Networking newb here... I seem to be having an odd networking issue.
When I am using a PC/laptop/Smart phone on my local network I am unable to access web pages (or email) on my network server using the FQDN.
Here's the set-up:
- Domain name provider that points to the static IP address e.g. example.com points to 222.111.111.001
- Fixed IP router address: e.g. 222.111.111.001
- dd-wrt router: 192.168.1.1 It has port-forwarding to the Ubuntu server which seems to work as it serves pages, etc to non-local ip addresses. Local machines are issued ip address via DHCP in the 192.168.1.100 to 149 range.
- Ubuntu 10.04 server on 192.168.1.150
- Clients include Linux mint machines, Android phone and get addresses such as 192.168.1.104
If I am on a client on the local network ( 192.168.1.104) and I try to navigate to a webpage on example.com/index.htm then the request times out. The same sort of thing applies to email - If I am connected on the local network (wirelessly) then I cannot access the IMAP and SMTP servers using mail.example.com
The situation is fine if I am using a non-local network (e.g. my Vodafone mobile network). The device will successfully load example.com/index.htm The situation is also ok if I navigate to 192.168.1.150/index.htm
Any thoughts on how to trouble shoot this one? It's obviously a little annoying...
