I'm trialling ISPCONFIG 184.108.40.206 Beta on Debian Lenny. I'm testing on an internal network.
I've set up one user called 'test' with the domain 'testing.com' and a mail box with the alias 'tester' and configured the DNS with A,MX, NS and PTR records pointing to 192.168.1.100. The client machine (ie the one connecting to the server) has 192.168.1.100 set as the primary DNS address and an entry in /etc/hosts pointing to 192.168.1.100.
The server has been set up for secure login and monitor reports all systems are go. So far so good.
Fire up a browser on the client machine and go to https://testing.com.8080
and we get the login page, good. Login ok, logout again.
and we get an error page,good.
and we get the default web page, good.
, default page again, good.
and we get an ftp connection, good.
Attempt to connect using Evolution and it fails to login. I am watching the server log as we do this and we can see the incoming connection being logged by the pop3d and then it comes up with Login Failed. Doubled checked user names and passwords were entered correctly by typing them in again on both server and client still no luck.
So we tried webmail (https://testing.com/webmail
) the squirrelmail page pops up but again the login credentials fail to work and again I can see the events being logged on the server.
I am at loss as to why the mail server is rejecting these logins. Can any one please point me in the right direction to look for a solution. Thanks
