    I recently installed ISPconfig with the help of the tutos here on howtoforge. For as far as I know it works but I have a few questions:

    The setup is experimental so not open for the outside world (yet).

    I installed debian 4.0 and I named the computer "Xubu-test". My workgroup is still MSHOME (yeah, yeah, has to change :) ) I also have 2 other linux pc's in my network. Butler (fileserver) Media1 (Media pc) Xubu-Test (the ISPConfig..)

    For some reason something goes wrong with (i think) netbios. While installing Ispconfig I entered somewhere. Called the server "server1". I have a domainname, which is forwarded to this server. When I open port 80, this works ok, remote and locally.

    What goes wrong then? well, i can reach all of my computers by entering \\<name> in my browser. (butler, media etc). but NOT \\Xubu-test. And sometimes (to reach the mail) i need to enter https:\\ That does not work. Here an example of a netscan:


    The ipadresses are changed but maybe you can see what i mean. the .201 is the ISPconfig. He should tell me that the hostname is Xubu-Test. Sometimes it says and sometimes

    How can I correct this? The pc is called Xubu-test so I want to reach him that way. How do I remove the

    Simply put: how to set straight its name? Later on he might me serving more than 1 domain.

    Thanks for the help

    Do you use a firewall on the ISPConfig server? If so, open ports 137 - 139.

    /etc/mailname (if exists)
