    I followed the perfect server setup with debian etch, ispconfig, postfix, bind 9, everything is working great but my external ip address has to change to a different one, and I'm not sure where all I have to make that change on the box. I already know what changes I have to make to goddaddy, i'm just not sure what changes i have to make on the box.

    Thanks in advance

    Is your server behind a router or not?

    Yes it is (I have to have 10 characters in my reply)

    If you do not run your own name server, there has nothing to be changed. If you use the bind server on the ispconfig box, change the ip addresses in all dns records in the dns-manager.

    You should do this:

    At the Registrant put one register (dns) tipe IN A pointing to your public IP as this:

    www.yourdomain.dom IN A (IP public)

    In your router active NAT o NAPT and write port 80 your private IP (Host ispconfig IP) example: port 80

    I hope that be usefull

    I have just made the changes in the dns manager in ispconfig.

    Also, something about godaddy, is that if you host your own nameserver they no longer give you total dns control panel (obviously) so i have ns1 and ns2 pointed to the new ip now.

    I'll let you know how everything else worked (mail, etc) with the new ip change tomorrow when it propagates from godaddy, but thanks for your help, i didn't know if i would have to edit some files in /etc/bind9 manually or not.

    Thanks :)

    What if not only the external IP address changes, but the internal one as well? (new router so going from to 10.x.x.x for example?)
