[SOLVED] 8th grade student needs help with install
Hey guys, I am incharge of a discovery learning technology course. One of our students has been trying to install zimbra and is stuck. He is using a fedora 5 box and the newest release of zimbra opensource. He has reinstalled zimbra over 10 times and always ends up with an MTA problem.
Is there anyone in the zimbra community that might be willing to talk to the student. We have the ability to call any one in the US for free.
Feel free to pm me with suggestions.
DNS might be it.. it is a mystery to us
Here is the typology of our network.. We have one router with a static IP from that we are forwarding port 80 to our IIS server to serve a web page. We followed the notes and forwarded all the necesary ports to the zimbra box like stmp, https, all of that stuff. We edited zimbra to make it host the web mail on port 81. When we log in zimbra now the mta is checked and now our spellcheckisnt working. However I dont care about fixing spell check at this moment. I would like to just get the mail working.
I need to know what DNS configurations to make. Will I be actualy editing the DNS on the windows server? Or do i just make sure that the windows server ip is in the dns box under networking proporties for the card. Dns is confusing to me, and we have a DNS server for our windows domain (EASTLAB). Then we have the schools DNS, and lastyear while messing with the website stuff I remember having to have something reguarding dns done by the people who sold us our domain name. We have a valid domain name and one of those prefix names. www.mpseast.com and mail.mpseast.com they both point to our router.
Right now the zimbrahost name is localhost.localdomain. I am wondering what I have to do to send and recieve mail as firstname.lastname@example.org?
Under the DNS tab in Network configuration we have :
Hostname = localhost.localdomain
Primary DNS = DNS server on our classroom network
Secondary DNS= 188.8.131.52 known good dns in the town next to us
Teritary DNS = blank
DNS search path= localdomain
thanks for the help.. I am sorry if I did not give you the information needed. We are totaly new at this.
