Hi all

I really hope someone can help!

I have my own SSL certified website setup to host my profile manager - this was created as a new A record through my provider.

I also have OS X Server 5.0 installed on my MacBook Pro, the host name is and the status states "Reachable at, no services available", the public host name is displaying correctly and the external IP shows correctly.

Profile manager correctly states that it is available at

I believe the issue is with the DNS settings, it states "Set your DNS settings to to use this server", as far as I know this IP address should be the external IP not the local IP.

What steps do I need to take to ensure the External IP is shown on the DNS page?

Thanks in advance!
