    Default How to use Zimbra-LDAP in the Thunderbird

    I've successfully installed Zimbra open source edition. Now my question is how I can use the Zimbra-LDAP in the Mozilla Thunderbird as the directory server? Thanks

    You can setup a standard LDAP directory address book under Thunderbird and point it to your Zimbra server and it should work fine.

    Are you running into any specific problems trying to do this?

    Thanks, it works now. I used 636 port before. It failed. Now I use 389.

    Default Thunderbird Contact Sync

    I have tried to setup Thunderbird (1.5, Ubuntu 7.04) to access our Zimbra (OS 4.5.5) server. I was able to get the IMAP to work with no difficulty. I tried setting up the Contact sync and that does nothing. I have not been able to get it to sync with my calendar and Lightning.

    Is it possible to see the Contacts and the Calendar?

    If it is what are the setup parameters?

    Address Book
    Directory Server Properties

    General Tab
    Name: Zimbra
    Hostname: my.server.com
    Base DN: []
    Port Number: 389
    Bind DN: []

    Advance Tab
    Don't Return more than 500 results
    Scope: Subtree
    Search filer: (mail=*)

    Default LDAP issues!!

    When I setup my testing Zimbra server with a public IP, LDAP access from Thunderbird worked. However, when I setup my production Zimbra server behind a firewall, Thunderbird LDAP access fails. I got an error message - "Replication failed". Zimbra's other functions work well. And I believe the firewall opens 389 port for LDAP.

    Any ideas what may be wrong with my server?

    Thanks a lot!

    If you're accessing it behind the NAT device then you'll need to point it to the LAN IP not the public IP address.

    Default LDAP issues!!

    No, the Thunderbird is located outside my LAN. In my firewall, the TCP port - 389 is forwarded to my Zimbra server.

    OK, what happens if you telnet to the server on port 389? Do you have an external LDAP or just the Zimbra LDAP (not that it should make any difference).

    Default LDAP issues!!

    1) It seemed to me the telnet connection failed. But there was no problem at all to telnet to my IMAP and other servers. However, I could not find any problem with my firewall NAT forwarding settings with TCP port -389. Actually I have the same settings as 143, 993, etc.

    2) I don't use any external LDAP. Just Zimbra LDAP.

    Any posibility there is something wrong with my Zimbra Server settings?

    Thanks,

    Default Same Issue as above - Can't access LDAP

    Hi,

    I appear to be having the same issue as above, in that i can't telnet to port 389 from any machine other than the zimbra host.

    There is no firewall other than what zimbra may have installed - so the solution may just be telling me where in the zimbra config I can set port 389 access.

    Cheers!
