Hello, this is probably an easy question but I'm stuck. (all IP address's are fake)
External Block: 126.96.36.199/24
Interal Block: 192.168.10.0/24
I have a server with 192.168.10.50 and everyone in the network, servers and desktops can access this server. On the router I give it a nat translation
ip nat inside source static 192.168.10.50 188.8.131.52 extendable
so the outside world can access it, and they can and all seams to work fine. However, if I am on the private range, I cannot access it using the public IP address. Now, this isn't a major problem, however I cannot solve it so it does expose a lack in my knowledge.
Here some other bits of info that might be useful
ip nat pool ionic-pool 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.255.128 ip nat inside source list 10 pool ionic-pool overload
You are actually not supposed to contact your internal server from your internal network by its public IP address. Watch the sequence of steps that happens:
You send a packet to the public IP of your server, sourced from your own internal network.
By virtue of classic IP routing, this packet's destination is outside your network, so it will be sent out through the NAT box
The NAT box notes that this packet is coming from inside to outside, so it rewrites its source IP address, not its destination, and sends it to internet, instead of rerouting it back to your own network
Note that even if the NAT box actually rerouted the packet back, it would create an unnecessary extra hop for all packets between you and the server because the communication would have to go through the NAT box instead of flowing directly.
Thank you for your reply, I had a feeling this was what the end answer would be. So essentially, everyone internall uses the internal IP (or even a name pointing to that) and everyone externall uses the external (or DNS entry) and internal will never use external. That's good enough for me, just though I was missing something completly

This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
