    I currently have IPSconfig installed and working but have some questions as to if I have things set up in the best way.

    I have cable internet access to my home with 5 useable ips.

    The cable internet access comes into a cable modem/router (i have no access to this router it is the cable companies). The router has 5 ethernet ports on it. I have one cable going from the modem/router to my Linksy box and then I have my internal home network (192.x.x.x) work just fine.

    The ISPConfig server is actually on a Microsoft Virtual server with two nics. THe ISPConfig/CentOS server is assigned a nic that is plugged directly into the Cable modem to get one of the 5 usable ips. My question is do i need some sort of additional Firewall or is the firewall that ISPConfig has sufficient?

    Additional Questions
    --On step two of CentOS 4.6 Server Setup: LAMP, Email, DNS, FTP, ISPConfig (a.k.a. The Perfect Server) if my current set up is correct i am assuming i need to apply my external IP vs. the way it is documented in the set up.

    (# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost server1)

    --On Step ten of CentOS 4.6 Server Setup: LAMP, Email, DNS, FTP, ISPConfig (a.k.a. The Perfect Server) i was unsure what to put on the follow postconfig step. Based on my question above... i didn't know what to put.

    postconf -e 'mynetworks ='

    --One last one.. If i have ISPConfig installed and working properly. Is there any issues with following the set up for DKIM With dkim-milter to implement Postfix DKIM?

    I think that is all for now.

    I want to give kudos to all that contributed on the how to's this is a great forum to teach folks...

    Normally the ISPConfig firewall is sufficient.

    You can use the public or private IP address in this case (where your server is in a LAN).

    This is correct. It means that only localhost can send without authentication. All other hosts must authenticate.

    Haven't tried DKIM yet, but I *think* it should be no problem.
