Hello,

We have an old piece of PLC equipment in a remote network that needs to send alerts if the temperature is exceeded.  This device has the ability to send e-mail but only via unauthenticated smtp.

Is there a way to use Stunnel or something similar to act as a authentication layer from this this network workstation running xp?  

Thank you for any software recommendations.

You can create a tunnel/vpn with this workstation and your monitoring station/server can collect the snmp poll data through the vpn...... use the XP inbuilt pptp/l2tp capability for vpn.

You can refer to any website in google for setting up l2tp or pptp in XP.

Best,

We are actually wanting to send SMTP not SNMP data.  We are just looking for a way to send e-mail alerts from a google SMTP server but the device does not allow for any user authentication.  We need to relay this e-mail but using something such as Stunnel.

Let me know if you have any recommendations.
