Accessing public web site from inside firewall
Posted on 2007-07-30
We've got a SonicWall firewall and a public web site on a server on the inside of the firewall. When users on our LAN (inside) try to browse to our own public web site, they get the SonicWall administration login page. They can bring up the web site if they point their browser directly at the web server by its internal name, but secure pages and functions don't work correctly. I don't think it's a DNS issue because even if I point the browser at the external IP address, I get the same login page.
I've tried to figure whether I need to enter a rule or static route or something, but no luck. What do I need to do to bring up the public web site from inside?
