Zimbra installs without conflict or other errors (with the exception of the MX complaint until I change to the domain.co.uk rather than mail.domain.co.uk).
http user access to zimbra works fine.
if I set zimbra to https mode, https user access works fine, certificate all ok.
I can send and receive from/to the default email account that zimbra configures.
I cannot access the admin panel however. It just times out. I've checked the url, and it appears fine. I tried altering the domain to access ir from the one in /etc/hosts to just the domain with no luck.
I have a build in a virtual machine, which has no external dns records and I can access the admin panel on that - pulling my hair out - it must be something simple.
Here is my /etc/hosts and digs in case any can spot something I can't (all cmds executed on server):
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
XX.XX.XX.XX mail.domain.co.uk mail
digs removed ---------------------
point to note - I have another ip addy, but not using atm.
