I'm setting a few sites up and many email accounts for a new company so I wanted to save some money as I already have a server running Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have a static IP of 22.214.171.124 and the server's IP is configured as 192.168.1.63. The server is at a business address and is using business broadband. Upon asking 123-reg.co.uk to add an A record for my FQA they have informed me I should not be using 192.168.1.63 under IPv4 settings manually and I should be using the actual static IP of 126.96.36.199.
When I try to add 188.8.131.52 under IPv4 it loses connectivity and under the machine's IP of 192.168.1.63 I am seeing the DNS server is running OK.
Is what the rep at 123-reg told me incorrect?
