

There are two receive connector first one FQDN is second is SBS.twist.local so do i add it to both? The server was setup by another person before me.

Those are examples.

Also there is a list for local ip and remote. Do I add it only to remote?

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Add it to local. Receive connector should list port 25 with the FQDN. Assuming the printer has a local/private IP. Give exchange some time to update its config and try.

OK great that is what I did.

OK we let the exchange server sit all weekend after giving it the IP of the printer. Printer is still getting a timeout error when sending the email. Should the server be rebooted? Also just to make sure it is exchange 2007 and does it need a different connector configured?

The error is the smtp server timed out. The smtp server returned an error when trying to connect.The destination is not correct. An error occurred on the server side trying to connect to a file server.

OK under the Organization Send connectors I have one. windows SBS internet Send SBS enabled.

Under Server configuration I have Two listed, windows SBS internet receive SBS enabled. And second is Default SBS that has the ip I added
to local.

Am I missing something? Seems like we would need a send connector also on port 25 under Organization Configuration Hub transport?

OK well it was a firewall issue.
