Question DNS Issues

Hi

I need some help with DNS (not very good with DNS literally a newbie), this is really confusing for me. I am using third party DNS service at the moment and I do not want to use my own DNS, as I only have one live IP address & aslo some other reasons.

But at the same time I would like to use a ISPconfig control panel for my webserver & mail server.

At the moment the I have done all the DNS entries in the third party DNS Server which is pointing to the live IP address of my router and then from the router I have port forwardiong and NAT enabled.

Now this is where the confusion is,in the ISPconfig you need to enter name servers & other DNS entries and my nameservers are remote, I have done all the entries inthe remote DNS server.

Because I have NAT enabled can I put remote DNS entries in ISPconfig (that wont work will it?) or should i be doing something else like zone transfer(any examples).

How do i get things working. too confused.

Any help please. thanks in advance

In your scenario, you dont need the ISPConfig DNS serveices at all, so just dont use them.

Thanks for the advice, but that means i can still use other features of ISPConfig, like configure mail and give users a domain CP.

Sure you can use all features without using the ISPConfig dns manager.
