Response to: Cannot access website from local network but can from internet

I have a similar problem. From another computer on my LAN, I can access the web server. But oddly enough, when I type in it's private IP, 127.0.0.1 or localhost.. it does not work. It's exasperating.


It works without the router.......... maybe I'll smash it to bits.

    I have the exact same problem since I set up host name headers on my IIS server.

    Has anyone found out what the issue is? I have Linsys router. It definitly has something to do with the Host Name Headers because prior to using them I could access the web site from inside my network.

      You need to disable the NAT redirect filter.

      Filter Internet NAT Redirection should be disabled. on your router... This filters local PC from trying to connecto to other localPC from and external IPAddress.
