WAN NAT/Gaming rules are not followed when accessing them from internal LAN
I have an NVG599 setup with NAT/Gaming (port forwarding) rules. The rules properly route when routing traffic from WAN, but if the traffic comes from the LAN the route is not completed. It's like the modem doesn't understand how to complete the route for internal Lan traffic requesting to be routed back into the internal Lan using the port forward rules. 3rd party firewalls/routers don't seem to have this limitation, the routes will complte regardless if the traffic is coming from wan or lan. Currently I have disabled packet filters, and all "Firewall Advanced" security rules.. Still cant get the internal traffic to route properly using the wan address. Any Ideas? This creates a problem when an applcation on a mobile device (cell phone/tablet/laptop) needs to communicate with the server regardless of the device being on the the same internal Wifi network the server is using, or if the Mobile Device is using some other data connection (Cell Phone data / or the users home wifi network)..
NVG599 wan address is 22.214.171.124
Server lan address is 192.168.1.26
NVG 599 NAT/Gaming rule set to forward port 5000 to 192.168.1.26
when not conected to the LAN network, I can access the server by using 126.96.36.199:5000
Does Not Work:
when connected to the Lan network, I can not access the server by using 99:26.1.19:5000
