Ok so my problem has been, I've never been able to actually complete this step. When switching to Static IP, I end up losing network access.
My router is a D-Link DIR-655 currently set to DHCP and I believe that my IP is static because it hasn't changed for atleast two weeks even with power outages and such. Can I still perform this step in the server setup with DHCP enabled on the router or would I have to staticly assign the IPs to all my devices on the network? (something I've never done before but have researched)
Ok in Yast it asks me to setup an IP address. In the demo it shows 192.168.0.100 My question is: For that field am I setting the IP assigned for the router or my actual IP assigned from the ISP?
For Subnet Mask I always set 255.255.255.0 but after I saved settings and go back, the fielded is replaced with /24 I also saw the same thing while reading through the ISPConfig3 manual. Is this anything I should be worried about?
For hostname let's say I registered briand0713.com, would I put server1.briand0713.com in this field or could I just put anything I want in this field?
Lastly I am unsure as to what I should set for the nameservers. My problem is is that I don't exactly know where to obtain these IPs. Do I find them through my router or do I get them from my nameserver provider which is www.everydns.com
Thanks for the help
