Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 218859
Exchange URL:PORT ignores PORT during usage
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:10:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The URL of the Exchange server correctly uses the port number from the URL when
clicking "Authenticate" during the setup, but not during actual usage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Evolution 126.96.36.199 from these RPMS:
# rpm -qa |grep evolution
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup Exchange server to listen on https requests on an odd port like 456.
2. Create a new Exchange account within Evolution using a URL like:
3. The authenticate test will work fine. Complete the setup.
1. Try to browse any folder. You'll get an error and prompt for password.
2. tcpdump shows that requests are being sent to the Exchange server on port
443, the default for an HTTPS connection.
1. It should work! :)
2. This was not broken in Evolution 2.0.4 in FC3.
I added a workaround with:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -j DNAT -d owa.server.local -p tcp --dport 443
Now everything works great! :)
Is this problem still present on Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Yes. I am now running rawhide and I have to keep the same iptables port forward
in to make it work. I did not, however, recreate the exchange account when I
upgraded which I will try and report back. Is there anything I can send that
would help in correcting this error? I'm willing to hop into the source,
although I haven't seen any of the source to Evolution and would probably need a
while to get up to speed. Thanks. :)
Thanks for responding.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Is this bug still present on Fedora 11 or later?
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
