    I have found some problems regarding the DNS (See and would like to host my DNS service for my home network in a remote server (Debian Sarge with ISPConfig installed and working).

    1. I wanted to host a DNS Service in a remote server with ISPConfig 2.2.9 working (with two static IPs) and then point them to my home network with only one static IP. What are the configurations that I need to change in the ISPConfig to accomplish that?

    2. I read about MyDNS and MyDNSConfig by Falko and whether they could replace BIND9 with ISPConfig? Or there is any tweaks?

    Thank you.

    1) Just create primary DNS records for your domains in ISPConfig, then go to your domain registrar and set your ISPConfig server as authoritive server for the domains.

    2) The DNS manager module does everything then MyDNSConfig does, just with bind and not myDNS. Also mydnsconfig can not be installed on the smae server then ISPConfig 2 as it is the DNS management module for the next generation of ISPConfig (ISPConfig 3).

    1. That is already done. My question is how can the remote server point to my home server. Let me explain. I have registered with the two DNS nameservers of the remote server with ISPConfig. Now when people try to connect to the in browser, I want them to reach my home server (also with ISPConfig) instead. How can that be achieved with DNS Manager?

    2. I read the mydns forum and now it became clear from Falko and your replies. Thanks again.
