GMS and Web-Access

Hi,

GMS and GW WebAccess are two services which are mostly used from outside
clients.

I plan to run both services on one host. Because I am a lazy man I ask
here for some expirience from others. Where are the problems, the hooks
and what is the best to go around them?

The obvious problem is that by default they fight for the same TCP
Port(s), and using alternate prts is at least inconvenient (Webaccess)
for the users, and depending on your devices, impossible in GMS (as
there are devices out there that require standard HTTPS port 443).

Yes, Ports can be a problem but I think this can be done by change the
Web-Mail port (and let the default setting at the GMS because the most
ignorant 'smart phones' are not configurable 😉 and have links from our
main web page to Web-Mail or provisioning bookmarks. An other possible
way is to use a reverse proxy in front of the Web-Mail.

Do you think that the main applications (GMS and Web-Mail) can be
installed side by side? Or are there configuration options which do
overwrite another?

It certainly can be done, but besides being unsupported, I would
*strongly* advice against it. These days, there is hardly a valid reason
to ever installed two services that fight for the same ressources on the
same OS.

I agree, with the caveat that "These days" assumes virtualized, and even if
running separate boxes, this one could easily be virtualized to host these
two services as their own separate guests/containers.
