ok. this has been driving me nuts. i got smoothwall 2.0 voyager all
up and happy, in fact, i'm posting from behind it right now. it's a
GREEN + RED setup.
anyways, i've got a webserver behind it and i have the firewall port
forwarding to the server. i know all the risks of having a server open
to the world without a DMZ and blah blah, but hopefully this setup
won't be around for long. i've been trying to test port fwd'ing from
inside the GREEN, and I can't hit the server. I've been ripping my
hair out trying to figure it out, because my friends can hit it, it's
just me that can't. then i found this:
and it says "You can not test any portforwarding from within your
and I ask "why?"
My users need to have access to that webserver, and it would kind of
be a PITA to try and get them to use the internal IP instead of the
qualified domain name. i guess i could go throw an entry in their
hosts file, but i'd rather it just work the way i want it to and route
anyone know of a way to do this?

he wants and he's cranky.
