routing internal requests to external IP



I have a domain on set to my nvg510's external IP.

I have NAT/gaming port forwarding for port 80 set to my small server computer inside the network.


When I serve my computer by url from my laptop, it works perfect.....if I'm outside the network.

if I'm inside the network the 510 will not loopback the route back into the network.


What do I need to set so I can go to and have it route back into the 510 and over to my server so I can set everything to vice the Internal IP?

I have Uverse with a Pace 5268AC router and I have the same issue.


I can't even route to my public IP from within the LAN.  I have a web server running on my lan and I have configured my router's firewall to forward ports 80 and 443 to the web server. It works fine from outside my home, but if I try to access either my domain name or my public IP from within the LAN, I get "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" in my browser. 


Anyone find a solution for this?

Uverse RGs can not loopback, period. 😉

If you have one of the VPN services, enable it to the closest server. 

All of your requests from your internal LAN to your external IP will work. 

The VPN changes your IP address on the internet to the address of the VPN server.

When the internet request is sent back to you, it is from an external IP.
