    Default [SOLVED] daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99

    I'm kind of lost here and would really appreciate some help.. here's how my system is set up. First, DNS entries:

    My home IP is 67.164.73.95.

    nslookup
    > campee.bounceme.net
    Server: cns.sanjose.ca.sanfran.comcast.net
    Address: 68.87.76.178

    Non-authoritative answer:
    campee.bounceme.net MX preference = 5, mail exchanger = campeemail.bounceme.net

    campeemail.bounceme.net internet address =67.164.73.95 (the same as my home IP)

    Here's how my Ubuntu 6.06 server system is set up:

    root@campeemail:/usr/src/zcs# hostname
    campeemail.bounceme.net
    root@campeemail:/usr/src/zcs# hostname -f
    campeemail.bounceme.net

    root@campeemail:/usr/src/zcs# cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.1.1 campeemail.bounceme.net. campeemail
    67.164.73.95 campeemail.bounceme.net. campeemail

    Ok, so I try to install Zimbra by running install.sh and get this:

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for campeemail.bounceme.net
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
    checking isEnabled zimbra-mta
    zimbra-mta is enabled
    MX: campeemail.bounceme.net (67.164.73.95)

    Interface: 192.168.1.9
    Interface: 127.0.0.1
    DNS ERROR - none of the MX records for campee.bounceme.net
    resolve to this host
    It is suggested that the MX record resolve to this host

    HOSTNAME=campeemail.bounceme.net
    LDAPHOST=campeemail.bounceme.net


    What am I doing wrong? How should my DNS be configured for Zimbra to work?

    Thanks for the info!

    Unfortunetly, DNS has nothing to do with it. An error 99 is a access denied message. It means that the IP address that it's trying to bind to isn't on any of the network interfaces.. . .and it's right, because your IP address is 192.168.1.9 and not 67.164.73.95 (I'm guessing 67.164.73.95 is your router. In which case, it wouldn't make much sense to have 2 67.164.73.95 addresses, now would it?)

    Try changing your hosts file to 192.168.1.9

    Oh, and you don't need the second 127 line. Kill that too while your there.

    Good luck, and enjoy your new system.

    Ok, so I've got my server up and running. I've opened up port 25 on my firewall and I'm forwarding it to the Zimbra machine. I've sent two messages from my gmail account to campee@campee.bounceme.net. I don't get any failure messages.. so I check out the queue on the Zimbra server. They're stuck in my queue with the following error:

    Reason: connect to campeemail.bounceme.net[67.164.73.95]: connection refused

    Here's my hosts file:

    root@campeemail:/opt/zimbra# cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.9 campeemail.bounceme.net

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts


    Why is it trying to connect to the public IP? Shouldn't it try to connect to localhost? Or 192.168.1.9 ?

    First of all your hosts file is incorrect, check the documentation here. Secondly, if you are behind a NAT router you need valid DNS A & MX records pointing at your LAN IP - you'll need a Split DNS setup for that.
