I have an internal web server that has an external IP address assigned via a Cisco Router with a ip nat command:
ip nat inside source static tcp 10.1.1.10 443 [External IP] 443 extendable

connections from the outside is perfect and running - but internal clients can't connect via the external IP
we get a "refused to connect" message

the goal is to have internal clients access the server from the external IP

any help is appreciated, thank you

The solution worked. Would prefer internal DNS and keep the load off of the router but under the circumstances this solution provided the end user with their desired results.
