Default Bind9,Router and ISPconfig questions ...

Hello all,

I have a cable connection, with permission to run apache,exim,bind etc, as
I pay extra every month.

I setup ISPConfig, but may have messes up a setting or two...

I will use these settings as an example.
My wide area ip is and the server is at
I opened all the needed ports, and forwarded them to in the router.

In management, server,settings I have the
IP Address as, now Im wondering if I need to
open /etc/network/interfaces and add
and change the server ip address

The server was set up with a domain I own but have not updated the
dns to point to it, I only did it to get through the install.
we can call it mydot.com
I called the server server1.mydot.com, thinking that the servers
domain didnt matter, as once I was comfortable with ISPConfig I would
add the virtual domain myother.com as this is the important one.
So I guess Im asking, does the servers main domain have to be "real and setup" for any other virtual domains to work ?

Thanks !

1) No, you dont have to add your external IP if you use a router.

You will have to use your internal IP for websites and your external IP for DNS records in the ISPConfig DNS-Manager.

2) Yes. The sever uses this domain as sender address for sending mails. If it does not exist, most mailservers will refuse the delivery of your emails.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
