I've got a web server running on port 8080 internally, which I can access from outside the LAN but internally it doesn't work using the public IP/domain name, which is a hassle.  Is there a way to configure the Innbox V50-U router to make this work?

I'll take a look when is get to work but as an alternative if there aren't too many work stations you could use the hosts file

I forget what this function is called - NAT loopback i think.
if there is an option to enable NAT loopback then that will be the one.

Just see if you can modify DNS per domain. If it uses DNSmasq then it can do this.

You just simply say '' resolves to for instance. So everyone can just type the site like normal but it points them directly to the web server.
