not sure if this is the right place but what the heck


hey

just wondering if anyone can have a look at this problem i'm having. i have attached the basic layout of my home network. when i go to collect my mail at home i have to put in a private ip yet when i'm on the road i have to put in my public ip. surely there is a way that i can just collect my mail by using th public ip, but i just can't seem to figure it out. any help much appreciated

Trev

can't seem to add the attachment

ok mail server
private ip 192.168.1.9
router/firewall 213.105.x.x

the public ip address 213.105.x.x is mapped to the mail server using sua/nat

Well some operating systems allow you to add an alternate IP configuration like XP.

Right click on the network connnection and click properties. Select TCP/IP and click properties and click Alternate Configuration and add you external IP info manually. The primary will still be used for your home private network.

Ok how about putting the mail server name and then adding an entry pointing to the external ip address in the lmhosts file?

Dynamic dns should take care of it, however since he did not get back to us I am not sure.

What did not work with it? Did you get an error or did it still resolve to the internal address?
