ANSWER: This is what show in my DNS settings:
BIND User root
BIND Group bind
BIND zonefiles directory /etc/bind
BIND named.conf path /etc/bind/named.conf

What should it be changed to?
Don't need to change anything. I check the guide you used and it doesn't use chrooted BIND. So, it's fine, don't change anything here.

Last but not least, don't forget to change the named.conf according to your setting.
Especially, in line :

listen-on port 53 {;};

allow-query { localhost; };

localhost and needs to be changed or added with the ip or ip range that is allowed to query your server (this means which address can access your name server).
I don't know your setting because it seems you're on LAN. I use VPS so I changed the localhost and to { any; }; which means that all address can access it.

ANSWER: named.conf has no line that says anything about "Listen" or "allow-query" It only has:

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";
include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";
include "/etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones";
Check in named.conf.options or named.conf.default-zones, the line should be there somewhere. Maybe this is the problem, because you said Forbidden error, that is maybe because the access is limited for your nameserver.

Is the router already set up to forward all request at port 80 (http) to your local server? I don't know exactly how to do this, but I think you already did this. Because you also use it as nameserver, maybe port 53 must be forwarded also (don't know for sure, needs a confirmation if anyone know this)

There are 2 way to set your DNS :
1. From your domain provider :
You will set your A Record, NS, MX etc from your domain provider. In ISPConfig you only need to create client and site, don't need DNS. If you change the A Record to your IP then that means you're using this method
2. From your ISPConfig 3 server :
This is what you use if you follow the Own Nameserver guide. In your domain provider, actually what you need to set up is only NS record (stands for Name Server record). And then you create A Record, NS, MX etc from ISPConfig server.

If you already follow the guide for number 2 and it still didn't work, can you tell me what did you create in DNS section of ISPConfig 3 server?
