Redirect to internal address
I'm running an email server in my house, behind my PFSense router. I have port forwarding setup and all is good from outside. Also, when I'm home, I can connect internally to the 192.168.x.x address; that works great.
What I'd really like to do is connect to the server both home and away without reconfiguring the server address in my email client. Right now, I have two mail servers configured - one to my external address and one to my internal address.
thanks for any suggestion.
Enable NAT reflection to use the external address.
Sadly, there is no joy in mudville…
Destination: Single Host: 24.2.x.x (my external address)
Destination Port: 80
Redirect IP: 192.168.x.x (My internal server)
Redirect Port: 80
NAT Reflection: Enabled
Thanks in advance
FIXED: solution posted for anyone else looking to fix this problem.
I had to go into System -> Advanced -> Firewall/NAT and deselect the checkbox called 'Disable NAT reflection'. I believe that is what gderf meant.
