Opening Zimbra Web via IP instead of FQDN

Hi,

when accessing the Zimbra Webinterface via https://IP instead of the servers https://FQDN nginx will return an error about not reaching the upstream server.
I assume this is a security thing, for nginx not binding to the ip... In a setup where there server is reachable through the internet this might be desireable.
However in my lab, where I often experiment with zimbra it would be helpful being able to open zimbra via IP instead of needing to add the DNS to a machines local hosts-file.
Is there any chance doing so?

Thanks for any help or insight!

It works fine for me using the IP address but you should always have a correctly configured hosts file and valid DNS recodrs for a ZCS install.

I reinstalled one instance and can confirm it works now. Seems it was an error on my side - sorry!
