Web server hosting the port 80 redirection cannot access itself
Posted on 2007-12-05
Port 80 on the external address of our Pix 501 (68.179.x.y) is redirected to our internal Web Server at ip address 10.200.6.25. Everyone can access the web site properly, internal as well as external clients. Except from the Web server itself. If I go to address 68.179.x.y in IE from the web server itself, I get Page Cannot be displayed.
Is this a normal Cisco Pix behaviour preventing a redirected host to access itself from the external interface, or is it a misconfiguration on our part ?
