Mike, if you need the help, I and some others are available remotely. Yes, I
have been extremely busy do to trying to wrap up a project, but this is an
important matter.


Also, please note that the Linksys router is just that, a router. If you are
"publishing" an Exchange server, DNS, websites and OWA, I would seriously
consider a firewall.

No need to apologize Stephen, I am/was a anal about MS.  Just when I'm use
to taking care of an OS that you don't have to really worry about all these
outbreaks, then I'm stuck fixing them, I got hot headed.sorry.


Stephen, I have to setup a Linksys 4 port router tonight on our Win2k/Ex2k
on the same DC server this evening.  I think I have the correct ports to
open but I was wondering if you can clarify this for me on the ports that
need opened.


External users just connect to our Exchange server and internal users needs
basically web access and also we need OWA, but I'm having no success getting
this going.

Anyways, correct me if I'm wrong PLEASE on the ports.


Ports 80, 443, 25, 110 and 53 need to be open.


My problem with OWA, if you don't have Admin rights, you can't access it.  I
did put a posting on MS newsgroups and someone re-posted that I need to have
the Domain/users in the DC Security Policy, User Right Assignments, Access
this computer from the Network.  Did that, no luck.  Any suggestions???


Far as grabbing a stiff drink, trust me, I've had many in the last two weeks
due to MSBLAST and SOBIG.

My apologies Mike, I should look outside the square I sit in - then I would
have realised that your MS Admin had left!

Perhaps you could ask the group for a specialist remote support contact (hey
John, you busy?) Or maybe even ask if there is any one known near your small
town (hey Mark, don't you live near small town?)

I admire you taking on a new OS after having lived the life with VMS! But it
ain't gonna be an easy fix. Look thru the posts, install a good firewall and
grab a stiff drink and a good book! You will get there with an M$ solution -
all it takes is some time!
