    Default Installation weirdness

    I had a problem yesterday that with the help of Bill (phoenix) is fixed. I'm curious as to why it happened so i setup another test server today in order to learn from this experience.

    This is how we have our network:

    Firewall catches all public ip addresses and do redirs to internal ips.

    Zimbra test server has ip: 192.168.1.101 and public address is 190.x.x.30

    My hosts file has the following line:

    192.168.1.101 mail.mydomain.com mail

    ifconfig shows me only 1 ip address (192.168.1.101)

    The install went smooth. Ldap started successfully and everything but i'm getting the connection refused error and can't receive emails.

    The problem is fixed as soon as i create an eth0 alias with the public ip on the internal server.

    What may be happening?

    Thanks,
    Fernando

    A split DNS problem, resolved by this wiki article. I was just about to reply to your other post.

    Nice! it's working fine now. We have an internal dns server already so i edited resolv.conf and it's working as expected.

    Thank you very much Bill you have been of a great help.

    Now i want to make it consume less memory and make it faster

    Glad you've fixed it.

    With that amount of memory and that number of users I wouldn't have thought Zimbra would consume too many resources. If you mean the clients then you should like the 'lite' web UI in 4.5 when it's out.

    Clients are fine. Most of the ppl in here have more memory than the server LOL

    Zimbra is taking no less than 640 mb ram.

    The server (which only runs the zimbra service) gets 150 mb ram with zimbra turned off.

    Maybe i'm running smth i don't need. Will appreciate if you could help me figuring this out

    Thanks,
    Fernando

    That's what Zimbra is supposed to do, it uses memory for it's buffers for parts of the package like MySQL. If it's running fine then there's no need to do anything to it.
