You will need to verify the properties for both receive connectors as follows:


  1. In the Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration, click Hub Transport, and then click the Receive Connectors tab.
  2. Right-click on the “Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive <ServerName>” receive connector, and then click Properties. Verify the following:
    • Under the Network tab, ensure that the local IP address is set to 127.0.0.1, the port is set to 25, and the remote IP address(es) are 127.0.0.1-127.0.0.1
    • Under the Authentication tab, ensure that only Basic Authentication is selected.
    • Under the Permission Groups tab, ensure that only Anonymous users and Exchange users are selected.
  3. Right-click on the “Windows SBS Internet Receive <ServerName>” receive connector, and then click Properties. Verify the following:
    • Under the Authentication tab, ensure that only Transport Layer Security (TLS) is enabled.
    • Under the Permission Groups tab, ensure that only Anonymous users is selected.



In rare cases, you may need to delete the “Windows SBS Fax Sharepoint Receive <ServerName>” and ”Windows SBS Internet Receive <ServerName>” connectors and rerun the Fix My Network Wizard (FNCW) to create them with the proper settings.
