    Default [SOLVED] multiple non zimbra servers

    Hello, I have recently installed Zimbra on a personal home server. The problem I'm having is that it is not my only server.

    My primary server is at bugs2go.com (gandalf) it is behind a DD-wrt router that passes several ports along to the internal address of gandalf.

    I now have a second server being a dedicated zimbra server called smaug.bugs2go.com. I believe I have the A and MX records set correctly but I'm not sure as I have not seen any examples of multiple servers with the same domain and different hosts.

    So I guess my question now is how do I attack the problem of getting http://bugs2go.com to go to gandalf and http://smaug.bugs2go.com to go to zimbra. I assume that it's going to involve the dd-wrt router but I don't know how to approach it. I also assume I need to do a split-dns settup for the internal NATing.

    Thanks

    From your description I guess you mean you have two mail servers behind the router, correct? If that's the case then you can't do what you propose, you'll only be able to forward port 25 to one of the servers. You might get some inspiration from the Split Domain article, see if it does what you want.

    Sorry, No I only have the one mail server smaug, Gandalf is a web (80) and ssh (22) and others. So I need to figure out how to get gandalf.com:80 to go to my webserver and smaug.bugs2go.com:80 to go to zimbras webmail.

    Is that possible?

    No, that's not possible. The same answer as the one above, a port forwarded through your router can only go to one IP address on the LAN. If you mean port 80 for your webmail then you could set Zimbra to use ssl and that would require port 443.

    Besides turning on HTTPS using zmtlsctl,
    -You could use a traffic analyzer/redirector/proxy (requiring another vm/machine).
    -You could also change Zimbra's HTTP port:
    su zimbra
    zmprov ms mail.mydomain.com ZimbraMailPort 8080
    zmcontrol stop
    zmcontrol start
    After changing the zmtlsctl/zimbraMailMode, zimbraMailPort, or zimbraMailSSLPort you may need to regenerate the zimbraMtaAuthURL: SMTP Auth Problems - ZimbraWiki

    You could also just setup a virtual web server on your "http://bugs2go.com" server to proxy the web traffic on the Zimbra server. However, the better (simpler) option would be just to use port 443 for the mail server and 80 for the web server.
