    I have just install the

    The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Apache2, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

    everything work perfect
    I have only one small problem. When I what to see a webpage inside my network my fuc..... router an Cisco RV220W route the me to it's management page.

    If I go to another internet connection the page works fine it is only when I'm inside the same network.
    What is the easy way to see the pages local.

    Kind Regards

    DNS Server

    whats your dns configuracion on the client computer?
    Why not set the DNS server on the ubuntu box create the zones there for your internal network and then put your client computers to use your Ubuntu server as your dns server that way you can bypass any dns query and do it locally.

    If that wont work for you I will be online with skype ed.quevedo if you need further assistance.
    Always glad to help here where myself have found lots of help.
    DUHHH .. did not read until now you already installed BIND .. you have the dns server there ..
    Best of the tutorials are falkos tuts.
    So now just create the zones.

    Make sure that the DNS records point to your router's public IP and that your router is configured to forward all needed ports (e.g. 80 for http) to your server.

    If that doesn't work, chances are that either your ISP is blocking port 80 or that your router doesn't support loopbacks.

    Hallo Falko

    I think you have misunderstod me.
    You can see websites. DNS records are setup up for the ip-adress every thing is forwarded and so.

    But if you hare inside the local-network. Then the router overrules and forward it to the cisco management adress.

    Hi Trinitron

    Normally it depends on your Bind (DNS server) config.
    Default config for CentOS is inside /var/named/chroot ..
    I will have a look at the Ubuntu but my guess is that it is the same.

    Make sure that in /etc/hosts, the hostname of the server has been pointed to the IP address of the server. It should look like below:

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost mail
    ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

    Create a file /var/named/chroot/var/named/ with the following configuration:

    ; Addresses and other host information.
    @ IN SOA (
    2011030801 ; Serial
    43200 ; Refresh
    3600 ; Retry
    3600000 ; Expire
    2592000 ) ; Minimum

    ; Define the nameservers and the mail servers

    IN NS
    IN A
    IN MX 10

    mail IN A
    ns IN A

    Edit the /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf file to match the

    options {
    directory "/var/named";
    dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    forwarders {; };
    include "/etc/rndc.key";
    // We are the master server for

    zone "" {
    type master;
    file "";

    Start named on the server

    /etc/init.d/named start

    If you need further help skype me.
