    Falko/Till,

    Why can't I access my email behind my router/firewall? What do I have to do to make it accessible?

    Note.
    I can do a dig and ping to suse1.mileswork.com from behind the router/firewall.
    I am also experiencing long download to my site hosted on the server.

    Thanks,
    JafFaizal

    Can you explain in more detail? IS your server in your LAN or somewhere else? Are you trying to access it from within your LAN or from outside?

    My ISPConfig server is in my LAN with a 192.168.xxx.xxx IP address. My router does the NAT 202.157.203.30 -> 192.168.xxx.xxx (the internal LAN IP address for ISPConfig).

    Yes, I want to access it within my LAN. I can ping but cannot access email using any email client from any workstation. Also too long download for website hosted on ISPConfig.

    Thanks,
    JafFaizal

    What happens if you use your server's internal IP address (192.168.xxx) in your email client instead of suse1.mileswork.com?
