Re: Help in connecting to ADSL2+ Telstra Exchange

So by looking at the above link to the plans I will be charged a line activation fee of $120.00 even though I am an existing exetel customer wishing to move to another plan. Is this correct?
I was looking at moving to the TE-2D but the $120 charge is a little to step at present.

Re: SMTP connection failure.

Windows seems to regress at every new version, but you can enable telnet like this: http://www.fettesps.com/windows-7-enable-telnet/ Telnet is an ancient but standard technique for talking to other computers. Make sure that you have n...

Re: SMTP connection failure.

If you are trying from an Exetel address with a valid account (ie, you can receive messages) you should get on, unless there is a serious mis-configuration of your email client. Remember that sending email is over an UNsecured connection, so check that. If you wish to try the command line method to...
