can anyone help me understand why all my local ips and dns names resolve to kerio webmail?

i.e., whenever i navigate in a browser to my server's ip (10.0.1.1) or its dns name (server.xxx.com) from a client's computer, i get dumped into kerio webmail and the connection changes to secure.

even from the host (a mac osx server) "localhost" and "127.0.0.1" both resolve to a secure connection to webmail.

i need to access an admin page for a different application from the host, and because of this problem the only way i can do so is to access it through its external ip.

any help appreciated.

As for why the connection redirects to a secure web page, you probably have 'Require encrypted connection', or 'Require secure authentication' selected for the security policy. That will cause a redirect to a secure connection (HTTPS) if you connect to webmail unsecured.

You'll have to define an exception group under the security policy, and add your internal network range to it, or at least the IPs you need to use, if you want to connect insecurely.

As to why you connect to Kerio webmail instead of your other application, they're probably both binding to all available addresses. KMS probably grabs the 127.0.0.1 address first, and the second application can't bind to it. You'd have to set each application to bind to different IP addresses. In KMS, click Configuration -> Services and double click on HTTP. It's probably set to all addresses, which includes 127.0.0.1 if it's available. Edit the list of IP addresses to specify the IP address you want KMS to listen on. It's probably a good idea to do the same for HTTPS to prevent a conflict there as well.

Yes, you're right! -- http and https are set to listen on all addresses.

I'm given the option of all, 127.0.0.1, 10.0.1.1, and my external ip.

If I tell KMS to listen on the external ip, will that naf up my local users? Their ingoing and outgoing servers are set to the dns name of my host, and I have a local dns "a" record which point that name to 10.0.1.1.

On the other hand, if I instruct KMS to listen on 10.0.1.1, what about external traffic?

As long as you have NAT or port forwarding set up to point to 10.0.1.1, you should be ok. KMS will be picking up the communication on the IP you specified.

works. thanks, bro!

another solution is just to turn off http service althogether. works for me as all my clients connect securely locally and via https over the web.
