    I am about to set up postfix on kde and the the howto is ok but
    When I setup my new router ether net etec router I had to go to to set it up for some reason
    now when I set up postfix it will through


    I notice my network dns server is 192.168.1.

    I am not sure if this will then work with postfix.

    I confiured the router to start via DHCP
    This was very convientent at the time
    but can I set my router up via static IP and default gateway,

    I am sorry if this post is a little confusing

    xstation:) :)

    Which HowTo do you mean?
    Did you install Postfix on a separate system behind your router, or on your router?

    in a nutshell I want no intrtference with the rouyer blocking mail

    Its settings at the moment are DHCP I can change that to static IP

    I just want to know hoe to configure so the router is not comprimised

    yes the ip address with the router has "1" missing my mistake.

    Turn on the router's firewall and make sure you forward port 25 from your router to your Postfix server.

    The router itself should have a static IP address ( in your case). DHCP means your router gives out IP addresses to systems in your network that don't have a static IP address so that's fine. :)

    I am on a dual boot

    xp/linux both have the same static IP but I think I can change that.

    But they don't run at the same time so it's ok if they have the same IP address.
