    I am using a Rv042 as my firewall/router and behind the router I have a web server on a private IP address. I have mapped the port 80 to my web server private IP address (

    Accessing the web server (www.mysite.com) from outside my network works fine.

    Internal Pc's try to connect to my web server using its public hostname (www.mysite.com) address fail because the firewall blocks it.

    Internal machines can access the web server using the private ip address

    I would like to make a dns mapping so that internal machines when they query www.mysite.com get the answer

    Is this possible? I could not find any place in the Rv042 firmware 1.3.1 to setup dns entries.

    I believe this is an existing issue with this firmware. Can't remember where I read it, but I'm sure I read this before somewhere. Not sure if this is fixed in the beta releases of the firmware for this unit.

    The easiet way would be to edit the HOST file on each PC and add an entry for it :)

    I can confirm that after upgrading to 1.3.6 beta the problem has been resolved.

    I can confirm that it hasn't. I can reach every Internet address I try except the ones hosted on my own domain. When I bypass the RV042, it works fine.

    that is weird. All I can say is it works well in my setup when it wouldnt with earlier versions of the firmware.

    if you like we can compare setup options enabled.
