    I'm behind a nat, I have a local Lan IP on the server and a public static IP address on the Internet router/fw. The server will be also the primary name server.
    What should be the IP address in management-server-settings- IP address ?

    any specific reasons for trying to set up a primary nameserver on a box with no public IP adress ?

    that is not really a good idea usually

    Well, the Firewall gets the public IP and then port forward all the IP packets to the server behind the FW. Like this:

    Internet------FW with public IP-------Server with LAN IP

    this way I can have a server for web and another server for mail for example, I just have to forward the right IP ports to the right server.

    You must always use IP addresses that you see in the output of
    , so in your case that would be a private IP address.

    Ok, but if I use the private IP address, ISPConfig will use it to configure the DNS named files, instead of the static public IP address, is this correct?
    The internet domains are registed using the static public IP address.
    This is my doubt.

    You can modify all the DNS records using ISPConfig's DNS Manager.
