Access external Public IP from inside ?

Mon Jun 08, 2009 3:59 pm

Hi Folks,

I was wondering what the best way is to configure the RouterOS if I want to run a GameServer at Home b.e. UT3.
When I connect to the Server Browser, this one provides me the external Public IP of my connection.
If I want to connect the to my server - Bang. No connection anymore to my server anymore.

Any hint on how I could make it work ?
Thx

that was not the question - as this - I already did... The Problem here is rather that "me" - I already sit behind the firewall inside the LAN.
The Game-Server is inside the LAN too, however the Server-Browser (UT3 - outside on the Internet) provides my client (WorkStation) the Public IP-Address.

When my Client tries to go for the Public IP-Address it will automatically select the RB493AH as next hop to be routed to it's destination. However the IP is the RB493AH itself.
And this one does not NAT me to the real Game Server inside the LAN.

So - what am I missing here ?

WorkStation ------- (RFC1819 IP) RB493AH (Pub-IP) ------------------ Server Browser
Game Server -----/
