    Default Dedicted webfrontend in DMZ

    Hi
    I've currently set up a Zimbra installation. I've installed everything on a dedicated server within our LAN. But I'm about reluctant to make my internal server available on the net, so I wondered if it is possible to have a dedicated web-frontend in our DMZ, and make that available to our external users and still use the current server as combined backend for the entire solution and frontend for our internal users.
    An other option is to only have the frontend in the DMZ and make that available for both internal and external users and have the database store located on the LAN.
    How is this normally achieved for off site users?

    Default zimbra proxy

    I don't have this config myself but I would expect to use a zimbra proxy?

    Exactly. The only other method, which would not be supported, is to use the Zimbra NGINX configuration files and set up a server with that installed. The simplest and preferred route would be to install Zimbra Proxy though.

    Have a read through Zimbra™ Collaboration Suite first.

    Thanks for the tip, I found the documentation here
    But it mentions some reconfiguration that has to be done. And I have this time browsed through the documentation, and I'm not finding anything remotely similar to this. And yet, I feel that it is something I have missed.
    What?
