    I'd like to make it possible so an internal user can ping
    an external IP and have it respond with the internal IP.

    Here's a little more detail. I have an internal webserver
    with two nics. An external nic with an ext IP. This
    works for outside users. An internal nic with internal
    IP. This is for internal users. Is it possible to setup a
    redirector for my inside users so that if they enter the
    ext IP they automatically get sent to the internal IP?

    Please and thanks.

    Just change your local DNS server so that the name resolves to the local
    IP. Or use or whatever .

  3. If you want an external user from the internet to get to your webserver
    which happens to be on a differnt machine within your private network,...yes
    it can be done. It is called Static NAT (aka Reverse NAT, Publishing,
    Server Proxying,...take your pick). The device that is acting as your NAT
    device must perform this. Only the Vendor it came from can instruct you on
    how to do that.
