    Importend for gemail, foxmail pegasus,etc mail users.
    with outlook express and incredimail it works without any change

    If you go in the MailEnable MMC > Servers > Connectors, right click on the SMTP connector and click on Properties, click the Relay TAB and uncheck Allow Relay for Privileged IP ranges, or add the IP's you want to enable to relay. I disabled it, and it works fine now.

    return the PC to the dealer
    say to him you understand too little about it


    it is a *.exe file. ask plesk for a demo key.

    it is not necessarily at this point to install the key. you can make it also later.you see however then directly that everything run.

    for plesk 7.03

    to fix the php error problem:

    with mysqlcc (from mysql.org) run sqlscript in misc:

    insert into misc (param,val) values
    ('mssql_admin_login','sa'),
    ('mssql_admin_passwd','password');

    password to your password

    when not exist also

    insert into misc (param,val) values
    ('MSSQLServer','localhost');

    importantly sql security
    prevent from unnecessary hack attack

    go to the sql server manager
    go to Microsoft SQL Server>SQL Server Group>local
    Right click Propertis
    Select Network Configuration
    select TCP/IP properties TCP/IP
    Check box on Hide server
    press OK and restart sql server

    so prevented that traffic with attacked one prevents( up to 80kB/s our measurement)

    this worth should be still adapted

    SOA_TTL
    SOA_Refresh
    SOA_Retry
    SOA_Expire
    SOA_Minimum

    If these parameters are absent, the default settings will be used.

    Example:

    INSERT INTO misc VALUES ('SOA_TTL','86400');

    Plesk FQA

    test DNS server with

    I think that the following services can disabled:

    Telephony
    Remote Access Auto Connection
    Remote Access Connection
    Remote Desktop Help
    Routing and Remote Service

    Win2003 Hardening for IIS

    Has anyone actually performed the Win2003 and IIS hardening processes and then installed Plesk ?

    I see no mention of it here at all and I would think of it as being essential for a reliable hosting platform. I'll find out on my test server build before I build my live server.

    I'll let you know....
