So i manage to install Unbutu 6.10 and ispconfig on a old machine that i have (PIII 800 512 meg 180g hd etc...) Everything went perfectly well installing ispconfig following instruction of The Perfect setting of Ispconfig on a Ubuntu server.........................)

    I have a domain name enxxxxxxxxxxxx.ca

    My registar have register my name server pointing to my static ip address.

    The server use internal adress of my router 192.168.2.xxx, i have open the port 21 thru 110 on my router to point out to my internal ip address. So far everything is working perfectly when i type my domain name enxxxxxxx.ca i see a page on the web.

    The problem is when i create a customer (my friend in fact) and is web site on ISPconfig, and i try to reach is web site nothing append.

    He has in fact register my nameserver to is registar, pointing to my server ns1.enxxxxxxxxxx.ca and ns2.enxxxxxxxxxxx.ca

    Don't you see anything?
    I am also a linux newbie with ISPConfig installed on my server. And had an simular problem in the beginning. My other site was pointing to an shared ip adress. That was what I saw on the net.

    That was solved with the use of the "create dns" on the basis tab. did you enable that one.

    Please run
    dig yourfriendsdomain.com
    Does it point to the correct IP address?

    The gaetway is queried if your local DNS server is not authoritive for the domain.

    There's no answer section, so there's no A record for the domain. Please create one, and make it point to a public IP address, not a local one.
