    Hello! I hope somebody can help me...

    Well... I follow your "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04)", and I use something like:

    After installing ISPconfig I give the same information and at the end of the installation it says I can access my ISPconfig accessing:

    But when I tri to access it from a web browser it doesn't work... Locally I only can access it pointing to the internal IP ( and I ask a friend to try the address and it don't work... He only can access my ISPconfig when write in the url: where de it's my external IP address...

    How can I do to make the available? :confused:
