Hi all,

I've installed zimbra on a debian etch vserver but am unable to access the web interface to administrate zimbra. The vserver I've installed zimbra in is behind a router so I've set up split DNS which is working correctly.

I am able to ping the vserver's virtual IP (10.1.0.3) from my client pc (10.2.0.31). The vserver hosting zimbra is a remote server I'm renting. It is linked to my WAN via an openvpn VPN (which works fine). I've checked firewalling issues but couldn't find any, just to be sure I added a rule allowing all traffic to and from my pc.

When I attempt to connect to the admin console (via https://10.1.0.3:7071/zimbraAdmin/) my browser says that it's connected but seems to be wait for something from the server. The page just stays blank.

When I try to connect to http://10.1.0.3:7780/ I get a "It works" message.

There are no other services (than bind) running on the zimbra vserver.

Here is some basic information :

root@zimbra1:/root# hostname
zimbra1.nurvnet.org
root@zimbra1:/root# host zimbra1.nurvnet.org
zimbra1.nurvnet.org A 10.1.0.3
root@zimbra1:/root# host -t mx zimbra1.nurvnet.org
zimbra1.nurvnet.org MX 10 zimbra1.nurvnet.org
root@zimbra1:/root# cat /etc/hosts
# /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
10.1.0.3 zimbra1.nurvnet.org zimbra1

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
# (added automatically by netbase upgrade)

::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
