    My server is set up and running. I can login internally using http://192.168.1.xx:8080.

    Can anyone tell me how to login from an external ip address? I have opened the 8080 port on my router. I assumed I could just login through http://71.xx.xx.xx:8080. Is that not the case? Or do I need to change some router settings.

    I don't want to forward the root domain ( dns just yet, if possible.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    BTW, the new version of ISPConfig looks great.

    You must configure your router to forward port 8080 to your ISPConfig server - just opening the port is not enough.
    BTW, are you referring to ISPConfig 2 or 3? Because you posted this in the ISPConfig 2 forum, but port 8080 is used by ISPConfig 3, not 2.

    External ip

    You are correct on both counts. I have forwarded 8080 to my server and I am using ISPConfig 3. My apologies for posting in the wrong forum.

    I will post this to the correct forum.
