Accessing a dynamic DNS host from the same LAN as host
Posted on 2013-01-10
I have a dynamic dns account set up with no-ip.info.
I have the dynamic update client set up on a server.
I have the router configured to allow traffic on a specific port to workstation with a fixed ip address with an ip camera.
I can access the ip camera from outside the LAN just fine using the dynamic host name/port.
The problem is that I can't access the same resource using the same URL from inside the network on the LAN.
I am using Comcast for my ISP,
My router is a TrendNet TEW-731BR
My cable modem is a Motorola SURFboard SB6141
DHCP is managed by my Windows 2003 Server
DNS is set to my Server & Comcast 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52
DHCP is turned off on my TrendNet router.
I can ping the dynamic host OK from the LAN.
