Router config to e-mail logs

All,
I am trying to configure my router to email me the logs but it doesn't appear to be working. The recipient & sender that I am attempting to use reside in the domain behind my router using Exchange Server 2007. I have the router configured like the following example:

Send alerts and logs via e-mail:
Your outgoing mail server: mail.domain.com
Send to this e-mail address: user@domain.com

My mail server requires authentication -
user name: domain\user
(I've also tried just "user" and "user@domain.com")

In Exchange I've gone into the hub transport settings for the server that has port 25 fwd'd to it and added the ip address of the router to the list of addresses to ignore for message filtering and Safe Sender.

For reference I have a WNDR3300 router with firmware version V1.0.29_1.0.29NA

What is the secret here?

Thanks!
Greg

I hadn't tried any others yet. Will smtp.live.com work under these circumstances?

Re: Router config to e-mail logs

I'm having trouble getting my router to email its logs.
What do you mean use PORT 25?

mail server that uses port 25, such as ISP mail server (most common to use port 25)

Re: Router config to e-mail logs

Got mine to email the logs using a lan machine running sendmail (the router doesn't support my ISP's type of smtp login). Curious thing is the all the logs sent by the router have a timestamp of 12/31/1969 6:00PM

Most likely your router NTP server did not sync. If you log in the router you should able to see what date/time shows.
