Cannot Reach My local Server with Public IPs on LAN

Tue Dec 10, 2013 4:34 pm

Hi All,

I recently did a port forwarding to my local server.
I can connect to the server using public IPs when am outside the LAN but can't connect to my local server if am within the network while using thesame Public IPs

You need hairpin NAT:

You can also set a static DNS entry in your router.
