External clients works good - internal (NAT) clients fail #147468

Still playing with the UBB Demo v6.x and have one lat problem... Currently running my own server in house (W2K server, IIS5, Perl, etc) via a hardware router & cable modem. I do not plan on having a hosting provider anytime soon, so if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

Problem: When accessing the UBB forums from an outside (i.e. off our LAN), everything works correctly. When trying to access the UBB forums on our network, it tries to resolve DNS for the site and never returns back (we have a router that is doing our NAT). I tried plugging in the internal IP of the server in IE & am able to pull up the UBB main page, but without icons. Of course, trying to post anything tries to resolve our domain name of which will never return a result (I guess since the domain name is local).

Is there a way to trick the PC's on our LAN (behind the firewall & router) to resolve all the UBB functions internally for us in the house, and still be able to resolve pages externally for outside people?

FYI - the main web site sorks fine by substituting the domain name (in the URL) with the server internal IP. I assumed UBB would follow the same suit.

Are you not able to access it with a browser from the URL?
