Can't open webpage which url is of same domain as our LAN



  • Greetings.
    Let's suppose our domain is acme.com.
    We have a pfSense 1.2.3 running and set up for that domain, acme.com.
    Now we also have a webpage hosted somewhere on the internet which opens with www.acme.com.
    We can't open such webpage behind pfSense but using a gsm/3g usb pendrive (not behind pfSense) we can easily open the webpage.
    This has something to do either with DNS or maybe with NAT but we're not networking experts.
    Could someone give us a hand, please?
    Thanks in advance :)
    Cheers



  • Hi there,
    I'm posting because with the help of the guys down at #pfsense irc channel, i have fixed the issue.
    Actually the problem was our internal DNS server didn't know where to find www.acme.com.
    So we created a rule pointing www.acme.com to the external web server IP address.
    It started working right away.
    Cheers
