Re: Exchange Server 2000 and Cisco Pix

I don't see why you should have to disable the smtp fixup -- we were
running exchange and exchange clients on 2000 with no problems. 

Although this is probably yet another case of M$ forcing you to lower
security so that their software runs.

The command on the pix to disable it is:

        no fixup smtp

--john

Hello wizards,

I have a newly installed Exchange Server 2000 behind
my Pix and did receive an error from a mail client
when trying to connect to the Exchange server.
Microsoft refers to Cisco without really being
specific - at least I could not find the solution at
Cisco's web page. Anyone here knows what I have to do?

Here's MS solution (Article ID: Q295164) for the
problem:

"RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, disable SMTP inspection on the
firewall. If you do not know the command to disable
SMTP inspection, contact Cisco." 

Is this the fixup command I have to use and disable
smtp? 

Thanks for your help in advance!

C.
