i host with hostmonster.com
my website; adhocracymgt.com is hosted with hostmonster.
they changed A record on their servers for me:
i want to install zimbra open source in a production environment to be accessed from anywhere on the internet.
adhocracymgt.com -> 'their ip address' for my website (Web is hosted at Hostmonster)
mail.adhocracymgt.com -> 'my ip address' (Mail is hosted there on my server)
this is what they said is on their server for live mail records:
adhocracymgt.com. 14400 IN MX 0 mail.adhocracymgt.com.
mail.adhocracymgt.com. 14400 IN A 188.8.131.52
Email addresses have to be, e.g. email@example.com
My 1st question is; what network settings do i need to get this working.
do these settings need to be changed?
External IP Address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Domain Name Server xx.xx.160.x3, xx.xx.160.x4 (of my isp)
Internal IP Address 192.168.1.11
IP Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
2. should the hostname of my ubuntu installation be; adhocracymgt.com or mail.adhocracymgt.com
3. in the network settings for ubuntu, in the nameserver section, do i put
my isp's nameservers,
hostmonsters name servers
make up one like 192.168.1.12 or 192.168.1.1...?
(I'm pretty sure its not the last one but just to make sure )
once i have this setup i can go ahead and install ubuntu server.
after installatation first thing i have to do before installing zimbra is the DNS settings, which i have no idea on how to do. I have looked through this forum and google, and tried many a few tutorial for DNS/bind setup, but i still get a DNS ERROR when installing zimbra.
If anyone can help me with this, i would greatly appreciate it and if i can get this working, i can buy the network edition for my company.
