    We have setup the debian linux Sarge webserver and is working :)
    We have installed ISPConfig and is working :)
    We have added on UebiMiau Webmail UebiMiau Webmail working also :)
    Have added PHPMyAdmin 2.6.3-pl1 also working :)
    Can some one recommend weather to us Dynamic or Static DNS service?
    Could some one with experience tell me which of these two services would be the better choice Dyndns and Easydns ? Also you should know we have a linksys router that has a section that allows dyndns and tzo service.

    If you don't have a static IP then use a dynamic DNS service. I've never tried Easydns because DynDNS is working for me. :)

    So let me get this straight I just forward my domain to dyndns and activate the routers built in dyndns setting and we don't need a ipudat the router will do the work?:)

    Yes, but you must still forward some ports from your router to your Linux system (e.g. port 80 for http, 25 for SMTP, 110 for POP3, 21 for FTP, 22 for SSH, ...).

    Thank you for your response....We are now set up w/ dyndns.....what I would like to know is where do we put the website information.....if my thinking is correct, it goes into the management area on ispconfig panel....please advise....also, is there a list somewhere of which ports will need to be enabled thru our router?

    I have ddclient working with zonedit on 10 domains perfectly. If you need assistance with that, let me know.

    DDClient: http://ddclient.sourceforge.net
    ZoneEdit: http://www.zoneedit.com

    Common Open Ports taken from ctroyp's post but edited ;)
        Port 21 (tcp) is open (ftp)!
        Port 22 (tcp) is open (ssh)! <-- Caution!
        Port 25 (tcp) is open (smtp)!
        Port 80 (tcp) is open (http)!
        Port 81 (tcp) is open (ISPConfig)!
        Port 110 (tcp) is open (pop3)!
        Port 443 (tcp) is open (https)!

    You mean where you can create and edit web sites in ISPConfig? It's under ISP Manager, not Management. Please have a look at the manuals.
