Sendmail dials up ISP on request of MS Exchange

Sendmail dials up ISP on request of MS Exchange

Following configuration is given:

1. Linux Server with Sendmail and ISDN dialup connection to ISP
2. Win95/NT Client with Exchnage / Outlook

The exchange mail clients take every 2 minutes mail from sendmail on the
Linux Server
The Linux Server dials up the ISP every 10 minutes. WHY?
This happens only if the exchange clints are running.
How can i filter the broadcast messages and which broadcasts i have to
filter out?

Folgende Netzkonfiguration sei gegeben:
1.Linux Server mit Sendmail und ISDN w?hlverbindung zum ISP
2. Win95/NT Client mit Exchnage / Outlook
Die Mailclients holen sich alle 2 Minuten vom lokalen Linux Server Mail
Der Linux Server baut aber aus unerfindlichen Grnden alle 10 Minuten
eine Verbindung zum ISP auf. Dies tut er nur, solange Exchange gestartet

Wie kann man die Broadcast Pakete herausfiltern, die den
Verbindungsaufbau verursachen? Welche Pakete mssen gefiltert werden?


1. Exchanging email with an ISP over a dial-up connection

I've just configured my standalone Solaris (x86, v2.6) to dial into my ISP
using pppd. What's the best way to configure the system to exchange email
with my ISP ?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
