|Mapped link not working
on Tuesday, March 02, 2004 at 9:54:34 PM (EST)
I have setup a mapped link to access a mail server e.g.
192.168.0.48:255,255,255,0 0.0.0.0:111 pop3.server.net:110
When I run Outlook it cannot find the server. Any ideas on how outlook should be configured? Should the server name be the IP of the proxy server i.e. 192.168.0.1 ?? (not op3.server.net)
I also note that you can ping the remote server from our network server but not from a client network PC.
The operating system is Windows2000.
Any ideas help would be much appreciated.

For the map link to work Outlook has to point to Lansuite. If you have Outlook pointing to your mail server, yes you need to change it.

Had a similar problem as you, but with Eudora. I solved it, here's how:
In 602Pro LS, go to settings, advanced configuration then PROXY and select the Mapped Links tab at the bottom left of the resultant window. Now do the following:
E.G [ my settings ] -
TCP 192.168.0.200 all 110 mail1.eircom.net 110 255.255.255.0
where TCP is the protocol then,
HERE IS THE BIT THAT HAD ME STUMPED, set the "Connection From Client" IP Address to ONE YOU ARE NOT USING ON YOUR NETWORK in my case this was 192.168.0.200, not the client or server address. Port 110 for POP3, mail1.eircom.net is my ISP Mail Server address, again Port 110 [ remote pop3 port ] and finally the subnet mask of your network. Substitute your own settings for above.
All these settings are going from left to right in the mapping window. Once you have done this, click ADD. Now repeat the same thing again but set the Port to 25 in both port cases, this is the smtp port number. [ POP3 port 110 for receiving mail, SMTP port 25 for sending mail ]. Click ADD for this also.
Now you should have 2 mapped links added, one for POP3, another for SMTP. Now SAVE these settings.
Thats it on the 602Pro LS end. Off you go to Outlook and set the incoming and outgoing mail addresses to your actual server address, in my case this is 192.168.0.1. Leave all the other details as is.
Hey Presto, dial out at the server, now check your mail in outlook on the workstation. The maps will translate the request through 602pro direct to and from your ISP Mail Servers.
Hope this helps
