Meeting place Express and NAT outside of firewall

Can you setup meeting place express with NAT instead of putting it in DMZ. I have tried that but for external access it tries to redirect users to its internal DNS name and it does not display a web page. Any one else had this problem?

yes you can achieve this, we have done exactly the same. therefore you have to rename the meetingplace hostname to your external dns hostname e.g.

afterwards, configure the appropriat NAT entry on your PIX/ASA with dns doctoring. this will resolve the external dns hostname of your meetingplace server to the internal IP adress of meetingplace in your LAN

that's it

That was exactly what I was thinking. Did you run into issues renaming your Meetingplace server? And if so, can you describe to me how you did changed the name?

no, we do not ran into issues. however, you have to consider that you have to renew your certificates if SSL was enabled before changing the hostname.

i think there is some bug in earlier versions related to changing the name. we first upgraded to and it was no problem.

you can change the hostname of the eth0 and eth1 interface using the "net" command under CLI
