Please keep in mind this is my time ever setting up a mail server, but I am having a major issue. I got a couple of user accounts setup and when I got to http://127.0.0.1 it works. But if I go to my Public IP address it doesn't work. I even tried changing the port numbers since I run an apache server as well as an ftp server. I went through every option several times and I still can't figure out what I am doing wrong. At the bottom right corner it says localhost:44337, Admin, and Ready, but my domain type says "Local (Primary)". Does this mean it's only going through the intranet and not the internet. All webmail functions work correctly through the loopback IP but nothing works with the Global (Internet Public IP). Any ideas?

What are you trying to connect to? The admin server using the admin console? If so, you need to make sure port 44337 is open on the servers firewall. I'm guessing you're trying to connect from another machine to the server hosting KMS, but your post really doesn't explain what you're trying to do Smile

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Basically I was just trying to get to the webmail from a remote internet connection to see if it worked it didn't. I did forward/allow port 44337 and tried http://75.179.174.48:44337 and that didn't work. I tried just with the ip to make sure it wasn't a dns issue. I was basically testing to see if the server was working and that's what I'm trying to fix first.

You mentioned that you have apache running on the same machine. You need to bind KMS to an IP which Apache isn't using for webmail to start.

I already thought about that and I closed apache and the stopped the apache service and then started all services in Kerio and tried it and the result was the same: nothing.

What IP address do you have the KMS HTTP service listening on?

you're trying to access the webmail client (http protocol port 80 by default) on the admin port (port 44337). you need to point the ADMIN tool to 44337, configure the http service port to a port that isn't used by apache, restart it, then point to http://server:PORTTHATYOUSET

http access to port 44337 will result in nothing useful.

also if you're using https, port is 443. also would need a mapped IP on your firewall, mapped ip to internal ip.
