NAT reflection from host with forwarded port

  • external IP =
    internal IP =

    I have NAT reflection enabled and port 1999 forwarded from PFSense router to internal IP

    this works fine for a secondary host on the LAN, from host I can

    telnet 1999

    and it connects

    but this does not work from the host at internal IP, from host  I can not telnet successfully to port 1999

    Is there anyway to make this work?

  • weird…

    it just started working.  I turned on NAT reflection but initially (as I described) it did not work from the host machine that the port was getting redirected to.  now it does.
