I had installed Workspace on a Windows Server 2008 with only WSUS running on IIS and using totally different ports than Workspace which was using the standard port 80 and 443.

Then I had to create a new site in IIS that was also using port 80 and 443 but that obviously wasn't going to work without some modifications. I tried several things but this was what I did (shutdown Workspace first):

1. Add another IP address to the Windows Server (since it's a VM then I added another Ethernet interface so that I could disable automatic registration in DNS for the new interface). I then made sure that the original interface was still the primary interface in Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Advanced Settings.

2. Edited C:\Program Files (x86)\Kerio\Workspace\Tomcat\conf\server.xml with the instructions from this post http:// r/. It wasn't there I got the information when I did it, but that doesn't matter. I added address=[newip] to the three Connector lines in my config.

3. I then followed instructions 1-9 on this page http:// on-the-same-machine to tell IIS to only listen to the original IP address. If I didn't, then IIS would complain if I tried to start the new site, even thought it had been bound the the right IP adress (the one Workspace wasn't using).

4. Updated DNS to reflect the changes.

I restarted the server and everything worked! This is of course not supported by Kerio but it works and is not really a hack, since we're just using features in the webserver that Kerio doesn't expose in the Workspace GUI. It would of couse be nice to be able to configure this in an easier way! The same goes for SSL certificates that requires intermediate certificates, but that's another story Smile.

I hope that this can help someone else.

EDIT: It seems like it's the same for Connect: http:// s-different-ip-s/
