[SOLVED] ping problems :(
i had installed zimbra on a ubuntu 8.04 , without any errors, but i have a problem that is getting me annoyed.
the problem is , i can send mail to the exterior , but i cannot send back to zimbra , and the ping is the problem
its pinging to the private ip address of my zimbra box , and off course through the internet obviusly it couldnt find my server
i did the split-dns thing , im behing a firewall (iptables), and my mail server is apart from the dns one.
public ip 100.100.100.100
when i do a ping in my local net , it resolves good (and so www, and other services i got running)
but when i ping through the internet, all the other services get the public ip ok , but mail keeps pinging to 126.96.36.199 and loses all the packets
any idea of what would i do?
and another question , how can i set a virtualhost in 188.8.131.52 (the webserver) to get my zimbra administration page showed in the 100.100.100.100 public ip?
i know first i need to get access with public ip from the internet to my mail first.
any hint would be very appreciated :)))
Not familiar with multiviews...
as it applies to BIND. Most split DNS configurations require two DNS servers. One with the zone file that contains your internal data that Zimbra uses as a resolver and one that is the true Start of Authority that contains your external data that the outside world will look to to resolve your IP's.
Your internal data should not be viewable to the outside as it obviously is or the ping would not be directed to the internal IP.
Is this DNS server setup as the Start of Authority at your registrar?
