exchange 2010 all in one box, internet connection


I have just finished installing exchange 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.
This is an "all in one box".  This will be a standalone server that will need to handle the internet email that come to my office.

I can't seem to remember how to connect it to the internet, I know that I need to enable somewhere the "anonymous" access in order to send traffic to the internet.  

Any guidance on how to send traffic to the internet will be appreciated.

Thank you

on your router, you need to manage ports.  And allow access for TCP via the ports your using (depends on the services you are allowing, Exchange (443?), IMAP, POP3, etc...)
you need to give smpt inbound/outbound access to this server using your firewall . also DNS should be available for domain name resolving .

You also need to configure proper send and receive connectors. other wise it won't do anything.

Hi Hpdvs2, thanks for the feedback, I will take that in consideration.
I think I got it, I had to create a send connector on my Transport Concentrator with an " * "

Best regards!

I didn't have the receive connector enabled, just saw your post.
How do I find that?
Receive connector can be found in EMC under Server Confi in HUB role

Or Exchange Shell with

I Appreciate your time and help.  Do I need to create a new "Receive connector" or do I just need enable anonymous on the "Default" Connector?
Hello.... Anyone on the anonymous for the "Default connector" :-)
Yes you need to enable Anonymous on the Default receive connector
