hi guys, i had installed Kerio Connect 7 on SUSE Linux using VM.

I can view the web console https://192.168.1.3:4040/admin if i am inside the VM.

I can ping the VM ip address within the network, but i try to view the web console outside the VM i'm unable to view.

any ideas?

Thanks.

found the solution, i will just share hope it might help some newbie just like me.

The reason why i'm unable to view the admin web console outside the VM because i never open the ports 4040 in the firewall.

Perhaps Kerio developers will consider putting this on the wizard to open 4040 on the firewall.

i'm just stuck on how do i test an using any unregistered domain name, just to check whether the whole thing works.

let's say i will just put jjjcr<_at_>myanydomain.com, then i will plug in outlook do a test mail.

how do i do this in a test environment? any ideas? thanks.

Did you try it? I've set up test domains many times - of course you can't send from outside, but it works inside.

I have a "foobar.com" domain on my real mailserver that I use for junk testing..

Remember, your DNS has to be able to convert myanydomain.com to 192.168.1.3 ip address. I believe that jjjcr<_at_>192.168.1.3 should work.

No, DNS isn't necessary. You'd address email as usual - just telling your client where the mail server is. It knows whether that whoever<_at_>whatever.com belongs to itself or not.

Good point! Wasn't thinking about the fact the message will be sent to an already defined path to the server itself.

Thats what I get for multi-tasking all at one time.

Hi guys, thank you so much for your response.

Yes, it works locally only. Basically the communication is only between the pc and the server.

Just need to set on the outlook the SMTP and POP settings to the IP address of the VM server.

It works okay.And I set the VM to be a member of the domain as well.

pcunix, you got it. I was thinking it should be this way, but I was in doubt with myself so I did the test and i just told myself wow it works.

basically, no need for the DNS server because as what you said the path is already defined so your telling the mail client don't go anywhere just go to this address.. hehe..
