After downloading and setting up the DShield Universal
Firewall Client i was able to send email to
reports@dshield.org and my email address.

From last week until today I could only send one
report successfully. The CVTWIN log shows the problem
as follows.

"Unable to send email to reports@dshield.org,
louisd@davidsoncom.net (Error code= -2 Error message
="Bad SMTP server address" Error info
=mail.davidsoncom.net").

I am having no problems with my other emails receiving
or sending.

Louis.

    Your support request was assigned to Wayne Larmon
    (wlarmon@dshield.org). Did you get a response yet?

    Looks like a configuration error. Please double check the
    SMTP Server name field and verify that you can get to it
    from your system.

    e.g. From a command prompt enter (without the quotes):
    "telnet mail.davidsoncom.net 25"

    If it still doesn't work for some reason, you can enter
    mail.dshield.org as the SMTP server in CVTWIN. But note: You
    can only send to DShield if you do this. You can't send a
    copy to yourself.

    Or is it possible you have a personal firewall blocking the
    access?
