I want to run a mail server from within debian linux guest with vmware workstation xp host. The setup is a bridged network connection
I know what I must do I think (see below ) but I do not know how
please can you point me to some howto;s that may help
here are things that need to be done:
a)Configure the Guest with a static IP on my home network. Verify that I can telnet to port 25 of the Guest from a system on my home network.
B)Then configure my home firewall/NAT box to forward incoming connections on TCP port 25 to the static IP address I gave my Guest. Then test that I can telnet to port 25 from a system outside my home network.
c)After that I need to configure the appropriate DNS records for my domain so that outside hosts know how to contact my mailserver.
thanks for any feedback
