I'm trying to set up a computer connected via Ethernet cable to my router as a server, accessible from the public Internet.
I've used the TP-Link admin panel to reserve a specific (local) IP address for the server. I'm also using a utility called ddclient to fetch the server's public IP address and update my DNS records.
Here's my issue: When I try to visit my server's public IP address from within my home network, I get this error message in the browser:
Rejected request from RFC1918 IP to public server address
If I try to access the server via the local IP, it works. It's only the public IP that isn't working.
Is there a setting on my router that I need to configure so that I no longer get this "Rejected request" error?
