Can not connect to SMTP server
« on: February 19, 2016, 04:15:51 AM »

Hi everyone,

I have configured my DCS-933L and I was so far happy with it, but I can't make the SMTP work.

I tried three different SMTP servers:
smtp.gmail.com
smtp.free.fr
ssl0.ovh.net

None of them work and I get the "Can not connect to SMTP server" message in the status window.

My ISP (free.fr) blocks by default SMTP servers that are not the free.fr one, but I deactivated this SMTP blocking. I have also tried with free.fr SMTP in vain. When I configure my email account with Apple Mail and the correct SMTP server, it works and I can send mails, so I guess it come from the camera.

Is there a way to access a more meaningful log message (via telnet or SSH)?

Kind regards,

Ben

Found the solution!

I did not set the primary and secondary DNS... Now that they are correctly set, it works!
