I've googled and searched for a week now trying to find out how I can access my server from the internal network. The server is statically port NATed from my one public IP to an address on VLAN1.
I would like to reach this server using the public IP from VLAN2 (using the domain name (FQDN)). Is there any solution to this? The router I had before starting with Cisco automatically supported this. I've found out that this type of operation is probably called "bi-directional NAT" or "Two-way NAT".
Unfortunately I've been unable to find examples of this for Cisco IOS without using split-DNS. I've got a Cisco 1801-router.
Help would be greatly appreciated! :)
You need to configure a NAT Virtual Interface:
The problem is the packet never leaves the router via the egress interface where the ip nat outside is located so the source is never translated, the destination IP is locally connected.
I haven't tested this but according to the description, it should work. Post back with results.
