Zimbra Admin Port
I'm trying to change the zimbra admin port from 7071 to 'something' else so I can get into it remotely without needing to fight/approach our provider.
I've tried the zmlocalconfig -e idea but it doesn't appear to commit the changes :(
Thanks in advance.
Have you restarted all the Zimbra services after you ran the localconfig command?
Ah, just checked the Z forums and found this almost-year-old thread on the issue and the resulting issue in the bugtracker. Seems it's not as easy as we'd like :(
As always, a great response webman.
Sadly, it doesn't appear so simple what with it re-writing the value back to 7071 on launch.
Shall approach the servicedesk and see what happens.
Thanks again for your time.
No problem. Although, as a workaround to achieve what you want, it looks like iptables will be able to re-route incoming packets from one port to another - Using iptables to redirect packets.
Yeah, sadly its not that I want it on another port for aestetic value, its our provider being untrusted to modify the firewall rules without screwing something else up!
Cheers nonetheless for your time.
I played with this a while back. I was on Ubuntu and had apache running and used mod_proxy to get to the zimbra from good old 80 and 443. Saves messing with Zimbra ports
