Default dynamic dns server on ISPConfig

Hi people!

I'm a newbie with Ipconfig... so be patient with me!

I've successfully installed 2.2.24 version on a ubuntu 8.04 server with a static private IP address behind a firewall that does natting to a static public IP address.

I successfully created my first domain (say "") and my first user, that can send and receive e-mail (using telaen and with an e-mail client).

First question:
I'd like to configure Ispconfig as a master dns server for this domain (for www, ftp, email services).
Can you tell me, step by step, what I have to do?

Second question (linked to the first one):
I'd like to have a Dynamic dns server for this domain so that:
- my server can assign a virtual domain (say "") to a dynamic public address (every user has ADSL connection to Internet, so his IP address changes from time to time and it's assigned randomly from his connection isp (I am NOT his connection isp)

- any user of my domain ( can have a windows utility that, when his ip address change, can tell to my server to dynamically update dns informations and to link to the new IP address.

In other words: I want to offer a dynamic dns service to my users (such as or others on Internet).
I don't want my users to use those services (even if they are free).

Can you tell me step by step how to do this?

If it is too complex (maybe impossible with ISPconfig) please tell me what I have to do: maybe a different linux distribution (I can also use another different server!) or... tell me!

Thank you very very very much!!!
