Zimbra seems like a great product, that's why I'm persistent on troubleshooting it.

(Some values have been 'x'ed out to protect our server.)

I start out the installation with the zcs/install.sh

Things were normal...

(Note: I have replaced my real domain name and 'x'ed out some of my ips addresses - if you need them for diagnostic purposes, please say so.)

The installation went smoothly with the default settings until I got to this:

I am unable to access the webmail or the admin control panel.

I'm using "theplanet.com" as a host for my dedicated server; Plesk 8 control panel is included (with its own firewall module. It also controls the databases. It may be causing some issues, possibly?)
