From the cgaye doc : Default IP Address

« When CommuniGate Pro receives a message, it can assign one of its local network addresses to that message, and if the SMTP module needs to send such a message, it will send it via the assigned local address. See the Domains section for more details. All other messages are sent out via the Default SMTP IP Address. Set this setting to OS Default to let the server OS pick the proper local network address itself.. »

So the answer to my first question would be to just setup the listeners as Marc explained and that's all. The setting for SMTP sending will be Defauly IP adress set to OS Default.

Is that correct ?

I have just figured how to setup cgate to listen to the different IP adresses assigned to the different domain names. But howto for sending ?

Thanks for your answer, Marcel
What if there are more than two IP adresses ? CGP is running three domain names, each one is assigned a fixed IP address.
What will be the problem if cgate is listening to all the addresses, including the ethernet one,  assigned to the DNS Server ?

Hi

I have the same setup here: Two IP addresses on a Xserve G4. I assigned the first to CGP and the second to Men and Mice DNS.

You have to set up CGP manually, to listen only to the one address (on every listener) and to send on the same address. You also have to set up DNS manually to listen only to the other address (this has to be done in the config-files, as Men and Mice Suite has no GUI for this setting).

On my old setup (replaced in the middle of 2006), I had also two IPs on the same machine but the first IP was DNS and the second was CGP.

Both variants work(ed) seamless.

Until now my DNS server is running on a different computer than cgate pro.

I wish to install Communigate Pro and the DNS Server on the same computer, configured with multiple IP addresses.

What's the best method for doing it ? Does the Ethernet IP address must be the cgate one for the licensed domain name or could it be the DNS server one ? In other words, can I assign a IP address to the cgate server from the additional IP addresses and keep the ethernet IP address for the DNS server.

DNS Server: menand mice suite
Cate : 4.2.10 - multiple domains, each one with its IP address
Platform: Biprocessor Macintosh G4

Thanks in advance for your advice and help
