Has anyone looked at http://Http://www.open-xchange.org.

A new version has just been released and is anyone interested in getting it going on SMEServer v6.X.

Thank you for the information, was not aware of this product, and looking at the fact that Novell has placed in to their distribution of Novell SUSE Linux server, it looks to be promissing.

Hey, I found this howto on Google:

"OpenXchange on Debian Sarge How-to"


It has some links to rpm/bin files that I think apply to SME 6.0.1.

I know Suse has the iSLOX connector that integrates into the commercial version of OpenExchange for sync with MicroSoft Outlook. We have used it and it works great.

I have had a look at www.open-xchange.org for a similar plugin but couldn't find one.

If your at the point of testing vinc28, could you try out this plugin from Suse. It might not work, but it would be worth a try.

Wondering if you are having any luck with this project. It looks very interesting. Is there anything I may be able to do to help?

If you think you know whats going on, you obviously have no idea whats going on!

Hi all,

Thanks for your replies.

Have looked at open-exchange and it will require a lot of work to get running on SMEServer.

This is something that could be made a part of SMEServer 7.0 as there are talks of using Centos 3.0 as a base for a new version of SMEServer.

I am still willing to try on SMEServer v6.0-1.



so close to work

Hello all.
Are there any news about getting open-xchange running on a SME 6.0.1 machine? I am trying this at the moment and got a lot of problems. ;(.
Is there anyone who may post a list of the rpms i have to install for open-xchange?
Another problem for me is where to copy the login.pl that i can access from a browser?
Copy it to /var/www/cgi-bin or create a Ibay and copy in ../ibayname/cgi-bin?

plz help anyone  :-?

I think you should create an ibay and put scripts on cgi-bin dir!

I´m looking forward OpenExchange too... watching this topic very close!! :)

thank you a lot Jader although i solved this problem after a few minutes :).
hm now i ve got other problems at installing it:
I ve looked at the howto for Redhat9
( http://sietse.net/exoops/modules/OpenXchange/ )
According to this i ve installed:

I can run:
<./configure --prefix=$OX_INSTALL \
<--with-mailjar=/usr/share/java/javamail.jar \
<--with-activationjar=/usr/share/java/activation.jar \
<--with-xercesjar=/usr/share/java/xerces.jar \
<--with-jsdkjar=/usr/share/java/serletapi3.jar \
without getting any errors. Then 'make' and 'make install'..no errors. But if i copy the 'login.pl' in the accessible /cgi-bin directory i get a 'internal server error' what indicates that there are some Perl-module missing... so far so bad ;(.
Is there anyone who got a list of perl-modules that i need or any other ideas?
i am working further on it ..

ps: sry for my english :) .. not my first language.

See http://www.linux-tip.net/cms/workshop/ox/OX_Installation_mdk92.pdf

This is for Mandrake but the fundemaentals are the same.

These are required:

perl-Convert-ASN1-0.16-4 (not concert as in the pdf above)

A Google or Cpan search should turn up any you don't have.
