Has anyone been able to bind an IP address successfully? I have KMS installed on a machine with 2 NICs. There are several messages in the queue with status of 4.4.1 Cannot connect to remote host. I've checked the firewall logs, and about half the time, KMS uses the wrong IP address, and can't get through the corporate firewall. I have the SMTP and Secure SMTP services set to use the correct address.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Scott

I just noticed it specifies listening port under services. Is there a way to bind the IP address for seding?

You can choose the interface the service listens on. Select the Services page in Admin and edit the service properties.

However, it's not possible to bind the outgoing SMTP connections to a specific interface. That address should be always correctly selected by the operating systems TCP/IP stack. If you have any problems, I think that your routing table is not set up correctly.

Is it possible to set up a routing table locally on the machine? Unfortunately, we had a hardware failure, so temporarily Kerio is running on a backup node of a Windows 2000 cluster. It's all I have available at the moment with enough space. As far as I'm aware, the only thing the private IP should be used for is cluster-node to cluster-node communication, but Kerio is using the private IP roughly about half the time. The person who set up the clusters is no longer with us, and I'm not terribly familiar with clustering.

Hopefully,the new hardware will be in house soon, but I'm hoping to get this straightened out in the meantime as it adds sometimes significant delays to outbound mail. The only way I've found to get around it is about once an hour or so, I disable the private IP, process anything sitting in the queue, then re-enable the private IP.
