    Stop connecting to modem administrative page when viewing website host

    I run my own web server from home and host a couple of websites. When I goto these websites, for example - from inside my own network, I am connected to my modems administrative login page, when I want to be able to see my own websites. Is there a way to stop this?

    This may depend on the design of the modem/router. If you access the public
    IP address from inside the LAN, some will forward you to the internal server,
    just as if you were accessing it from out on the net, but this behavior is not
    guaranteed. As long as people outside your network can reach the server,
    that's as much as you can hope for.

    What sort of router and firmware? dd-wrt has a "loopback" setting that has to be enabled to get to the WAN address from inside, but it's enabled by default, I think. There's probably a similar setting on many proprietary firmwares.
