accessing corresponding public address from within the private network

I have static mappings from my inside private addresses to their corresponding outside public addresses on a PIX 6.1 and am using access-lists to allow http access to certain servers on the inside. I can access the web pages fine from outside the pix but cannot access them from within the private network. Can anyone help me solve this problem.

Thanks

Re: accessing corresponding public address from within the priva

I assume you are referring to the inability of inside hosts to access the servers using their public addresses. You need to create alias statements for this.

If you have a DNS server on outside and web server is inside with client, and client wants to go to web server using dns, then use:

alias (inside) local global

... replaces the DNS query global addr with the local addr for inside hosts only. If the web server is in a dmz, the address sequence is the reverse.

Re: accessing corresponding public address from within the priva

Thanks for the reply. The problem is my DNS server and web server are both on the inside. Is there anything else I can do on the pix to resolve that issue.
