Public IP not accessible from internal addresses.

Hey All;  When setting up GP and other external interfaces for access I found that any NAT inbound is not accessible when in the local network as well, only from outside. 

Can anyone explain if there is a NAT or GP gateway setting that will take internal users to the outside IP without failing.  It is much easier to test setting up the firewalls when this is permitted.

You need to set up a u-turn NAT policy:

Yes, sorry, if using a PBF rule as well for redundancy.

Negate the external network you are trying to reach with your U-turn NAT from the PBF policy.
