I have a 2811 IOS router (12.4) with a DSL interface.
I am using Static NAT for my web server & Dynamic NAT for my LAN users.
I can access the web server internally, but cant access it using its external IP address.
I have been struggling with this for over a year now, and on my Linksys router, I see that there is a nice feature to turn this on / off.
From my lan, if I traceroute to the webserver external IP address, I dont even get to the router. Instead I get a reply immediately.
For example, my WebServer IP address is 19x.1.1.115 and my IP range is 19x.1.113-127
When I traceroute from a PC on the LAN to 19x.1.1.115, I get a response immediately.
On the other hand, if I traceroute to 19x.1.1.117 (non-existant host), the route goes via the Router and then out to the Internet.
I am sure its the static NAT / dynamic NAT combination that is messing it up, but even with route maps applied, I still cant seem to figure out how to get this fixed.
Any ideas on how I can enable this feature on the IOS router ??
