    I have two pc, both are connect at one router/modem (192.168.1.1)

    pc 1 is a server (ubuntu 12.04 + ispconfig 3)

    pc2 is a desktop pc (with win xp)

    pc1
    in /etc/hosts I have
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.100 hostub

    in /etc/network/interfaces
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.1.100
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.1.0
    broadcast 192.168.1.255
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    dns-nameservers 127.0.0.1 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

    from pc2 for connect at ispconfg I use
    https://192.168.1.100:8080

    see that I use the server only for test and not must be visible externally,
    how can create sites with ispconfig and what write in the url of the 2nd pc
    for to see the sites?

    You can use "fake" domain names for your sites like a domain ending .int for internal so you create sites with names like mywebsite.int in ispconfig. Then edit the hosts file on your windows xp computer (a file wh that name exists on all major operating systems like all windows versions, mac os and linux and add records like:

    192.168.1.100 mywebsite.int

    in that file. You can access the sites then from your xp desktop by entering mydomain.int in the browser url field.

    you want said mywebsite.int ?

    I does so, in the xp's file hosts, add
    192.168.1.100 site.int

    and can see the site if write site.int; I not add nothing in the ispconfig site because this is the default server's domain name setting (etc/hostname)


    but if I add a site with ispconfig, example site1.int, for to see I must
    add in the xp's hosts file also this site ?
    192.168.1.100 site1.int

    so work
    so for every site that I add with ispconfig I must change the file hosts under xp? or is there a tips?

    Yes, unless you set up a local DNS server and configure your client PCs to use this DNS server as the primary one.

    in my pc win xp in the file host now I have
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.1.100 site.int

    when I write in the url site.int ok I see the site of 2nd pc (server)

    if I create 2 subsites example:
    x1.site.int
    x2.site.int
    which is the solution for not add
    192.168.1.100 x1.site.int
    192.168.1.100 x2.site.int
    in the pc client?

    is always this or can do all directly with ispconfig?
