What are connection modes to a Zimbra Server?

​​​​​What are connection modes to a Zimbra Server​?

Answer:

There are two modes to connect to a Zimbra server, Regular mode and Admin User mode.

  1. In regular user mode, we need access to SOAP web services, which are typically the following:
    1. ​ on port 80 if it is an HTTP connection;
    2. on port 443 if an HTTPS connection.
  2. In admin user mode, we also need access to SOAP web services, typically:
    1. ​On port 80 and 7071 if the Zimbra URL is HTTP;​
    2. On port 443 and 7071 if the Zimbra URL is HTTPS.

You need to connect using both ports; some operations will go over the admin port, while others will go over the regular port.

Note: For step-by-step migration instructions, refer to the migration guide specific to your scenario. The guides, with Zimbra as a Source, can be found on our Community site, under Migration Guides/Mailbox Migrations.
