Here's the actual setup of my network..
My Server PC is behind a Netgear router and our LAN uses the 10.0.0.0 block of private I.P. addresses.
I'm no networking guru but I thought you may need the below information...
I don't have a TLD assigned to my router but a sub domain called sub.example.com ... I've put a CNAME record with my domain registrar to point to another domain provided by dyndns.org since my router has a dynamically assigned IP address... from the router we use port forwarding to point to our server in case of HTTP requests .... Everything works fine till here.. [lamp stack]
After advice on the forums and reading some documentation I reinstalled debian and
made appropriate changes to the etc/hosts file so that the installation proceeds The installation went on fine till it found that no MX record was configured..
Later I realized the split dns article that was supllied to me in one of the posts. I downloaded bind9 server but wasn't able to configure it... Made some search got this link...
DNS ERROR - none of the MX records for delsoft.delian.co.in
resolve to this host
Configuring bind9 in a chroot, lenny version titled Configuring bind9 in a chroot
Should I configure bind9 as per the above article and then go ahead with the split dns article in zimbra wiki?
Is it ok to not have a actual TLD but a subdomain and what other ports have I to forward to my server..
There was an error related to LDAP as well further down in the installation. and it asked me to run a particular .pl file to finish with the installation.. I guess I'm gonna do this from start all over...
lastly if the system is not touched for a while then a black screen appears and on mouse movement I can't get back to desktop...
is it necessary to install zimbra memcached and zimbra proxy in my case..
