Is there any way to get around router loopback on a SOHO router?
It is always getting in my way and causing me trouble and I hate it.
Here is one of many, many, many examples....
Install a Security Camera DVR on location. Customer has an iPhone. All applications on the market require you to map each camera to a web address (it could be local or remote), port number and camera number. So you have to map *******.no-ip:****.*** for each camera + the local address, port number, camera number for the customer and explain that they have to use two separate sets whether they are on site or remote. But with a 64 camera system, with 10 devices, this is very arduous. And this is just for cameras. I run into the same problem for RDP and many other situations where it is not possible or practical to modify the hosts/dns file on every device. Is there any way to allow WAN access for within the LAN with routers that are in the $50-$150 price range?
