Problem browsing using D-Link DI-624

I just installed a DI-624 between two of my networks. On the WAN side of the router I have a server named VESTSERV with an ip of

On the LAN side I connect wireless and VESTSERV is entered in the local hosts-file.

From the command prompt on the client I can ping VESTSERV and get reply from the correct ip, but in the browser I can only see the shares if I connect with the ip-adress.
If I try to browse VESTSERV I get a network unavailable error message.

If I remove the DI-624 and use the old router there is no problem whatsoever.
Connecting the client to the WAN side of the router also removed the problem, so it seems to me that the DI-624 is blocking the traffic.

Any suggestions on how to get around this problem?
