Receive COnnector Anonymous Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello Guys,

     

    This is my senario. 2 HUB servers with TrendMicro IMSS smarthost. All external mails In and Out go via the IMSS Smart Host. 

    I have enabled "Anonymous Users" on the Hub server's Receive connectors. Is this correct configuration or wrong ?

     

    regards

  • I never enable anonymous on the default recieve connectors.  The default connectors have a network scope of all IPs.  I always create a new connector for anonymous connectivity and lock down the IP addresses which can send to it within the configuration.  In your case you can just allow the IP address of the IMSS smarthost.  It will work the way you did it, I just prefer to have more control over what is allowed to connect to my exchange server.

     Of course you can use the same ip address.

  • hello,

     

    You are talking abt, Create new Connector and limit to IMSS Address ? 

     

    Should i need to use different IP Address for receive Connector  ? I heard someone said we cant use same ip address on 2 receive  connectors. 

     

    Regards

  • Yes, create a new receove connector and limit to IMSS address and allow anonymous connectivity.  You do not have to add another IP address.

    That's true - provided the remote IP ranges (or ports) are different
    on the two connectors.
