SMTP: Gateway Cannot Run Under Windows NT TCP/IP

Article ID: 105288

  • Microsoft Mail Gateway to SMTP 3.0

This article was previously published under Q105288


Microsoft Mail Gateway to SMTP version cannot run on Microsoft's TCP/IP for Windows NT, which uses the Winsock API: the SMTP Gateway was not developed to interact with this.

The SMTP Gateway does run on top of two Microsoft TCP/IP products that use the Microsoft LAN Manager APIs:

  • LAN Manager TCP/IP
  • Windows for Workgroups TCP/IP (must use the MS-DOS redirector)

The software must be loaded in the correct order. Start TCP/IP (for LAN Manager or Windows for Workgroups) first with the "load tcpip" command. Then start the TCP/IP application interface, called SOCKET, by typing "SOCKETS". When these have been started, you can start the SMTP Gateway software with the "smtpgate" command.
