2 exchange servers, same domain and custom transport RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have seen a lot of questions in the forum related two 2 exchange servers in the same domain. Some of them really clarifies how to configure it.

    I have a very specific problem. The servers does not have a TCP/IP connection between them, so we would like to exchange messages between them using a custom "FTP-like" protocol. The idea would be to use the Pickup / Replay directories.

    Is it possible to configure a custom transport connector between two exchange servers?

    I have setup an architecture where the initial transport connector would use plain FTP to test. This would be my Proof Of Concept to our customer. I would setup a daemon to send messages from the replay to the pickup directory of the other server.

    Best regards,

    Romano

    Hi

    Please explain more on this. if you want to use a DAG you need to have a TCP/IP network. Each network card has this so i am not sure why you want to change the architecture of Exchange to use FTP-like protocol.

  • Hi Romano,

    Sorry, I see you posted this back in July (and here we are in early September).

    I know a great deal about the PickUp and Replay directories (I worked with them both for several years) and yes it could be done but there are many caveats and gotchas.

    If you're really keen / haven't found another way by now drop me an email.

    Cheers,
