This is hopefully an easy/common problem. I have several ports setup to be forwarded to my single server with port 80 being one example. Externally people can hit port 80 and my website fine but internal LAN clients can not connect.
I'm using 192.168.2.0/24 for my LAN network with my server being on .4 and .5-254 being served for clients. Up to this point, I've hard coded my website name in my /etc/hosts file as the 192.168.2.4 address but I can't do that for my newly acquired tablet.
On the router, I've checked the nat tables before and after a telnet test. (iptables -t nat --line-numbers -v -L PREROUTING) and can see packet count increase for traffic destined for port 80 "tcp dpt:www to:192.168.2.4".
I'm running out of ideas as everything I look at seems correct. Any ideas?
