That's it. No longer needed to be at your localhost to access your Zimbra Desktop.
You either need to read the webapp.ini file to guess the url to access (or tweak it to an standard url as you do) but it works.
If you improve this way of using Zimbra Desktop, or you happen to finally use it, or find any other unexpected benefits from it please let us know.
By the way if you need to replicate this into other users try to edit the same file but the one you found at:
so that it servers as a template for new user installations.
