Cannot access my own public IP internally

Message 1 of 4
(539 Views)

I built a website locally and set up port forwarding. But when I try to access my own Public IP, it prompts ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT. I contacted my friends, they can access my website through my Public IP, and the speed is very fast. I specifically asked my friends in Canada to try to access my website, they can also visit and had no problem with the connection. But I can only use my local IP to access my own website. Don't know what's going on, hope someone can help!

 

My router info:

Firmware Version:1.3.6.27
Model Name:G3100
Broadband Physical Connection:Ethernet
IPv4 Address is from:WAN DHCP

Port forwarding only works seen from outside my local network?

I tried that, but it didn't work for me. And I didn't have this problem before. This problem occurred after updating from G1100 to G3100 after moving.

#1 There two fixes in there:

 

a) Static DNS entry in the router's UI

 

b) Host file trick

 

#2 If you only tried the Static DNS entry in the router's UI fix, then try the Host file trick.
