I know this is a DUMB question but for clarification:
What is the external IP address of my router and where is it used, if at all?

Is 188.8.131.52 my external IP address?
I am trying to host albertbrinson.com on my ubuntu 9.04 ispconfig2 server.
I had it set up to where I got "Welcome to albertbrinson.com" but it was not accessable outside of my LAN.
How do I get it out onto the Internet (WAN)?
