Accessing a website on the same public ip as the source

L0 Member

* new here so if posted incorrectly. don't kill me *

 

Im trying to access mywebsite.com that is on a local IIS windows server.

 

I can access it from Outside ( via Cell phone ) via a NAT Inbound Policy. 

 

I need to be able to go to mywebsite.com from a computer that is on the same vlan as the webserver. I have not found any documentation on how to setup that kind of nat policy.   Can someone please assist. It would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @onedelve ,

 

All valid questions that @akuzhuppilly  is asking but it sounds like you're trying to set up U-turn NAT (accessing an internal resource when you're resolving the external address).

 

U-turn NAT is explained here:

DotW: U-Turn NAT Issue 

How to Configure U-Turn NAT 

 

Hope this helps,

If it is on the same VLAN, then how the traffic is switched/routed?

Does it go through the FW?

How about the DNS lookup status from the internal network? Are you expecting to get the public IP or the private IP?
