After the installation and restart of the grommunio appliance, the server displays the grommunio cui (console user interface).
The initial root password is not set (empty). When asked for the password, simply confirm with “Enter”.
To configure grommunio, please proceed as follows:
- Set a self-defined root password.
- Set an IP address, a host name and DNS server. If you are using DHCP (e.g. for test purposes – it is at least recommended to use static DHCP reservations because of the DNS entries), this part can be skipped.
- After this basic configuration has been carried out, grommunio-setup can be executed to take over the last steps.
- To start grommunio-setup, please use either the grommunio cui or any other terminal of the appliance.
SSH is activated by default, so grommunio-setup can also be carried out via remote SSH.
Finally start grommunio-setup as user root and follow the instructions of the interactively requested information.
For smooth operation, the grommunio appliance opens various ports so that clients can access it. Please note that the following ports are open by default:
- 25 (smtp)
- 80 (http)
- 110 (pop3)
- 143 (imap)
- 993 (imaps)
- 995 (pop3s)
- 8080 (admin)
