If your setup is anything like mine (and probably most routers), you can
not connect from the inside to your outside addresses and be NAT'ed back
into your network.

You need different IP address lookups from inside your network for the
name you are using (which is probably resolving to your outside address).

I use entries in my hosts file (on Solaris) for this purpose as I don't
run my own DNS server at home.
