Sorry I´m sure this has been covered many times. But then I´m still driven to ask.
I believe that I´m fighting this problem.
16.3. Why isn't it possible to access NATed
services by the public IP address from
Problem. It is not possible to access NATed services using the public (WAN) IP
address from within LAN
I have Cisco 1700 router with a subnet of public addresses. I want to put
monowall behind the Cisco router with My LAN behind monowall. On My LAN
I have a number of servers (e.g. web, ftp, email) all with wan on a subnet that the
monowall WAN is setting on. Then the monowall box is NATing those addresses
to My LAN.
Internet ------Cisco 1700 ----- monowall ---- My main LAN---- webserver etc.
With this setup if I ping My URL www.mywebserver.com from My LAN side
computer, I get returned the ipaddress that the Cisco router is NATing to, not the
My internal LAN ipaddress.
So is this correct. This is what this FAQ is tring to tell me, and I need to setup
My LAN side DNS server to resolve things like www.mywebserver.com or use the
other answers of 16.3
The reason for doing this is I want to stop using the Cisco router as a firewall.
