Running Kerio Connect 7.4.3 on OS X 10.6.8 Server.

Question:
Does Kerio require any of the services listed under:
Server Admin -> Settings -> Services Tab ?

There are a bunch of services turned on that we do not use, and I would like to turn them off unless Kerio requires them to work. Is there a list of services that Kerio requires are active in OS X Server?

Thanks for your time.

What do you mean by "require"? You can stop all the services if you want, but then Kerio would be useless. Each service is important for certain type of communication (e.g. SMTP for sending/receiving e-mails, HTTP for Webmail, POP3 for receiving e-mails on old clients, LDAP for public contacts etc.)

All services are explained here: http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/adminguide/en/chap-services .html

Sorry for not being clear. I am not asking about the Kerio services options from the Kerio Admin. I am referring specifically to the OSX Server Services which you can access by launching -> Server Admin -> Settings -> Services.

I was not clear on whether Kerio Connect relies on any of the OSX Server services or not? It turns out that it probably does not, because I turned off the following OSX Server Services and Kerio is still working.

Services:
Address Book
iChat
iCal
Push Notification
MySQL
Software Updates

Interestingly enough, I left on "Web Services" because I am afraid you would not be able to access Kerio Web Mail without web services running under OSX Server.

Thanks for your time!

Kerio Connect does not rely on OS X services to work, per se. But if your OS X server hosts DNS for your network or doubles as a firewall, then you'll obviously need to have those services running.
