ComBox - Conversion of ComBox from HELO to EHLO email format for Enhanced SMTP authentication

Issue:

ComBox is factory default to work in HELO mode
Both HELO and EHLO are standard SMTP greetings used to identify the features supported by an email client

HELO email identifier is incompatible with SMTP-AUTH on many email servers

Only EHLO greeting mode supports Enhanced SMTP authentication



Environment:

Conext ComBox with firmware version 1.03BN0450 or later
All ComBox supported devices
To be performed by qualified personnel only

Applications used for this tech note:
1. ehlo.lux
or
2. helo.lux



Resolution:

To ENABLE EHLO identification mode, we will use the "ehlo.lux" script

1. Use attached or download "ehlo.lux" script (see download reference link below)
2. If necessary, extract, else copy this script into the root directory of a clean USB flash drive (ensure that there are no other files on flash drive)
3. Insert the flash drive into the ComBox and observe the Memory indicator LED, wait for it to complete flashing
4. Remove the flash drive from the ComBox
5. Power Cycle the ComBox for new settings to take effect.

You can now take the flash drive and insert to your computer and review "settings.log" file and confirm the script ran successfully
Optional: It is now ok for you to save those files or clear your flash drive for other uses.
