Please read http://support.kerio.com/kb/131. Although it's for KWF, it's generally applicable to any firewall you might have.

You should probably have internal DNS set up.

MacPro:~ admin$ sudo changeip -checkhostname
Password:

Primary address = 192.168.0.200

Current HostName = MacPro.macrecycling.co.uk
DNS HostName = MacPro.macrecycling.co.uk

The names match. There is nothing to change.

Hi there.

Can you access your Kerio Webmail from your internal network?

e.g. http://192.168.0.200/

Also, can you access via a short DNS name?
(depends on the shortname you've setup in your DNS).

e.g. http://mail/

If those are working, you are half way there. You may now need to get your fully qualified domain names (FQDN) resolution sorted out.

Now, on a client machine, try a command such as this, to tell you what your DNS is giving out. On a Mac, do this from a Terminal window..

nslookup mail

nslookup mail.exampledomain.co.uk

Or use the Network Utility on the Mac, for the same purpose.

If all is working well, both will give you the IP address of your mail server, plus they should mention your DNS server IP too.

If the first one is working, and not the second, it suggests your need some extra DNS records.

Try the Mac OS X 10.5 Server Administration Manual, available online for some basic info:
http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=answerlink&url=ht tp%3A%2F%2Fmanuals.info.apple.com%2Fen_US%2FServer_Administr ation_v10.5.pdf&answerid=16777220&src=support_site.m anuals.search

Page 190 (ish) gives a simple example, although it doesn't explain doing a Fully Qualified Domain Name.

Also this URL may help you with understanding DNS a little more:
http://www.macenterprise.org/macworld-2008-slides/enterprise -track/IT814-DNSdemystified_part3.pdf

(make sure your fully qualified domain names have a trailing period in your DNS records).

e.g. mail.exampledomain.co.uk.
(not mail.exampledomain.co.uk)

This document probably has the most comprehensive details I could find quickly for you:

http://images.apple.com/server/macosx/docs/Network_Services_ Admin_v10.5_2nd_Ed.pdf

There are probably other documents out there that explain the DNS setup procedure in more step by step detail, giving more/better examples, but these should help give you some ideas. Especially that last PDF.

Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Derek

PS Don't forget to give your Thread titles meaningful names, as it helps others recognize what your thread is about, and they can probably offer more helpful info quicker Smile.
