[SOLVED] Howto: Bind to one specific IP / Listen to one IP

Postby Costa-101 » Sun Apr 01, 2007 1:08 pm

Hello all,
I am trying to make full use of the zmapache thus reducing the need to run two web servers on a single machine.
I have successfully managed to bind the webmail to IP-A.

I can also get zmapache to run on IP-B:7780 at the same time.
I am trying to use two IP address and run webmail on IP-A:80 with zmapache on IP-B:80.
However, I face the following error:
[QUOTE]

(13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.11.100:80

no listening sockets available, shutting down

Unable to open logs

[/QUOTE]
when trying to start zmapachectl after adding:
[QUOTE]Listen IP-B:80[/QUOTE]
to the conf/httpd.conf file.
Can anyone help please?
look forward to hearing from you
Costa:D

In reply to my last,
the reason is because you are not running the zmapache as root.
simply run
[QUOTE]sudo /opt/zimbra/httpd/bin/httpd[/QUOTE]
if you then get
[QUOTE](98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80

no listening sockets available, shutting down

Unable to open logs[/QUOTE]
you need to edit /opt/zimbra/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
et viola
thank you

You should not use the zimbra services for anything else, they won't survive an upgrade.

Surely just create an alias to your uniquely and highly configured httpd.conf file.
This reduces the need to use proxying which slows web access down in my experience.
Otherwise what is it there for?

[quote user="kibo"]Hello
One stupid question but somehow related! How can I force LDAP to listen on ALL the IPs instead of the one IP?
Regards

I am wondering this same thing. I need the ldap server to listen on localhost or at least the lan IP... wondering if this is possible at all.

I get a strange error now that I've bound Apache and Tomcat to specific IP addresses...
My firewall blocks incoming port 7071, so I use an SSH tunnel to redirect my servers port 7071 to my localhost port 7071.
I can't access the admin interface any longer now... my browser says that it can't connect to port 7071.
I see the following error at the console on the server every time I try to connect via the browser
channel 3: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused
When I use wget or lynx from the server itself, it seems to be OK.
Any ideas? I've done some googling, and have found a few entries that mention this error with MySQL, but can't imagine its that causing it... or could it be that the admin application is now connecting to MySQL via the IP address I've hardcoded into Tomcat? and I need to change the MySQL permissions to be able to connect from this host?

thanks for your work, MrDigi, it was really useful :).

Problems:



  • 02-04-2007: Don't know if its really because of the settings above, but the simple Client refuses to work: (A network service error has occurred (zclient/io).



[/QUOTE]
I managed to get the simple client to work.. it fails because it connects to 127.0.0.1:80, and tomcat is (obivously) no longer listening on that address.
I tried to identify which parameter governs the destination address to which the SC connects, but I failed (any insight from a zimbra employee would be great!).
so.. i simply installed a simple connection proxy ( e.g. http://antifork.org/trac/browser/trunk/awgn/codes/proxed.c?format=raw ) that binds to localhost and forwards the connection to the tcp port 80 the IP I set in zimbra.web.xml.in, port 80.
obivously, it is a dirty hack, but it's effective :).
cheers,

Just a quick note -
zmprov needs to be able to connect to 7071/tcp on localhost, you'll need to bear this in mind you want to do any automated account maintenance using zmprov.

Unless you specify the -l option which forces it to connect to ldap.
