How to Create an X.400 Connector


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-05

You can create an X.400 connector to connect to another X.400 system after you create a TCP X.400 or X.25 X.400 transport stack.

  1. In Exchange System Manager, right-click Connectors, point to New, and then click X.25 X.400 Connector or TCP X.400 Connector.

  2. On the General tab (see the following figure), in the Name box, type the connector name.

  3. On the General tab, under Remote X.400 name, click Modify.

  4. In Remote Connection Credentials, in Remote X.400 name, type the name of the remote X.400 connector on the remote server. (The remote connector name defaults to the remote server name.) In the Password box, type the password for the remote X.400 connector. In the Confirm password box, type the password again.

  5. Select one of the following options:

    • On the Address Space tab, click Add, select an address type, and then, in the Address Properties box, type all required information, including cost.

    • On the Connected Routing Groups tab, click Add. On the General tab, in the Organization box, type the name of the organization that contains the routing group to which you want to connect, and then in the Routing Group box, type the name of the routing group to which you want to connect.

      The organization must exist on an Exchange server so that the naming conventions are known. Optionally, you can type address space information and cost on the Routing Address tab. By default, the address space is created from the organization and routing group names, and the cost is 1.
  6. If the remote system is not an Exchange server, on the Advanced tab, clear the Allow Exchange contents check box.

    If you do not clear the check box, addresses on messages are in domain name form and not in X.400 form, and replies are not possible.

  7. On the Stack tab for an X.25 X.400 connector, in the X.121 address box, type the X.121 address of the remote server as specified in the X.25 network service setup.


    On the Stack tab for a TCP X.400 connector, choose one of the following options:

    • Select Remote host name, and then, in the Address box, type the fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

    • Select IP Address, and then, in the Address box, type the remote server's IP address.
