Other modules / DNS setup for LAN webserver
« on: February 09, 2021, 01:28:14 pm »
Hello Forum,

I'm new to Zentyal, but definitely looked promising. Was using ClearOS till now, but as it is now, I'm unable to do 2 things right now and I need your help.

I've installed Zentyal 7 for a PC that acts as our firewall. Our ISP also gave a router, so the Network is something like this:

Code: [Select]
WWW ---> ISP Router ---> Zentyal ---> LAN PCs via DHCP
We have a few servers, we wish to reach from the outside and on a different route (local route) from the inside. Just an example:
  • If Bob wants to log in to from home, he should be coming from the ISP, so he receives the IP for from the web. He should be forwarded based on the domain name towards a specific server on the LAN.
  • Now, if Bob is in the office and want's to log on to the same webapplication, he shouldn't be going thru the internet, only Zentyal who should be forwarding Bob directly to the server on the same LAN. Right now, Bob is unable to connect, unless we hardcore tell his PC via /etc/hosts the LAN IP and domain name.

I was looking at DNS server settings (module activated) and I believe I've made the right steps
  • Added new domain ""
  • Domain IP Addresses were kept as they are (Zentyal servers External and internal IPs)
  • Under Hostname I've added "cloud" with the LAN IP address of the server (no alias)
  • Added "cloud" to Name Servers too just for good measure
  • No Mail Exchanger, TXT record or Services were added
  • Also, it is enabled to be "Dynamic domain" in the DHCP settings (dynamic domain:, static domain: Same as Dynamic Domain)

The DHCP also has the "local Zentyal DNS" set for primary nameserver (no secondary was enabled)

Now, I don't know if I've missed something, but ...... AAAAND as I was writing this post, I've figured out, that what I was missing for the LAN part to work is the "Search Domain" in the DHCP common options to "". Enabled that to and now, I can connect to the local servers. HOWEVER, not my external servers are unreachable who are installed on VPSs all round the world and reachable via the same domain. Example:,, etc.... What did I set wrong in Zenty, so every "" name is being processed locally and if not found, then does not goes on towards the net? (transparent DNS cache is enabled)

The 2nd issue is mabye the cause of the 1st one, but no matter if I forward 80, 443 ports via the firewall from the external NIC towards the LAN IP of the server, it get's ignored and Google Chrome just sais: ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE. While clearly the server is online, I can reach it now from a local PC, but not from home.

May I get a little assistance please?  ;D

Email and Groupware / Re: Shared calendar
« on: May 26, 2017, 03:17:24 pm »
OK, I've sorted out the calendar thing, but it is shame that I can create new calendars only on the SOGo web-interface.

Jabber is still bugging me. I've tried a few things and it turned out, the users can communicate, but they still can't see each other in the user list. Why?

Adding user with:
Host: hostname

It logs in, I can add users and chat with them, even if they are shown as offline. But why do I have to add them one by one manually and why do they show offline?

Hey Forum,

With Zentyal 5 how do you create a shared calendar? I wish to have a calendar shared with some users but I have no idea how to do that. I'm using Thunderbird as client.
Also Jabber... I've enabled Jabber for all the users, downloaded Pidgin, logged in with the users, but somewhy they can't see each other or send message in Pidgin. Why could that be? Do I need to create rooms first? If yes, then how do I do that? Or maybe I should use a different chat client?  :-\

Thanks in advance!


Hey Guys!

Please help me if I'm correct, but with the help of Microsoft Management Console, can I create group policy to install software on remote Windows clients in the domain? If the answer is yes, then where shall I put the exe or msi files on the servers?

Thanks in advance!


Installation and Upgrades / PPPoE function in Zentyal 5.0 ?
« on: January 05, 2017, 01:57:48 pm »
Hello Forum,

I've been shocked after coming back to Zentyal from being away for a few years and find out, PPPoE is no longer available to set up an internet connection.
Can you confirm me please that there is no option to do this anymore or if there is, then how can I resolve this issue?

Best Regards:

I don't want to teach users how to use another mailing client. Thunderbird was enough pain for me. :D Question: Is Outlook working with the server as Exchange server but without any limitations?

NVM. :) I was looking for a sollution to connect email clients other than Outlook to our Zentyal server, but as an Exchange. We already use Thunderbird so it would be optional to make it possible to work.

THanks, didn't know that. Can you suggest a good step-by-step tutorial?

Hey there All!

I think, the title tells all. I want to connect with Thunderbird to Zentyals OpenChange but as connecting to an Exchange. I have problems connecting it because IDK the EWS (Exchange Web Service ) link and Thunderbirds addon (ExQuilla) can't find it either. Any tipps?

Yes, surely. Somehow it still doesn't work. I don't know why. I think I'll just rewrite the hosts files on all the computers. Looks easier....

Any tipp why I don't have this file tree? ( /etc/zentyal/stubs/sogo/ )

As I mentioned, I have the file, but in a different place and it contains the row you are reffering to. I haven't done anything to sogo and mail before, so I don't see why didn't it create that directory order you are saying. Is that the default one?

Didn't worked. I've found the part you are reffering to, but as soon as I rewrite the hostname with the IP I want, then at login I recieve "An unhandled error occurred." error message and noone can log in. Did I do something wrong? Oh, and it stil modifies the URL to the hostname and if I change it to the IP it works.

What if I don't have any /et/zentyal/stubs/........ I have to create it?

Edit: I've found it in /usr/share/zentyal/stubs/zentyel-sogo.mas
I assume this is the same. :)

Installation and Upgrades / Re: Where did External mail recieve go?

Unfortunatelly, the fetchmail has a very problematic downside. It checks only if the mail has the "read" or "unread" flag in it. If it has "unread" then it will download the message and modify the mails flag on the source server to "read". If you tell fetchmail to keep it "unread" it will always download the message whenever it is downloaded yet or not. That's is why we can have infinite copy of our mails.

Still waiting for a good alternative. Getmail is not good, since it is scanning all the mails in the postbox. In case of 50-60 user with over 8000 mail in each postbox it is just too much.

Hy there!

I have a question. When I try to log in to SOGo webmail, then after pressing login the URL swaps to Since the clients doesn't know yet, the hostname, or domain ( we don't use AD yet, it is just planned ) I would like to tell SOGo, NOT TO SWAP the URL from the IP to the Example:
I want: https://192.168.X.X/SOGo
I don't want:

Where can I set SOGo to do this?
