Hello, and thanks for taking the time to look at my question.
Following several recommendations I purchased an 877 router for my company. We have a simple setup: a single Mac Pro server running OS X Snow Leopard Server with 4 iMac clients and 1 PC client on the local network connected using a ProCurve switch. At home I have a single iMac.
My Mac Pro server hosts our email server software (Kerio Connect). Email in the office is always fine. Connecting from home to send/receive email is intermittent to say the least. Some mornings I launch Apple Mail and collect my messages fine. Other mornings the Mail application cannot connect to the mail server.
If I drive in to the office I can access my messages on the local network fine. If I then switch off and switch back on the router and drive home the email works fine again. This is not very convenient!
So to my question. How can I check if my router is setup correctly please. I can look up all the port, IP address information on my email server but have no idea how to ensure the correct ports are open etc on the router.
Thank you very much.
