ProMail and MSDTC

This is a post stub; I’m capturing links at the moment and will flesh this out as I go.
For starters, I’m in a mixed-OS environment; Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 Servers. DTC through the Win2kSP1 Windows Firewall is fairly simple; allow MSDTC.EXE, and off you go.
However, when attempting to access a MSSQL Server on a Windows 2000 box, you must configure MSDTC to use dynamic ports, as the firewall option isn’t available. More on this later.
