I am trying to setup a test server to make sure everything is working correctly before switching out some windows servers for mail and dns. I am trying to test with a fake domain on a test network before taking it to a live test before changing my main domain over to this setup. When I follow all steps on perfect server ubuntu 11.10 and try to resolve on internal network using the IP as my dns on sepperate workstation I am unable to ping to hostname. I want to make sure this is all working prior to making it a live test, I have tried to add dns records into the server after full install of ispconfig 3 and it is still nto able to ping any of the records .. mail.hostanme www.hostname
... i can get to the ispconfig control only by the ip:8080 not the hostname.
Thanks in advance to pointing me int he right direction.
