Wingate Help Plzzzz
Hi everyone, I am running a small (4 PC) home network. I currently use Wingate 2.1 to share an internet connection. I just added 5 real e-mail accounts to my dial up account and I am trying to setup each pc to check the users unique email address. I can check each one at my pc(the one with the modem) but when I try and set up the pop3 & smtp servers at the client machines (via netscape and/or IE) I get errors telling me that the server does not have a dns entry. Does anyone out there know if wingate can do what I am trying to make it do? Or is there something that I need to setup in wingate to tell it where to look when it receives a pop3 request?? Hope this makes sence to you, if not please let me know if you need more info.
Check Wingate's help in Gatekeeper on setting up POP3 applications. I believe(but not sure) that you give your wingate machine as the server, then use username#isp.com as the username, and then put in the password. Wingate's POP3 proxy interprets the name and redirects the request to the ISP. Wingate's help is a lot more specific in explaining it.
Thanks, who would have thought of looking there? I just checked it out, I will have to mess with it tomorrow. Thanks for the reply. Steve
P.S. I just downloaded 3.0, I may just buy the home license and re-setup the whole thing. I have also been looking at spoon proxie, looks easy to set up and configure. Kinda hate to mess with wingate, been working well for a long time now.

If you decide to do some looking around, check out Sygate. I used Wingate for a long time and never had a complaint, but I got a hold of Sygate and have been very pleased. It is a little buggy when it comes to doing some very advanced things, but for the basics it is almost too easy. You setup the machines inside pretty much just as though they were connected to the internet directly. www.sygate.com
If your going for ease of use and for quick setup, I myself would recommend Winproxy. It works great. I've been using it for a month now, in my small 3 pc network and have had absolutely no problems. Sygate does work well too, im not sure which is cheaper though, and they both work. Wingate sucks in my personal opinion.
Well I just downloaded wingate 3.0.2, I have been using 2.1 for over a year now and the only time I have trouble is when I want to change something. I was able to setup my clients with unique e-mails, I had to do a little tweaking to the SMTP server mappings, but once I got it figured out it does work slick. Now the next time I have to mess with it(2 months from now probablly) I'll have forgotten what I did to get it to work!!
Thanks for the help 800XL, sure got me going in the right direction.
