Hey everyone

Ok, here is the problem.

I have a CISCO 890 router and I can setup port forwarding and the people from the outside can get to the servers with no issues, but the people inside the network cannot get to the local server using the public IP address.  Now, here is where it gets tricky.

The server in question is an IP camera server, and so its not on the domain nor does it get its DNS from a local DNS server.  Of course, now that I mention all of that, I will have to ask the camera guy if the PC could join the domain and use the local DNS server.  But, if that cannot be done, is there a way to setup NAT loopback (if thats the proper term) on a CISCO 890?

Now, here is the crutch of it all.  Right now they have a RVO42 and it works fine.  They are trying to upgrade their router and the 890 was the one that they picked out.

Thanks for any help!!
