Your server has two network cards, one having the DSL line. But why then do you need another router (D-Link)?

Internall I can run everything smoothly, but from the outside I can not.
I guess it's either a problem with the DNS records of, or you haven't properly enabled port forwarding on your router (but to know better I have to fully understand your network setup first -> why do you have another router (D-Link)).
