Ok, this is the part that gets me. Port forwarding is on in the router for a number of ports that I would need for the server to operate (i.e., 21-ftp,22-ssh,25-smtp, etc. this includes 80 for http:// and 8080) Still no go? So this I am still stumped on.
The answer for DNS helped a bit, except one item. Do I use the two DNS ips assigned by my ISP for DNS? They are of course the same, except one ends in 51 and the other 52. Or do I use the single public modem IP, in which case their is only one. My nameservers I created myself at my domain registrar, godaddy.
They are accepted (by godaddy) using the public modem ip and the ISP provider's two DNS ips, using ns1.example.com, and ns2.example.com.
Much appreciate your time!
