smtp connection behind WG?
I have two apps which want to send email and were working fine; but which are now behind a WG Firebox.
One is a simple backup program on my trusted segment, and for error and stats events it sends emails to an admin contact.
Before I had it setup to use: smtp-mail-outlook.com:587
which is commonly recommended for an smtp server. It requires user/password authentication, but all worked fine.
Now it is failing, and i am presuming it is because some of the traffic is blocked - it reports "invalid permission".(?)
The other application is a Linux server on my DMZ segment, where again I need to connect to an smtp mail-server to be able to send out email.
I tried the same server - and it fails - "Network unreachable".
I can ping that address from either segment.
(although it resolves to svc.ha-smtp.live.com (184.108.40.206))
Any hints or advice please.
