    Default Forcing Tomcat to a Single IP

    Hi. I'm running Zimbra on a server with 3 IP addresses, and I need it (specifically tomcat) to bind to one, rather than all of them. It seems that Tomcat is currently bound to all, but binding it (the http/https connectors) to a single IP in server.xml prevents Zimbra from starting. Do I need to create duplicate connectors to bind to 1 IP and to localhost? Am I overlooking something?

    Thanks for the help,
    Will

    *Edit* This is "Release 3.0.0_M4_41.RHEL4_20060117091200 CentOS4"

    What error are you getting? We pre-bind to many ports in our startup code (native code) which allows us to bind to ports as root. It may be that this code is conflicting with your change to server.xml

    I just went back to recreate the error, and ended up with a different result. In /opt/zimbra/tomcat/conf/server.xml.in I changed

    Code:
    <!-- HTTPSBEGIN
    <Connector port="%%zimbraMailSSLPort%%"
    enableLookups="false" maxThreads="100" minSpareThreads="100" maxSpareThreads="100" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"  keystoreFile="/opt/zimbra/tomcat/conf/keystore" keystorePass="zimbra"/>
    HTTPSEND -->
    to
    Code:
    <Connector port="%%zimbraMailSSLPort%%"
    enableLookups="false" maxThreads="100" minSpareThreads="100" maxSpareThreads="100" scheme="https" secure="true" address="192.168.0.5" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"  keystoreFile="/opt/zimbra/tomcat/conf/keystore" keystorePass="zimbra"/>
    HTTPSEND -->
    And restarted Zimbra without error. Must have made some other mistake previously. Thanks.
