Equallogic PortForwarding and Server 2008 R2

Well, previously https://michaelellerbeck.com/2009/11/30/so-you-bought-an-equallogic-san-now-what-part-two/

I would use the venerable rinetd to handle portforwarding on windows. But alas, along comes server 2008 R2 and it doesn’t working anymore (actually I never tested, it might work)

But, Server 2008 R2 has built in functionality for port forwarding (nifty!)


So I just gave it a

netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 listenport=25 listenaddress= connectport=25 connectaddress=

Now I point the equallogic to (an address reachable on the san network) (It requires two nics on the ‘bridge’ server of course one on each network)

And now I can get the email alerts out! Nifty
