    GWIA Setup Question - MTP Port?

    I have my GW8 GWIA running on Windows on the same server as the MTA for the domain it is in. The MTP port for the MTA is 7118. I have MTP for the GWIA set for 7119.

    Here's my question... Mail is flowing fine, but I see on the GWIA HTTP console that the MTP Send status keeps flipping between open/closed with this:

    Protocol error (B300)

    The MTP Status for Receive stays open constantly, so I assume that is referring to port 7119. Port 7118 (I'm guessing) is already in use by the MTA and when the GWIA tries to use it that causes the protocol error.

    So, since its Windows and two things can't use the same port, should I just modify the GWIA.CFG file and set /mtpoutport-0 or something?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: GWIA Setup Question - MTP Port?

    I just checked my GWIA via HTTP console and saw something similar. At a glance, I can't say it's the same thing you're getting, but I do see a B300 error and recent closure. As you're seeing, it is only on the Send side.

    However, my GWIA is working fine and unless there is a backup of mail (there is not), I'm not going to worry too much about it. It has the appearance of a problem, but exhibits no real symptoms. Kinda like a wart.

    That said, if it's working, I wouldn't put too much effort in trying to get rid of it.

    The MTP has always been weird with GWIA. I would just set it to 0 unless
    you specifically are needing outward redundancy.

    I had Novell tech support look into yesterday and they set it to 0.
    He said Novell states it's not needed in a single domain/PO scenario.

    Right, as I said, you only need it if you need to set up multiple
    outoing GWIAs to automatically failover.
