webmail over port 81 issue
 
Hi All!!!!!

A number of my users are not able to access webmail (from their work) because they're behind a firewall that does not allow http(s) over port 81.

Is there a way to make this work over the default 443 port?

I know that I probably have to sacrifice the possibility of running https pages on regular websites, but that's ok.

On the other hand, I know that Apache 2.x can be configured to redirect incoming traffic to another URL and maybe even a different port...

Any help would be appreciated!

Regards,
Peter

The easiest solution would be to create a web site in ISPConfig, e.g. webmail.example.com, and then to install a web mail software like Uebimiau or Squirrelmail in it.

Hi Falco,

This probably is the best way... Even users will like it! As soon as I get access to my provider's DNS editor I will follow your suggestion.

Thanks!

Kind regards,
Peter

Any chance of a step-by-step set of instructions for that?

Yeah, I can't find step-by-step instructions too... From ISPConfig' site has a webmail.zip file which contains 3 files:

webmail.tar.gz
nav.inc.php << what can do this file?
package.inc << and this???

But I'm lucky... because UebiMiau has a Bulgarian translation :D

Dont unpack the webmail.pkg file! Its in zip format, but is named .pkg because you should not unpack it! Just upload the .pkg file with the update function and uebimiau installs automatically.

Yes, but if you do that, isn't it installed on the admin URL on port 81? That's not accessible through many firewalls - including the one where I'm working today!

Try using reverse proxying in apache. internet port 80 -> apache -> localhost:81 -> ispconfig.
But i think u need to do some fixes with url and things like that in ispconfig

You can run the ISPConfig apache webserver on port 80 or 443 too, but then you will need another IP that is assigned only to the ISPConfig apache webserver.

I've tried to do that, but without any success. For some reason, I've not managed to do it. I got a separate IP address, but didn't manage to get Apache2 and Apache1 to stick to their own IP and ports.

I tried and tried, but at the point of http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...=7628#post7628 I gave up. I couldn't get it to work.
