The Question is:
I have a VMS microvax sending a report from a private network to a Lotus Notes
server using SMTP.
A Netbuilder filter has been installed between the microvax and the mail
server, and the reports have stopped. If the notes server is added to the
netbuilder the mail will send from the systems and work, so I am assuming a
handshake is required for SMTP.
Will this also enable the VMS systems to receive mail in from the network the
otherside of the netbuilder where the notes server is situated. If so, how
can I stop this.
The Answer is :
Please work with the organization supporting the firewall -- with this
"netbuilder filter" package -- to resolve this network communications
problem. This would appear to be either a routing problem resulting
from the addition of the firewall, or a problem with the configuration
of the firewall itself and particularly with the traffic allowed to
traverse the firewall.
