Well i'm gonna make this thread a little bigger than usual.. gotta explain everything before so you guys can understand my problem..
How's your server setup?
The server is running behind NAT inside a network, this nat is actually the pfsense firewall.. This server is running on windows.. i'm using a centOS 5.6 vps to run virtualmin and the network interface is bridged.. so it's the same network as server..
I done all the config necessary to run the system.. forwarded a couple of ports in the firewall, here they are:
TCP: 20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,995,3306,8080,10000,465 UPD: 53
and the range from 5000-5100 for passive FTPD..
Those are ONLY for that virtualmin server, i'm using a couple more ports in the windows server but has nothing to do with virtualmin.. ports such as 3389 for RDP etc..
I only have ONE ip adress, static of course.
Now.. i got the DNS server to work, but it seams that only one of my domains are actually working (and no it's not the server hostname), i CAN send and receive emails trough that domain.. i sent a couple to my hotmail account.. replied and it works just fine.. i CAN access that virtual server folder through ftp without any issues.. if i try to browse with the IP adress i get a Index of/ empty page.. if i try to browse the domain it's the same empty page even though i actually have a website inside public_html it just looks like there's nothing in it..
I saw recently a tutorial in youtube.. indian guy crazy accent.. haha.. i done just as he did.. but the default virtualmin page never showed up here..
Now you get the picture..
Things that you don't have to tell me:
I know a lot about nat.. i know the problem.. but all i need is to forward the ports and not using a firewall and nat is not an option for me.. so please don't tell me not to use nat.. instead if there's any port missing there.. i'll forward it..
I use that server for a lot of stuff.. and i'm just testing for now.. once it's finished i'll setup a dedicaded server just for hosting purposes..
I'm not going to host a single website.. more likely 2000 instead.. so i expect in the future to buy the pro version of virtualmin.. just need to get everything working properly.. oh and something you might be thinking.. about the DNS server i plan to use separete servers and networks to host those DNS servers.. if there's a nice guide for that i'd like to see it.. but i don't know if i can do that.. i never done this stuff before.. i used cpanel and always as a client not the hoster..
Now.. i need to think about that email server too.. how secured it is.. the dns server i think i could use another server (that one could be a regular vps with 2 ip adresses or 2 dedicated servers with distinct networks and locations for redundancy.. as i said i could use some help here..
It's hard for someone like me to get everything working.. there's not much people to help out there and all i've done so far i did by myself.. looking for tutorials and all that stuff..
I was looking for a free alternative to cpanel, for 2 reasons.. it's too expensive and it doesn't support NAT, oh and one more reason.. i don't like being monopolized by a company so i don't plan to use cpanel anymore.. and as i said before as soon as i can see that virtualmin is what i need.. i'm gonna look forward to the pro version when i start to host a lot of domains.. for now let's just keep it as free as possible..
Thank you in advance and hope i can get this stuff to work :/
