    Yes, but which one of these is running your local DNS server?

    At risk of sounding ignorant...how do I assess which is running my local DNS server?

    I'll google this and see...

    You will (or should) have installed it yourself. I was making, perhaps wrongly, an assumption that you had a local DNS server. A local DNS server is also needed so we can resolve the local IP address of the Zimbra server otherwise you won't get mail delivered.

    Currently on 'scott', my primary machine I have bind9 installed, though can't say whether it's configured correctly:

    ii bind9 9.3.4-2etch1

    On 'david' where zimbra lives or will some day live, this is what's installed:

    ii bind9 9.3.4-2

    So, bind9 is installed on both machines. Is this the conflict, or is it port forwarding?

    I have read the posts on DNS in a nutshel, as well the wiki on Split DNS setup...alas, I run debian and those were set up for RH or other distro and the file locations had me confused. If I could just find someone running zimbra on Debian..and find them in IRC, or elsewhere, I am sure this would all be running in a matter of minutes...instead of days and weeks.

    The configuration should be pretty much the same whichever operating system it's installed on - having it on both machines is neither port forwarding nor the conflict. Is it actually running on one or both of those machines rather than just installed? If it's running on both of them I'd suggest you disable it one one of them. I'm not a debian user but there's a tutorial here that should help you - between that and DNS in a Nutshell you should be able to get it set-up. You'll also need to set the /etc/resolve.con to point to your local DNS server once you're done.
    Regards

    Bill:

    I followed the tutorial through, and was able to install a master server on my primary machine, without errors.

    Today, I again was trying to get zimbra set up and running. I ended up running ./install.sh -u and then ./install.sh again. It installed without any errors, no DNS questions or errors, and completed, without error.

    At this point I read this:

    Once the mailbox server is running, open your browser, enter the administration console URL and log on to the console to provision email accounts. The administration console URL is entered as:
    https:[mailhost.example.com]:7071/zimbraAdmin

    and proceeded to attempt to open the admin console by launching

    http://fyrenice.com.:7071/zimbraAdmin ... only to get this

    The connection has timed out

    The server at fyrenice.com is taking too long to respond.

    At this point I 'su - zimbra' and then run zmcontrol status and all return thus

    zimbra@david:~$ zmcontrol status
    Host fyrenice.com
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running

    Doesn't the above suggest I am correctly installed?

    I am lost.

    how about https://server.domain.com:7071
    (https instead of http)

    Ok...I ran that too, trying to open it at the following two links:

    https://david.fyrenice.com:7071/ zimbra box is named 'david' ..

    as well as

    https://fyrenice.com:7071/

    I also tried accessing via https://fyrenice.com:7071/zimbraAdmin and also https://david.fyrenice.com:7071/zimbraAdmin neither of which worked either.

    Not sure if this helps but my domain, fyrenice.com, is registered and points to my LAN here, with ssh routing on port 22 to my 'scott' box...not to 'david' where zimbra resides. If I load up Sandy Chiropractic Office - Dr. Scott S. Jones it loads the simple page I have created on 'scott' in apache 2. I fail to see how attempting to log on to fyrenice.com:7071 can ever correctly route to Zimbra running 'david'.

    Ports 22, 25, 80 and 110 at least, are routed to 'scott' while ports 6881, 7025, 995, 993, 443 and 389 are forwarded/routed to 'david' in the Linksys web admin interface. I have mentioned this before, but it's back up the thread a bit.
    so your mail (pt 25) is set to go to scott...and there's no mention of you running zimbra on different web ports-nor a mention of 7071 open to david...
    Why don't you give us a little more detail on your setup...
    You really need to examine your DNS if you plan to use this for incoming mail...
