Problem with DDNS

Post by F®EuD|nO » Sat Dec 18, 2004 5:01 pm

I've configured DDNS with dyndns and forwarding, in order to create a web server. When I try to access from an external network (I asked a friend of mine) it's ok and the router sends the visitor to my server (, instaed when I try to access from my LAN I''m redirected to main IP ( Is it possible to solve this problem ? I need to update my web site and I can't configure any script beacause if I use a URL I have problems from inside and if I use the IP I have probems from outside ! Thanx :D

Add an entry to your LMHOSTS file on your machine (and the server if necessary)

Look in

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc for the file.

Add an entry like :

<local ip address> <your ddns name> #PRE

Make sure it's saved as LMHOSTS (no file extension).

Then open a command prompt and run

'nbtstat -r'

should do the job.
