Hello Experts!

I created additional receive connector on port 587 on my Exchange 2013 SP1.
Trying to test it using telnet and this is what I'm having:

421 4.3.2 Service not available

Connection to host lost.  

I restarted Transports service but the situation remains the same.

Any ideas will be highly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,

you are testing this internally or via internet? If via internet, have you reconfigured router to NAT this new port to Exchange and FW on it as well?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi pomah1.....

 If the SMTP Receive protocol log on the Hub Transport server shows exactly the exact message:

>421 4.3.2 Service not available, closing transmission channel

>Connection to host lost.
 
That's good. At least it shows that the 421 status originated from
that HT role.
 
Is it safe to assume that the receive connector isn't configured to be
used as an anonymous SMTP relay? Or is it usable for that purpose?
 
Do you have multiple addresses in the remote-ip ranges on the
connector? What about authentication methods? Permissions?
 
get-receiveconnector <connectrorname>|fl
RemoteIPRanges,AuthMechanism,PermissionGroups
 
The fact that a simple telnet to port 25 from within the local site
works but a try from outside the AD site fails sure sounds like an IP
range restriction problem (assuming the two sites are in different
networks).

 Hope this will work.
Thanks.

Yes that was actually IP address restriction on the connector itself.
