Windows 7: Port 25 refuses connections after power cut (DLINK DSL-2780)

13 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2
Port 25 refuses connections after power cut (DLINK DSL-2780)


I run a Server 2008 installation with hMail Server, behind a DLink DSL-2780 router which is used to host my email. Before my power cut everything was working fine, but after the power cut all the connections to port 25 are getting refused.

From what I can see the request isn't reaching my server, but is being stopped at the router.

This is my router settings:

I have power cycled the router with no luck, disabled the server's antivirus with no luck, and have tried opening up other ports like 26 but they produce the same port is closed error.

Any ideas would be really helpful,
