But it's not simple is it? Next time VPN into the network. That sidesteps port forwarding.
I'm experiencing a strange issue with *some* devices (windows PCs, android phones) on my network when they try to access servers on the SAME network via a dynamic DNS service (no-ip)
Network is simple: wired and wireless devices connected to a router. Router forwards ports as desired (remote desktop, some web ports.)
ALL PCs and phones can access services if they use the router IP directly (ie: 192.168.1.1)
Some wired and wireless devices (pc, android) cannot access services if they are within the network that has the servers, and try to access via the dynamic DNS name xxxx.no-ip.org
ALL devices can access services using the dynamic DNS name if they are on at external network - eg: another wireless network, mobile broadband, etc...
Given that it is not all devices, not even all wired or wireless devices, and that it works perfectly for all devices from external networks I am at a loss for what the problem could be. Network setup is super simple: just a home router with wired and wireless... Does anyone have any pointers to how I can test things that might help me identify the problem?
