first sorry my poor english, still keep trying ....
i've a strange problem with KWF:
first, we have a very specific internet solution:
we have adsl-modem connected with lan-cable to lan-card.
our provider uses a vpn-tunnel between the adsl modem (10.0.0.38) and the lan-card (10.0.0.140).
that means, i've a VPN connection in network neighbourhood.
i created standard rules with the wizard.
and now the problem:
everything seems to work fine: http, pop3 ....
but NOT smtp: netstat shows an an established connection, but mails (outlook 2003 and outlook 2007) are not sent.
if i trie telnet smtp.server on port 25, i can send commands like 'helo' and 'bye'.
also, one http connection DOES NOT work (bank: https login ok, i can navigated to my bank account, but can not view any details.
after this, i installed outlook 2007 diretly on the dedicated firewall pc.
also running xp, smtp works fine !!!
next, we connected a laptop running vista.
outlook 2003: no problems with smtp !!!
i also have to admit: the computer with the problem running xp is newly installed (we did a new installation yesterday) and with all ms-service packs and ms-windows-updates.
in the kerio logs we have seen (don't know if this is affected to our problem):
3-way handshakte errors, i do not know anything about this ....
(looking inside this error messages, it looks like there is a problem with ip-adresses:
e.g. the smtp server of the provider is 10.11.12.13,
the 3-way handshake error is affected to host 10.11.12.17 which belongs to the provider, but is no smtp server)
thanks for help
strange, strange ...
i did some more test, here are the results:
220 smarthub80.highway.telekom.at ESMTP
502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)
RCPT TO: Benutzer<.a.t.>Domaene.DE
502 unimplemented (#5.5.1)
354 go ahead punk, make my day
250 ok 1174937085 qp 21580 by smarthub80.highway.telekom.at
221 smarthub80.highway.telekom.at Goodbye.
Verbindung zu Host verloren.
as you can see, telnet to smtp.server on port 25 works fine.
also, i downloaded & installed TCPVIEW from www.sysinternals.com (now owned by MS):
if i go to accounts, and then "check account", pop3 and smtp is ok and the connections are shown up in TCPVIEW.
if i'm sending a (test-)email using outlook there are NO CONNECTIONS in TCPVIEW ?!?!?!?!?
am i blind or what is wrong???
Create a dedicated traffic rule for the SMTP traffic. Enable packed logging for that traffic rule. Make sure the dedicated traffic rule is above some other rule that allows SMTP.
Try to connect to the mailserver and send mail. Now check the filter log to see the packets that where transmitted.
You can also try this with the SMTP packet filter disabled.
One more option: enable the SMTP protocol inspector again. Go to the debug log and richt click in the window. Select Messages... and select the SMTP protocol inspection. Connect to the mailserver and check the debug log.
