I am using the demo version of Kerio right now, but I assume the full version would have the same issues.

I am trying to set up a server that will be accessed only by other computers on the LAN. The Kerio server is currently running on a machine with the internal ip address of 192.168.1.2. I am able to access the browser client from the local machine, but I am unable to access it from any other machines on the network.

I have tried adding a domain called 192.168.1.2, I have added port forwarding for my router for ports 8080 (I changed the Kerio default from 80 to 8080 just in case) to the machine running Kerio, but nothing seems to work. If I am on the machine running Kerio, I can access the browser client with http://localhost:8080 or http://192.168.1.2:8080, but it doesn't seem to work from anywhere else.

I would appreciate any help that can be offered regarding this matter. Thank you!

I hate to say it, but you have some network problems. DNS needs to be setup so that the server resolves a name to itself and everyone else.

The DNS is provided by my modem right now. I guess I'm a little confused as to how that factors in. I'm just trying to access the web client from another computer on the network.

I apologize for being somewhat ignorant regarding these issues.

Oh, okay. You should just be able to use a web browser to access Kerio's webmail interface.

Is your other computer on the same lan and have the same 192.168.1.X address? Is there a firewall on the server?

Yes, the computer running Kerio is 192.168.1.2 and I have tried accessing the browser client from a computer at 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.4 and both computers just display an "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message.

I checked Network Neighborhood and all three computers can see each other and I can access shared files.

Now, I might be confused for the domain settings. I have localhost set as my primary domain in Kerio, but I also created a couple other domains like 192.168.1.2 just to see if that was the problem.

Okay, here is the resolution for anyone who might have the same issue. I should have checked this from the start, but it appears that my windows firwall was blocking the port. Normally Windows Firewall will ask me if I want to allow a program to access the internet, but I guess since I was only using it on my LAN, it never asked. I went into the Windows Firewall and added an exception for the port and it is working now.

Thank you for working through this problem with me HoosierMac. I appreciate the help.
