Re: Configure SMTP server in TCP/IP

It depends but often the SMTP server is defined as the alternate gateway.
$ TCPIP SHOW CONFIG SMTP
should show you the name e.g
Alternate gateway: relay.xxx.com

You can change it with

TCPIP SET CONFIG SMTP/GATE=ALT="relay2.xxx.com"

then stop and start SMTP

@SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$SMTP_SHUTDOWN
@SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$SMTP_STARTUP

Re: Configure SMTP server in TCP/IP

FLASSAYER,

Ian's posting notes the exact commands for TCP/IP services for OpenVMS.

However, your post did not state which of several TCP/IP implementations you are actually using, or whether you were using the standard SMTP component, or an add-on, such as MX.

The first step is determining which IP stack you are using, and then whether or not you are making use of the SMTP implementation that came with the IP stack, or whether you are using a separate SMTP component.

Re: Configure SMTP server in TCP/IP

I tried Ian's commands and change my alternate gateway in SMTP configuration, but
i have theses parameters when i type the commande "SHO MX_RECORD xxx.com" :

BIND MX Database

Server : nameserver

Gate adress Preference Gate Name
10 gatename1.xxx.com
10 gatename2.xxx.com

I suppose i need to change the gatename1 and gatename2 too... If i'm right, how can i do that ?

Thanks
Ian Miller.

Re: Configure SMTP server in TCP/IP

the MX records are defined in your DNS server and need to be changed there.

Was there an alternate gateway already defined?
