    Hello everybody,
    I've recently decided to completely reformat my old desktop and install Centos on it to create The Perfect Server. One thing that I did differently than specified in that guide was to leave DHCP enabled in the setup process. So, I followed that guide, got ISPConfig 3 up and running, and now here's my question: How do I link a domain that I purchased (from to my ISPConfig3 control panel? What I've done so far is use fatcow's DNS tool to map my home external ip address ( to the purchased domain. So now when I go to I get the Apache index page. That's great! But the only way that I can access ISPConfig3 is by typing my internal ip address ( followed by :8080. What needs to be configured to make ISPConfig3 accessible through my purchased domain? I hope this isn't too confusing, I couldn't find anything on the forums that dealt with this specifically. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    You must configure your router to forward port 8080 to your server.
