Two Mail Server on One Public IP

Hi All,

Re: Two Mail Server on One Public IP

Hi Dhavel

It is possible if your mail servers are listening on different ports but i suspect they are both using the SMTP port (port 25) which means that the pix would have no way of distinguishing which private IP to translate to.



Re: Two Mail Server on One Public IP

Hi Dhaval,

It is not possible unless you change the SMTP port on the Mail Server, but that is not really a good idea. if ur ready to change the port on the mail server on one of the PC, then you can do PAT for a single public IP address to 2 different Private IP address.

eg.> port 25> port 26

this kind of rule you can very well create on the PIX firewall.
