Connecting to ... failed:
I got all the way thru the 6 pages of installing Ubuntu, nginx, php-fpm dovecot, etc. etc. then I put in:

and I got this:
Connecting to ( || :80 ... failed: No route to host.

What's wrong???

No problem here. Maybe a routing problem of your provider?

Thank you Falko. But that is not the reason for the problem. I did the install of everything else without editing /etc/network/interfaces at the beginning.
Then just before I did the above I filled in what I thought were the IP addresses for
/etc/network/interfaces and then the screw up.
Obviously, my numbers were wrong. So could you please tell me which numbers to use?
Thank you

The Connection Information from my AT & T router are as follows:
I did not include the IPv6 information.

Internet IPv4 Address
Internet Gateway IP Address

Local Network
Gateway IPv4 Address

IP Information
Primary DNS Address
Secondary DNS Address .

IP Interface
IP Address Netmask Name eth0

Network Routing Table
Destination Netmask Gateway
Destination Netmask Gateway

Host Routing Table
Destination Netmask Gateway br0
Destination Netmask Gateway ppp0

LAN Information
Gateway IPv4 Address
Gateway Netmask

Devices on LAN
IP Address MAC Address xxxxx Name RB(me) Status Active
IP Address MAC Address xxxx Name bmc-server(ubuntu) Active

After the above problem, I reinstalled the entire thing without touching /etc/network/interfaces and everything including the ISPConfig3 downloaded and installed OK.

So please tell me the right numbers to use.

Thanks in advance

Try this:


# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
