Zimbra 8.6 - Use Port 443 only for Active Sync, but disable Webclient Access?

Postby christophh » Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:30 am

Hello everybody,


in our Zimbra  8.6 Single Server Installation we opend Port 443 from external to be able to use Active Sync for Mobile Devices.


But by doing this, everybody is able to Login to Webaccess via Internet, because it is the same Port (Port 443).


Proxy is enabled, so intern we can ouse Port 8443 to Access Webmail, an from external, wie use 443.


Is there a way tu use two different ports for Active Sync and for Webmail? Active Sync is already enabled only to that kind of users, who should be able to use this.


And for webmail It souldn´t be possible for every user to remote login to his Mailaccount via internet.



Regards,


Christoph

Hi Christoph,

we managed to achieve what you are asking for using a workaround. We used an external Apache reverse proxy that listens on port 443 and permits connections to /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync URL (the one used by Active Sync devices) and blocks all other URLS (including "/"), so webmail access is blocked.
