  • Hi Nick,

    Yes, that is how we installed it last time, but it didn't work. The program installed without error, but no web interface for output was ever present. A few people looked at it and made various comments that were beyond me but seemed to mean it was screwed up and not currently usable as is on COS. I had to give up and use vnstat.

    Thanks,
    Drew

  • Hi Nick,

    My domain is whisperingwoods.org as you found. I do have CNAME records setup for www, mail, and ftp. As noted, this all used to work fine before I changed ISPs. A port scanner to any of those alias shows the relevant ports (110 and 25?) as open. So I am not sure what is wrong.

    Where are you finding that I have no CNAME record?

    Thanks!

  • Thanks Nick. That was the initial suggestion from quite a few, but no one could figure out how to get it installed.

    Fighting an even bigger problem right now - my email stopped working except when on the local network...wife isn't happy.

  • Hi Nick,

    I do not understand your question. This is a simple setup that has worked until now. This is unrelated to port 25...my family cannot receive POP or zarafa email unless they are on the local LAN. This used to work fine; its just a regular POP3 setup on mail.mydomain.com and 110.

    Can you clarify your question?

    Thanks,
    Drew

  • I cannot receive phone mail offline (over cellular. local wifi OK)

    Hi Friends,

    Recently I found that my family and I are unable to get cell phone email (either Zarafa or regular POP) when away from the house. When in the house on local wifi, all is fine. Away, nada. I can't connect to modify the account either... I did change ISPs to AT&T recently, and now have the whole house on cellular data. (Ouch! $$$$) I'm using a Cradlepoint LTE modem in non-NAT mode, and I am on a static IP with AT&T.

    I assumed this was some blocked port issue, but 25, 110, and the usual suspects seem OK when checked with a port scanner. Isn't that a valid test? What am I missing?

    Any hints to troubleshoot this? My wife is very unhappy with my IT services :-(

    Many Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the help. It's definitely no-one on WiFi, I'm too remote for access and I can detect people driving up to the house. Yes, Clearos is my DHCP server,and they are mapped by MAC so I can identify all devices by IP address alone. But none of those devices are turned on at the time of high data use I spotted. So I don't know if I have an occasional break in or some legit server use.

    I don't want to restrict by time as this would kill email hosting.

    I'm not seeing how vnstat tells me IP addresses. I was hoping for an app to help with this. I am not familiar enough with packet sniffing and so forth for that to work well for me.

    Thanks,
    Drew

  • Cannot receive email when off wifi

    Hi Friends,

    I've been using zarafa community for sometime with success, both using Outlook on the desktop, and on Android phones using an Exchange account. Recently, it stopped working, only on the Android phones, and only over the air. No mail until I get home on wi-fi, then it all pops through. If I try to modify the account over the air, the phone tells me it couldn't reach the exchange server.

    I've made no changes to zarafa that I know of. I did change ISPs a month ago, and I don;t know if the problem coincides with that or not. I can scam port 443 and that appears open; is that the correct test? Did a zarafa update change something?

    Any hints to troubleshoot this? The wife is unhappy with my IT services :-(

    Thanks!

    Stolen bandwidth? How to find?

    Hi Friends,

    I recently installed vnstat to find how much bandwidth I am using. (...expensive metered cellular LTE bandwidth). I found the server is racking up quite a bit more than the 4 PCs attached to it. And, the biggest user (about 1 G in an hour) has been often at 4-5 AM when all the PCs are off. How would I go about finding out what task (or intruder) is doing this?

    I just got a $1000 monthly cellular bill for using 60G. I can account for perhaps 20G. It's critical that I figure this out quickly!

    Thanks!
