Author Topic: Routing error when accessing webserver from within the WLAN  (Read 2346 times)

Hello,
I recently purchased a DIR-615 router, H/W ver. D3. I have a webserver set up on my LAN with port forwarding from WAN to the server on my LAN. However, when I try to access the webserver via the domain i have (www.paybackbaby.com) from within my WLAN, I experience some problems. It seems I do get contact to the server, but then nothing more happens. It's like all packages thereafter are dropped or something.
I have no problems accessing the server from outside my network, so it seems something goes terribly wrong when I want to access my WAN-ip from my LAN. SSH to the server seems to also be a problem when using the domain name from within my LAN.
What could I have done wrong?

Thanks guys!

After reading that this is a matter of poor firmware coding, I took matters into my own hand and installed DD-WRT on my router. Even though there's no official support for the DIR-615 D3, it seems to run flawlessly here. I used this image: ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/06-03-10-r14537/dlink-dir615d/dlink-dir615d-factory-webflash.bin

Best of all - it solved my problem completely!

Awesome! Open-Source strikes again.
BTW, will be upgrading to DD-WRT soon myself.
