Outbound Port translation possible USG 50?

Hi,
I have some older NAS devices that email me status reports daily.
They use PORT 25 (SMTP) and are not reconfigurable.
My ISP accepts connections on PORT 587 and blocks PORT 25.
Is there a way to configure a USG 50 to translate all outbound
port 25 traffic from a specific LAN device to PORT 587?
Running a dedicated SMTP server on my network has been suggested
but is not really feasible.
I would hope there is a USG 50 based solution to my problem.
Any insight appreciated.

I have not done this in a long time but the following should help:

You need to use the USG CLI interface to change port assigned for SMTP and the commands are:

configure terminal
logging mail 1 port 587
write


to display status of the smtp port

show daily-report status

I'm pretty sure you can't do this on USG. A local mail server (forwarder) would do the trick.
What NAS you have? Most can be hacked and you can tweak this right on the NAS if you get root.
Alternatively a Raspberry Pi server on your LAN would be relatively cheap solution to your requirement.

Three Buffalo NAS devices.

There seems to be lot of links on internet how to get root on Buffalo NAS (depends on exact model though).
Once you have root you might be able to adjust the e-mail port directly or install another mail-forwarder on it.

Still, I'd go with separate $50 RPi solution that will solve this issue and can be utilized for far more in the future.

You make it sound simple.

I had several small issues like this on my home network and decided to deploy RPi as my low cost server / problem solver. Best decision / investment ever.
Running my web proxy, ssh server, ftp server and voip on it, no hdd, no power consumption, just one time $50.
Up until I had RPi I was putting everything on my hacked NAS but with every FW upgrade I had to re-do things and that was quite a PITA.

If you decide to go for it I'll send you completely pre-configured e-mail proxy instructions

Actually I took care of this some time ago. It's not the zYwall logs that are the problem but rather three other devices on my LAN.
The daily-report status shows:

smtp port: 587

Sorry that I misunderstood. Looks like Brano has the solution.

I want to make a final update to this thread.
I took Brano See Profile's suggestion to set up a Raspberry Pi as an SMTP proxy server.
I couldn't be happier.
I want to publicly thank Brano See Profile for his help which made the whole process quick and straightforward.
Thanks again Brano See Profile.

I couldn't tell the gender by his handle (Lady Brano?) so I left it gender neutral.

Alex, YOU should finally get your feet wet in linux land! Raspberry Pi is infant easy, even flame blowing Llamas should be able to grasp the basics

get the BeagleBone Black instead of Raspberry Pi

Nice writeup here:
»www.cnx-software.com/2013/04/25/···parison/

BeagleBone Black is (much) faster and has nice collection of OS support (Linux, Android Jelly Bean, RTOS, etc). Hardware documentation is excellent and lots of "capes" (plug-in expansion boards »circuitco.com/support/index.php?···ne_Capes).

Raspberry Pi supports 1080p, if you want to use it as home theatre component.

Hey, we just got back from driving to Yellowstone, with stops in Twin Falls, Jackson, Bend, and Mt Shasta.

I've got some beer tips if you ever find yourself in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or Bend, Oregon.

The food at Snake River Brewing company is mind blowing. Great food, great beer, great times! Go for the $7 lunch, kick back, and have a few brewskis. In particular I liked Hoback Hefeweizen, Snake River Pale Ale, and Pako's EYE-P-A (Pako was a dog that hung out at brewery).

The Bond Street Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House is also a winner. The Fresh Squeezed IPA blew my mind, and the beer gods have smiled upon me as my local grocery store has the 22 ounce bottle! Available in limited quantities from June-Sept. Once gone its all over

So what brew and how much does it take to make sure that the port translation works correctly?
Does this also make BWM (Brew Wagon Management) of the USG100 function as one desires?
