Strange IP problem - Please Help

shahidaltaf32
I am having a strage problem. I have setup a windows 2003 server within my network and have aquired a static IP from my service provider.

All services seem to run fine and can be accessed from the web (I am sure i have configured the router correctly). I can access all websites on the server and can access the remote server/pop mail boxes.

the problem that i face is when i try to access the resources from within the network either through public Ip or domain name, the request always ends up with timout error.

on the other hand, if i try to access the resources with the private ip from within the network, it runs fine.

I first thought this to be a DNS cache problem, but i can ping the ip, run nslookup and tracerout. this obviusly means that there is no dns issue.

Could someone let me know what might be the problem and how can i fix this.

Your replies are very much appreciated.
