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 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
