Static NAT Issue
Posted on 2009-12-31
I've created a static NAT on our Sonicwall NSA 3500 to allow some basic services such as HTTP, FTP from a Public IP to a private IP on our LAN. Everything works fine from the outside, however I'm a little confused as to what I need to do inside for my hosts on my local subnet to be able to access this server, its DNS name resolves to its public IP and I'm getting a connection refused.
I know I could run a local DNS and have it resolve to its private address or edit the hosts.config and manually add a static route on each host, but I wanted to try to avoid either of these if possible.
many thanks in advance
