    I am having trouble with my network settings.

    I insalled perfect isp setup for debina sarge and I can use ispconfig etc but I cannot connect to my server from outside the network. I have my servers internal ip listed as the default server on my speedtouch 530.

    When I type in my domain name I come to a password page for my modem. I am unsure as to the reason.

    output from /etc/network/interfaces

    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static

    My modems ip is

    Doesnt seem to matter what I put in the broadcast or network settings but I am sure this is where I am going wrong.

    Please help I have spent almost 2 weeks installing and configuring the perfect setup and I have this last issue before I am finished and I can start setting up webpages.

    Thanks for you help in advance.
