I have a webserver running on my private PC at home. This PC is running Windows 7.
The PC is connected to a home router via WiFi. That home router is configured with a port-forwarding rule that makes the webserver accessible from the outside.
I can access this server just fine from the outside, so the server and the port-forwarding rule are just fine. I can also access the server from the PC itself (the same PC that is running the server) if I use
127.0.0.1, i.e. don’t go through the router.
However, it does not work fine if I try to access it from the PC itself by using the external IP or a dyndns hostname (so it connects via the router). Sometimes it doesn’t connect at all; sometimes it loads a bit of the webpage but then stalls and never finishes.
I had this problem in two different houses with different routers (but the same PC).
Anything that can be done about this problem?
