Accessing a dynamic DNS host from the same LAN as host

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 75.75.75.75 & 75.75.75.76
DHCP is turned off on my TrendNet router.

I can ping the dynamic host OK from the LAN.  

Any suggestions?

internally you would use the internal machine name i.e.
\\computername\index.html
or http:\\fixedipaddress\

Yes I know.   I was able to use the external host name at one point.

Some ISP/routers won't allow this...
Check with your ISP if this is doable.
Otherwise, there may be some solution, like conditional name resolution.

I just added a new zone in the DNS for my no-ip.info domain, then added an A host in the zone including the fixed IP address of the camera.   Problem solved.
