    Has anyone set up a web or e-mail server behind a Tomato ? I may need to soon, and was curious about local "Loop-Back" functionality. I could use a DynDNS account to test, but am hoping someone may already know the answer and could indulge my laziness. Thanks.

    I have a web server running Apache and MySql behind Tomato.
    Never had any problem accessing it from the outside (or the LAN for that matters). I don't know about an email server, but I suspect it shouldn't be a problem eighter.

    I've got an email server working flawlessly as well, just opened port 25 (SMTP) and it was good to go.

    Superb. I'll be serving ports 80, 25 and 110. My concern was about LAN clients being able to find the server when looking for the URL or the pop server by name. In Tomato did you simply forward the ports to the LAN IP of the server ?

    that's exactly what i do when i need to give someone temporary access to a webserver on my network. only for security reasons and for tracking reasons, each person who accesses the server remotely uses a different port. then in Tomato i forward each external port to port 80 on the servers IP.
