How to set DNS/NS correctly?
Firstly, this is for a personal website. This is the first time that I've set up a server and am trying to host a site myself.
All router settings seems fine:
- I'm able to access ISPConfig via port 8080 (both inside and outside the network).
- I'm able to SSH into the server using PuTTY (both inside and outside the network).
- I'm able to access SquirrelMail inside the network.
In ISPConfig, I have created the Client/Domain/Website/FTP user.
I'm not able to FTP into the server with Filezilla or see any of the default index.html pages when I enter the domain name. I figure that it's probably the settings/configuration I have set in GoDaddy and DNSExit.
In GoDaddy, I've set the 4 nameservers pointing to DNSExit:
In DNSExit I have the hostname pointing to the home router's IP Address.
Based on what I know so far, it seems like everything is pointing correctly, so I'm stumped and do not understand why I'm not able to access the site or FTP to the site.
Does anyone have any pointers, guidance, or suggestions?

Usually with an A record pointing to your IP should work.
Check port 80 and 21 tcp in your router and
Also try to check if apache y pure-ftp are running. You can check this with:

Thank you pititis for your quick reply!
I'm not sure of a few things: how to check port 80 and 21 in the router/server and what am I checking for?
Hehehe, the same goes for checking apache and pure-ftp.
I tried restarting apache2:
root@ubuntu:/# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf:
AddType requires at least two arguments, a mime type followed by one or more file extensions
Action 'configtest' failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.
I then tried restarting pure-ftpd:
root@ubuntu:/# /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart
Restarting ftp server: Running: /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-mysql-virtualchroot -l mysql:/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf -l pam -H -Y 1 -E -8 UTF-8 -b -O clf:/var/log/pure-ftpd/transfer.log -D -A -u 1000 -B
Based on this netstat output, I think they're running:
root@ubuntu:/# netstat -tlpen

So, does this look correct?

After a lot of help from pititis, here are the steps taken to solve the problem:
I followed instructions from http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/arc...p/t-52226.html
. I opened the ports in the router, added the port range to the firewall in IPConfig (System > Firewall), enabled the PassivePortRange on the server (using the links above) and it seems that I can access everything now!
Also, in Filezilla, I was setting the port to 22 (like how I did for SSH with PuTTY). This was incorrect -- it needed to be blank and set to normal FTP with explicit TLS.
Many thanks HowToForge and Many many thanks pititis!

FTP not working again...
After shutting off the computer for a little over a week, I'm again having some issues with FTP'ing into the machine from Filezilla.
Status: Resolving address of site.domainName
Status: Connecting to ipAddressOfMachine:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
Response: 220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
Response: 220-Local time is now 13:07. Server port: 21.
Response: 220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
Response: 220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
Response: 220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Command: AUTH TLS
Response: 234 AUTH TLS OK.
Status: Initializing TLS...
Error: Could not connect to server
My Filezilla settings:
Protocol: FTP - File Transfer Protocol
Encryption: Require explicit FTP over TLS
Logon Type: Normal
Under the Advanced type, I've tried setting the OS to both Autodetect and to Unix.
How to tell what is wrong, and how to go about fixing it?

Do you have many special chars in your password? It might be that FileZilla has problems with it (just had this yesterday...).
