I've managed to install ISPConfig 2 and make it work. I have questions regarding the DNS setup.
My actual scenario looks like following...
I have an server at a broadband operator company. This server, containing ISPConfig2, has the IP address (just example) '126.96.36.199'. I have registered two domain names of which one I want to use for the server itself and one that is to be a client. The intended server domain name (just example) is: 'myserverdomain.com'. The client domain name is: 'myclientdomain.com'.
I told the domain registrar, when ordering the domains, to point the DNS server IP (NS1 and NS2) to my server with the ISPConfig2 (188.8.131.52) for both domains. That is because I run my own DNS server with the ISPConfig2 setup.
My first question is...
Under 'DNS Manager' / 'DNS Entry' / 'Options'...
-What shall I enter in the fields 'Nameserver 1' and 'Nameserver 2'?
Shall I enter the IP address to the DNS server from my Service Provider (broadband company where the server is located) or shall I enter the IP address of my own DNS server (184.108.40.206)?
-How do I use the "Slave DNS" under 'DNS Manager'?
Do I need to have an external ISP provided DNS server to hold the DNS information for the domain name I want to use for the ISPConfig server itself (myserverdomain.com) or can it be handled by the DNS server that is used by ISPConfig2?
