    I am new to ISPCONFIG and also pretty much a linux newbie.

    I have installed ispconfig on ubuntu fiesty using the perfect setup. I have a dsl router that does not allow loopback. So when I try to call http://xyz.com from a local IP it will error out. I am using a managed DNS for my DNS on the internet and also using a DNS name server from my ISP for the lookups. Can I set the DNS server on the ISPCONFIG box as my DNS server and then route local LAN calls for http://xyz.com to route to instead of routing to the public IP of 66.xx.xx.xx. I am using both linux and windows clients to connect to this server.

    I can access the http://xyz.com from the WAN(internet) just fine.

    I use two way
    1- use ispconfig IP as perferred DNS server [192.168.x.x]
    after you change it, don't forget to use
    ipconfig /flushdns in windows command prompt

    2- add host to file


    192.168.x.x site1.com
    192.168.x.x www.site1.com
