WSS 3.0 Alerts not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am new to sharepoint so excuse my ignorance but we have a 2003 server with WSS running on it and up until a couple of months ago alerts were working fine but I have just been informed that they no longer work.

    Having checked sharepoint central admin, the immediate alerts job is sitting at initialized 0%.

    I have looked at various web sites but have had no luck so far.

    Thanks in advance

  • Vishwas,

    Sorry, been away for a week, got it sorted by the following

    I had to install the Windows SDK so I could run a utility called sporder.exe.  Sophos had worked it's way to the top of the Windows Sockets.  I moved TCP and UDP to the top.

    All alerts are now working.
