I've asked this question and even searched around but didn't get a useful answer for me.
Basically what im doing is i have a webserver on internal ip 192.168.0.100 port 80. So if im in the network it would be accessible if i type in 192.168.0.100/myportal/login.php
Ok no prob so far. Now, i would like for internal network users to access it via our public static ip which is 219.92.xx.xxx/myportal/login.php
If im outside of this network, no problem.i can access it. But how do i make it so that if im in the internal network, i can use the public ip?
now it's not practical because i have to use two different address depending on my network situation.
Why i want this? simple. because i want to buy a domain name and use it with my public ip which im hosting my own webserver. so now i cant access using public ip inside, i wont be able to use my domain later assigned to that ip.
for example, i wont be able to access it via www.vportal.com/myportal/login.php if im inside the network. so to conclude, it's not practical am i right? i would need to use internal ip when im inside. only can use domain,when im outside.
Now, im certain there is a way around this but i really hope someone can give me some idea or solution because i am NOT a network person. but i do know all the basics.
FYI, my setup is a simple setup which is modem and router.one server is using wired connection. my router is dlink dir615. now what can i do with what i got now?is it possible?
i've read about nat loopback but i know it's not possible for my situation. i really hope somebody can help and explain to me in layman's way. i really want to learn this.
