Hello there, I want to host webmail on my server mail.example.org, on a private IP address behind a smoothwall.

I have created a CNAME pointing mail.example.org to example.org, but this returns my website, not the webmail interface.

I have also defined the CNAME mail.example.org to point to mail.example.org, but this didn't work either.

Inside the Kerio program I have defined the internet name as mail.example.org, but this does not seem to resolve properly.

Could someone let me know how I fix this?

Basically I want to get to webmail on kerio on 10.1.1.1 and my websites on a different server on 10.1.1.2 -

many thanks,

Nick

You have to configure your smoothwall to do port redirection. Just configuring the DNS is not enough.

I don't know smothwall, so you will have to RTFM.

To do that, you can't use a CNAME. A CNAME is basically a shortcut to an existing A record. If your A record for example.com points to 10.1.1.2, the CNAME does an additional lookup of the A record, and as a result, resolves to the same 10.1.1.2.

To do what you want to do, you'd have to set up another A record for mail.example.com and use 10.1.1.1 as the IP address for that record.

Of course, this will only work from within your network. To get it to work from outside the network needs additional NAT rules at the firewall/gateway, and additional DNS records with the public IP addresses.

Hello, I have port forwarding set up - it's fine internally, and webmail works ok.

I have just created another A record pointing to mail.example.org, only I had to give it the IP address of the primary domain.

I have set kerio to listen on port 82. Is there anything else I need to do on the mail server?

How do you resolve internal addresses without a DNS server?

I cheat - external addresses are distributed internally by the smothwall - everything arrives at it and goes from there.

What about from internal machine to internal machine? Those shouldn't pass through the firewall.
