Go to services: Secure HTTP. Listen IP addresses and ports. Note, this doesn't work on OS X.

That only makes the server listen to a specific ip-adress !!
I would like it to listen to a specific name instead, namely the servers own internetadress, if that is possible because I run other servers on the same SuSe-machine ....

You need to bind it to a specific IP address, then adjust your DNS entries to match https://mail.xxx.xx.xxx to only that IP address.

It sounds like DNS is what you need to adjust.

Is this what you are asking?

Hope this helps,
BP

So bind it to the address that matches your DNS record!

Please also be aware, you can only have one process listening on a port at a time. So if you have KMS listening on port 443 (HTTPS) of your.ip.add.ress, then another process, like IIS cannot grab that port.

One process, one IP address, one port

It seems that I have to install a DNS-Server on my network then in order to get this working, if I have understood it right ??
I will try to do that, but I had hoped that it would have been possible to make kms answering those requests by itself ..

Discrimination by the name in host headers is not possible when using HTTPS (in any server); this is a consequence of the design of HTTPS.

When using a normal web server and HTTP, host headers can be used, but the web server in Kerio is independant of any other web server and so the facility cannot be used there either.

Not necessarily. You can set it up with in your current DNS settings (where ever they may be). If you already have a record for 'mydomain.com' that resolves to IP 192.155.155.1 then you can add 'mail.mydomain.com' (this will be your https://mail.xxx.xx.xxx example) and have it resolve to IP 192.155.155.2 In the services of KMS admin turn off HTTP and make HTTPS active.

Now, go to your web browser and enter https://mail.mydomain.com

This setup assumes you have at least 2 WAN IP's
