RT on Windows

Hello,

I am currently running RT2 on RedHat. Everything ok. Now people ask me to
install it on Windows :-(. I peformed a test install using rt-3.0.4.exe.
What about the mailgate ? Do I need a local SMTP server ? How will RT
exchange (send and receive) emails on Windows ? What if the SMTP server
runs on Windows ? Any hints ?

Regards

I am currently running RT2 on RedHat. Everything ok. Now people ask me to
install it on Windows :-(. I peformed a test install using rt-3.0.4.exe.

Please use 3.0.7, not 3.0.4. I wonder where did everybody get the
3.0.4 link? The latest installers are always available on:

What about the mailgate ?

The mailgate does not currently work. There is a half-finished pop3gate
that I’d be happy if somebody can make it work.

Do I need a local SMTP server ?

Any SMTP server will do, as long as you give RT the correct SMTPServer
and SMTPFrom parameters during setup time.

How will RT exchange (send and receive) emails on Windows ? What if
the SMTP server runs on Windows ? Any hints ?

If Exchange is configured to accept SMTP, my experience is that it
just works. No idea about other servers, though.

Thanks,

I apologize, I did not read the list just before posting ! I just discovered

It’s very kind to you to reply to me so quickly, despite your previous
response to Travis Niedens. Thanks for the informations.

Kind regards

Is there a non-installer based version of the Windows port available? If
not, can you give some pointers on what is needed to get the standard
source tarball working under Windows?

I’m primarily interested in the Windows port for test and development,
which means lots of work at home. Having to download and run additional
versions of Perl, MySQL and Apache is inconvenient over a modem. I’d be
glad to continue your work on the popgate, if I can get RT running on
Windows without the installer.

What worked for me is to run the installer on high speed access - you
eventually get the individual downloads - burn to CD - transfer to home.
The installer zip right through if the downloads are available
locally.

Dear all,

I’m trying to install RT 3.5.5 from sources (with the aid of cygwin) on
Windows XPSP2 with Apache 2.0.54 and modperl 2.0.2; using Activeperl
5.8.7.613. I have configured Apache to load RT if given a path like
http://localhost/rt with the Alias Directive.

However, as soon as I enable in http.conf the line

PerlRequire “Path-to-Webmux.pl/webmux.pl

I cannot start the Apache service anymore. And the apache errorlog only
tells me ‘cannot load “Path-to-Webmux.pl/webmux.pl” on localhost:80’. If I
disable said line, I get to the webpage which tells me ‘ok, you have rt
installed but you need to configure your webserver…’.

I couldn’t find anymore hints/tips/leads either in the mailing list archive
nor on the wiki…

Now, I’m by no ways an apache and perl expert, so I’m completely lost and
would appreciate any hints for further investigations.

Thanks.

Don’t use windows, but if apache says that it couldn’t find then it
means path in PerlRequire is wrong.

try from cmd:
perl -e 'require “Path-to-Webmux.pl/webmux.pl”'On 11/7/05, d w dw12345678@hotmail.com wrote:
