I'm using a Netgear FVS318. Everything seems to work fine except the
feature that will automatically mail the firewall logs to me. I get
"Problem sending log mail, check log settings" in the log when it tries to
send its mail message. Does anyone have this firewall/router and does the
email feature work for you?

Thanks,

I've never been able to get those features to work on anything. Most email
SMTP servers require a password and there never seems to be a provision for
one on a budget firewall. Go figure...

Exactly. That is my problem. If anyone knows of a workaround, I'm all
ears!

Well, my FM114P does have SMTP authentication. (Well, I don't know if
it's working as I know my ISPs SMTP server without authentication...)

I guess this leads me to another question... what SMTP server can I use that
doesn't require authentication?

Well, usually your ISP's smtp server should be accessible.

I have the netgear fwg114p and have set the unit to send the log to me
daily and it's worked perfectly.

Just make sure the settings are identical to what you use in your
email program to send mail. Same server, same id, same password. It
will work.

I was referring to your spam statement...

Most are no in the U.S. so it won't help you. As you may have noticed I
use RoadRunner.

The only thing you can really do is to write to netgear and push them to
add it as soon as possible to their firmware...

What version of the firmware version are you using? The current
version is 2.3 and there's a 2.4 beta that fixes some minor bugs.

It works fine on all of the 318's I've installed.
The smtp server should be one you are allowed to use, preferably your ISP.
Also make sure the firmware is the latest version. Netgear boxes almost
never run properly with the shipping version.

There is a later version on their website (advertised as a beta) which
works like a charm.

My ISP's smtp server requires a password. So did the last two ISPs I've
had. A quick check at work with a department full of programmers confirms
that unless you are using a dial up account, the norm is to require
authentication. On the FVS318, with any version of software, there is no
place to enter a password. The last smtp server that I know of that does
not require authentication was my account at school, many years ago. If you
know of a smtp server that does not, please let me know.

Some ISP's require a password, some don't. In the case of many DSL
providers for business, they provide non-passworded SMTP access to
anything that resides on their networks.

Yes, we have discussed that already. It doesn't really help him because
he has this provider that requires SMTP authentication. And the FVS318
obviously does not support that.

It all comes down to asking Netgear to add that in their firmware or
switching the ISP.
