    Default What exactly does z-push do?

    Ok, this might sound stupid, but I can not find a real document telling me how to use it and what it does...

    What I have:
    a LAMP server (used a Turnkey server) with z-push 1.5 and z-push 2.4 installed (2 different directories). Both can be accessed with:
    http://<ip>/z-push1
    and
    http://<ip>/z-push2

    Both asks for a U/P and gives me (well, it looks like) the correct response.
    (GET not supported This is the Z-Push location and can only be accessed by Microsoft ActiveSync-capable devices)

    So, it seems like I have a working solution.
    WHAT NOW?
    HOW do I access mail using for example my iPhone?
    This is running on my LOCAL LAN, so I suppose I need to get an A-Record for the server to access it from outside the LAN.

    sorry if this sounds stupid, but the documentation on z-push is a bit in the 'air' and hard to come by...

    Kind regards

    If you give the server a publicly accessible IP address, then it allows any mobile device that supports activesync email accounts to sync email/contacts/calendar and tasks with your zimbra server.

    WOW is all I can say! (I forgot to open the port on my FW, but now everything is working as it should!)

    I hope this will become a 'defacto' standard for Zimbra!

    If I can make a suggestion to anyone, get this installed! It works like a charm. I will be doing a writeup on my blog: cyber7 - Check out my Zimbra8 installation.

    As far as I understand, the zpush environment just stands between your device (I call it a device, as it can be a number of things) and the zimbra server, checking for new mail (in the inbox) and notifying the device. There is physically no intervention on the zpush server and the device, rather between the device and zimbra server.

    I hope that makes it clear to you.

    z-push-2 has it's own built-in provisioning code. I have not spent time looking at it. It is all based on hard-coded settings on one of the php files (lib/syncobjects/syncprovisioning.php) though there are some discussions about moving it out of there to config.php or an alternative configuration.

    There is a thread on the z-push forum that describes some of the settings. You can check it out, and see if you can get the combination of policies you desire.

    z-push.net &bull; View topic - Policies
