I have a server set up that I regularly need to access from outside of my home network. Port forwarding is set up correctly on the router (Motorola NVG510) and it is fully accessible outside of my home network. I use dyndns to keep my IP up-to-date and it is working. However internally (say from my desktop or my laptop connected to my home network) I cannot access it by the full URL (myhost.dyndns.org) and I am forced to use the internal IP. This is inconvenient to have to change every time I need to access the server when going from inside my home to anywhere outside and visa versa. Is there a setting or a way past this so the address will resolve correctly within my own network?

Thanks! I hadn't thought of this. I will try it when I get the chance but your right, this seems like it would be the best choice. I think because the server is already registered in DNS however I should use a CNAME record (pointer) instead, but the idea is the same.
