Re: Incoming Port 25 blocked - Mikrotik compatible service ?

I've got my PPPTP tunnel up and running, its pinging inbound.

However DST-NAT to my NATTed home SMTP server is not spitting packets out.

Do you need a corresponding SRC-NAT rule ?

I just want Port 25 traffic out of my SMTP server to go back out of the PPTP interface...

Incoming Port 25 blocked - Mikrotik compatible service ?

Is there any service provider out there that sells a service whereby a public IPv4 address is assigned at the tail end of a RouterOS compatible tunnel (IPv4, GRE, EoIP ?), so that I can get incoming traffic over Port 25 over my cable modem connection ?
