    I am setting up ispconfig3 on centos 6.6 for the 1st time and have some basic questions:
    1. in the
    address, gateway and netmask is used

    and later on in "network details" - primary DNS server is set to:

    Does this mean that the server that this is installed on has 2 network cards?
    If yes, is this required?

    I.e. Can I install and use ispconfig3 on a computer connected to the
    router (which in itself connected to the cable modem)? In this scenario
    all computers are on one LAN.

    Or is it preferred way is to connect the server directly to the modem, setup
    a firewall and connect all other computers to a 2nd LAN which is connected
    to the 2nd ethernet card?

    No. The server shall have only 1 network interface.

    This is the IP of your second dns server. If you dont have 2 dns servers, you can use the free ones from google:
