I think the subject gives a good first impression of what I'd like to achieve.
Anyway i'll give a little more context.
I'm running a Windows Home Server in my LAN and I would like to use it's functionalities (especially the streaming) features from "anywhere" using the same URL.
My router is a Linksys WRT160Nv3 running on the DD-WRT v24-sp2 firmware.
I've already setup the necessary port forwardings, as most of the WHS sites run on ports 80 (http) and/or 443 (https) and my isp is blocking all ports < 1024 (I know it suck, but nothing to do about)
Anyway, outside my network (friends home, work, ...) I can access my home server browsing to http://xxx.homeserver.com:10080
or https://xxx.homeserver.com:10443What I want is that this (external) DNS also works when i'm inside my network (so when I'm at home).
Is this possible?
I want this because on the home page of the WHS web interface, I have some links (for example to sabnzb, or the webpage of my raid controller, etc etc, but they all point to http://xxx.homeserver.com
These url's (with the external dns) are not working when i'm inside my lan.
I'm not an export but i'm quite sure it's a DNS issue.
Some more info:
When i do an nslookup xxx.homeserver.com I see the (external) static IP that has been assigned to my router.
When I do a ping to xxx.homeserver.com I also get a reply from the (external) static ip that has been assigned to my router.
Need more info? do ask!!
Thanks in advance!
