VPN

I use metronet email and when I installed a VPN I couldn't send emails. The VPN guys gave me some code, servers settings, to add to their code and all worked. I have now added Plusnet email to my artillary, with view to ending my Metronet email, and I have the same problem again, can't send email from the plusnet email.

I have found these settings:

To set standard DNS server addressesTo set alternative DNS server addressesTo set Plusnet Safeguard DNS server addresses

Primary212.159.13.49
Secondary212.159.13.50
Primary212.159.6.9
Secondary212.159.6.10
Primary213.120.234.42
Secondary213.120.234.42

 

The Metronet code mentioned above comprises four lines, is it the top four I need for Plusnet or all six? Or are they the incorrect settings? If so where do I find the correct code?

Re: VPN

You will need to set SMTP authentication when sending via the VPN

Thank you for your input, but that doesn't fix it!

Re: VPN

Fix

I have fixed the problem. In addition to the suggestion received earlier it also required

route 212.159.13.49 255.255.255.255 net_gateway
route 212.159.13.50 255.255.255.255 net_gateway
route 212.159.6.9 255.255.255.255 net_gateway
route 212.159.6.10 255.255.255.255 net_gateway

to be inserted in the .ovpn folder.

It all works ago now.
