[Resolved}Routing Question?



  • Let me start off by saying that I run pfSense at home but I am not a network guy by trade.  I am having an annoying issue that I cannot figure out how to fix.

    Background:  I have a server at home running Owncloud.  I can connect to it successfully at home by using the internal IP (i.e. 192.168.1.xyz).  If I am external I can access it successfully at my WAN IP (172.248.x.x) or by my domain name (ex bodam.com (not really this one)).

    The problem I have is that my internal systems cannot connect to it using the external info when connected internally.  So, my laptop, or droid phone, for example, connect just fine to bodam.com when at Starbucks, the local library, etc. but at home only the internal IP works (192.168.1.xyz).  This makes it hard to set up the owncloud client so that it works at home and not-at-home.  I think it is simply a matter of forcing the request out of my network and back in via the WAN interface.  I just have no idea how to fix it.

    Thanks for your help in advance

  • Add a dns override  to return the local ip when on your internal lan So Bodam.Com would resolve to 192.168.X. X

    That's what I did.  This was one of those instances where it occurred to me 10 minutes after posting this.
