I am testing an SQL server on my LAN and the response is very quick. I have problems, though, when testing outside of work over the internet (eg. at Starbucks). There are problems that I only see when there are propagation delays.
How can I stay at work and access my local server after first looping through the internet? If I use the external I.P. address, the router just short circuits to the local machine.
I want the propagation delay. Is there some standard external proxy server I can use to do loopback? I'm wasting too much time driving to Starbucks!
