We have a small network, with a fixed external ip address e.g. xxx.xxx.xxx.1
(RED interface) We have a smoothwall firewall as our gateway with an
internal address of 192.168.1.1 .
On the smoothwall, I have set the port access to allow xxx.xxx.xxx.1 (red
interface) on port 80, and added port forwarding from port 80 on our
xxx.xxx.xxx.1 (red interface) interface to an internal webserver e.g.
192.168.1.xx port 80.
Now if I connect to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.1 from outside our network I get our
WWW server, which is correct, however if I try to connect to
http://xxx.xxx.xxx.1 from inside our network I get nothing. How do I go
about fixing this???
I know we should have a DMZ and will do soon, but I just to allow this setup
for one particular ip address at the moment.
