Hi,
I'm trying to set up laptops with the KOC for outlook to connect to our mailserver passing our firewall.
We don't have a domain, just a IP for internet connection. When i install everything to a local IP (mailserver) everything works but of coarse not when the laptop is connected from the outside, If i put the internet IP in the KOC config, it all works fine from the outside but not from the inside. We have a windows server and is DNS server. How to work around this???

Greetings

What you should do is not put an IP address in the configuration, but a hostname (such as 'mailserver.domain.com').

Internally you can control the DNS response and you should point it towards the internal IP address of the server. On the internet you should register the same (sub)domain and let it point to the external IP address of the server.

Thank you,
But before i register domains, is there not a way to set up this in for example the hosts file.
I tried but doesn't work, i tried :
Hosts file: (on server and KFW)

213.201.150.190 192.168.47.6
(IP internet con.) (IP internal (web)mail server KMS)

Is there a way to let it work? (when i type the ip number in ie there is a meassage that the connection was refused? (KFW messages)

can somebody help me with this

The hosts file can only translate a hostname to an IP address. Not an IP address to another IP address. (An IP address doesn't need translating so the hosts file or DNS server are never queried.)

What you need is one name/address in the laptop's Kerio configuration that points two different addresses when you are inside or outside the companies LAN. You can never achieve this by doing 'something clever and simple' on the laptop itself (as far as I know). There simply does not exist a sort of hosts file that redirects user based on the current location of the laptop.

(The simplest solution I think would be to make two Outlook profiles for the same user: one for inside and one for outside.)

What port does Kerio MAPI use? I would love to setup our road warriors with full Outlook access to the mail server.
Thanks,
