URL's show router admin page from inside internal network
Things are working geat. Nice job. I'm still learning, tho.
I cannot figure this one out.
Belkin Pre-n Wireless router
(wireless not good, I know, but it's just a test server)
(router supports loopback)
1 - PC w/Windows Vista (ip = 192.***.*.25)
2 - PC's w/ Windows XP (dynamic internal ip's)
1 - Linux w/ Ispconfig - FedoraCore4 Perfect Setup (ip = 192.***.*.26)
I can see my websites, login to ispconfig, admin the server, etc., from outside my network. However, from the Vista PC, inside my internal network, the url's show my router's admin page.
I cannot bypass the router since it is in another part of the house.
I work in Dreamweaver and Photoshop on the PC, so i would like to check my work without having to go to the Linux box to see it.
I know I have seen this problem discussed before, but a search of the forums came up empty.
Thanks in advance for any help.
if your on windows desktop pcs
and type in "" notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts ""
and put in there
the lan IP of the host PC and the domain name
and do the same for the other domains you got
if firefox or IE is open close them and than try your URL site again
see if thats helps
< if you on linux than just use your fav text editor and edit the /etc/hosts
file and do the same for winodws
IP <tab> domain URL
On the linux server w/ispconfig I edited the /etc/hosts file to include:
I tried to do the same on my Vista PC, but got an access denied message when I tried to save it. I will try my best to disable Vista's security on this file if that is the answer. But I'm new to that operating system as well.
Any other places to look?
OK, Got the host file on the client pc edited but still the same issue. Any other ideas?
Just found this in an article:
"Belkin routers have a WAN loopback. That means if you are hosting a web page internally (using virtual servers) you won't be able to see it....unless you put a PC on the WAN side - kind of a pain in the butt."
Does this mean I'm out of luck? Is there another way to see the site? Maybe a url like http://**.***.**.**/domain.com or something?
if you try to look at ur WAN IP
you will get your router
its just the default thing
to the key part of the qus there
try and do what i said before
set the IP / DNS name to site
in your windows hosts file
and it would work fine
i done that with all of my sites before i had my firewall linux box working .....
But, as I said I got the file edited (after wrestling with Windoze's security). Doesn't seem to help.
Maybe there's some sort of DNS cache on your Windows system. Have you tried to reboot the Windows system to clear the cache?
I cleared all cache and, thanks to the weather here in Texas lately, all the machines including the router have been rebooted several times.
Also, I finally got around to installing Firefox on the Vista system. First website I tried to go to was my own. Same issue.
I'll go back and check the host file on the Linux server but I think it's a router issue. Maybe it doesn't support loopback.
Once again, thanks for all the help.
