IP and DNS Setup troubles
 
Okay i have a followed the tutorial perfect fedora core 3 setup. and installed ipsconfig. I want the ispconfig server also to be the primary dns server. in the ispconfig it lists the ip as the private network ip and gives room for other ips below. when creating a new site ( actually the www part of server1.example.com) so that www.example.com is an account) do i use the internal ip or external ip and do i add the external ip to the list and use it when setting up?

Try using internal and see if it works, if not try then to use the external!

Do not enter the external IP address in the ISPConfig server preferences.

You must select the internal IP address for the website and enter the external IP address in the DNS-Manager for the domain. You can not use the create DNS and MX checkboxes in the website settings in your scenario.

So i have to manually configure MX and A records etc.

Yes, with ISPConfig's DNS Manager.

okay i guess im missing something then they have mx records , a records and ns records and my domain name has been pointed to the name servers for several days. the actual dns has been up since yesterday. how long before i can type in example.com and it actually take me there

falko 24th August 2006 17:12

Please post your real domain name here, and I'll check it.

nightsbird 28th August 2006 16:15

xg3d.com is the domain

I switched it to a ubuntu server install for speed of installation i an behind a router what ports need to be forwarded i think that may be my problem

mmidgett 28th August 2006 20:17

Ports are 80,81,443,21,25,110,22
These are the most common ports that should be forwared to your machine
80 Web
81 Web
443 SSL ?
21 FTP
25 Mail
110 Mail
22 SSH

Correct me if I am wrong.
