    If 192.168.1.100 is the static IP of your server, your DHCP range should not include that IP. Start with 192.168.1.101 or something else.

    You have to ask your ISP if this is right. If your Internet connection is working, it probably is.

    I have 2 computers on my LAN.
    MyGateway-- Window xp pro
    akbnet-------Dual boot- (C drive Windows xp) and (G Drive Ubuntu 9.0.4)

    On MyGateway I went to change name and created Full computer Name of
    MyGateway ns192.168.1.101

    On my akbnet computer in Windows. I went to change name and created akbnet ns192.168.1.100

    I changed my DHCP range to start at 192.168.1.103
    instead of 192.168.1.100.

    A ipconfig /all shows that my akbnet computer's ip address
    changed from 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.103.

    However if I go to http://192.168.1.100:8080 or
    http://192.168.1.100/webmail on MyGateway computer
    the ISPconfig logon or the mail logon comes up OK.

    What do I need to do so that my
    akbnet.albertbrinson.com/webmail or akbnet.albertbrinson.com:8080 comes online?

    How do I know that 192.168.1.100 is my static IP?

    You must configure your router to forward the ports 80 and 8080 to the IP 192.168.1.100.

    You can see it in /etc/network/interfaces. If it says static, it's a static IP, if it says DHCP, it's not static.

    After reconfiguring ny home network in Windows Xp
    on both my Gateway computer and my dual boot Windows/Ubuntu computer;
    the Ip address for the Gateway computer ( Computer Name is MyGateway)is 192.168.1.101
    the ip address for the Windows/Ubuntu computer (Computer name is akbnet) is 192.168.1.100
    The FQDN is akbnet.albertbrinson.com (I think ;-0). albertbrinson.com is a regestered domain.

    The DHCP Range set in my Linksys Router starts at 192.168.1.105
    as per your advice that my server ip address be not included in the DHCP range.

    Using my Gateway computer with IE or foxfire I Have both Ispconfig and squirrelmail
    come up online OK when using 192.168.1.100:8080 or 192.168.1.100/webmail.
    But I still can not get either program to come online when using
    http://akbnet.albertbrinson.com:8080
    or
    http://akbnet.albertbrinson.com/webmail

    I do have port 80, 81 and 8080 forwarded to 192.168.1.100


    I do not know what else to do!




    /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

    This is driving me NUTS!
    I rebooted my akbnet computer into Windows and on my Gateway computer
    checked to see if MyGateway and akbnet were still networked together. MyGateway said I had no accesss to akbnet. So
    in Widows on my akbnet computer I checked to see if it recognized the MyGateway computer. IT DID!
    Back to the MyGateway computer and now it recognized my akbnet computer.
    I brought up my Linksys router and went to DHCP. It now says that the IP of my akbnet computer is 192.168.1.105.
    Which happens to be the starting range I set up.

    I went to http://192.168.1.100 on MyGateway and as expected "Not Found", previously(Last post) it responded "IT WORKS"

    Back to the akbnet computer running windows.
    I click "My Computer"-properties-Change Name-More and
    typed in ns.192.168.1.100 for the IP address. clicked Ok and rebooted into Ubuntu.

    Back to MyGateway-- entered http://192.168.1.100/webmail and http://192.168.100:8080 and they both worked OK, even though my Router has 192.168.1.105 assigned as the ip address of akbnet!

    Is this setup acceptable????

    My http://akbnet.albertbrinson.com:8080 0r /webmail still does not work!!

    I have gone to many, many other Ubuntu forums and NOBODY has this problem.
    I am not going to give up on this until I get it right.

    What could I be doing wrong?

    To be honest, I'm having difficulties understanding your setup...
