    I'm running Version 1.19 on a Linksys WRT54GL router. I'm running a server on my local network at I set the DMZ to point to my server. When I type into my browser, I get my website. However, when I type my WAN IP into my browser from my server (or any other computer on the local network), it says:

    Unable to connect
    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at XX.XXX.XXX.XXX.

    When I was running standard Linksys firmware with the exact same setup, I was able to type the WAN IP into my browser to access my server. How do I set this up on Tomato? Let me know! Thanks.

    This should be cured by the setting of wan IP local "Nat Loopback" on the Advanced:Firewall tab in the gui. Current Tomato versions default to "Forwarded Only".

    Linksys used to call this function "Filter Internet Redirection" or similar.

    That worked! Thanks a lot!
