Hi everyone, Firstly I would like to thank Falko on his great Perfect server setup SUSU 10.1 server setup tutorial. My problem is quite simple for guys like you, as I'm a complete Linux newbie, I have bitten the bullet and have migrated form Windows (Biggest pile of mess OS ever... Only used it to play Games) I want to host my own site with my own Nameservers (at present only one box with on NIC) my domain was registered with GoDaddy so I have Managed DNS option. My current Nameservers are at Zoneedit, I have installed every thing on SuSe 10.1 ready for ISPConfig install, my box is behind a NAT/Router to a 10MB Cable Modem. Q1: should i connect straight to the modem or stay behind router. Q2: if I saty behind router should i DMZ or IP filter (My IP filtering is limited on my Router [DLink DI-634M]) Q3: what IP no's do i use in the DNS zone files my lan ip or wan ip, and how do i then setup my nameservers eg: ns1.mydom.net, ns2.mydom.net on the same comp (Current hostname server.mydom.net). Q4: when using ISPConfig when setting up the sites and bind them to individual IPs eg 192.168.0.100, 192.168.101, 192.168.0.etc. how do i use my nameservers and will external requests work even when they are binded to internal IPs not external IPs. Q5: and how will other websites eg: www.otherdom.com have a mail server called mail.otherdom.com as my mail server is eg mail.mydom.net. Well at present thats all I need help with but i'm sure i'l be back being a newbie. Many thanks in advance to everyone the linux community rocks unlike the windows community which is like its OS crap.
