Sorry for all the questions lol...
OK so I host a site on an Ubuntu Server 11.10 PC with EHCP.
I use DynDNS because I have lousy DSL with dynamic IP addresses...
Anyway, that means I have to access my EHCP control panel (if I'm home) with http://10.0.1.48/ehcp/ instead of http://shovenose.dyndns.org/ehcp/
because for some reason if I use the dyndns address from within my LAN it times out (even though it works perfectly from anywhere else in the world)...
BUT that means I can't access my forum! I created a new user on my EHCP server, added the domain shovenose.dyndns.org to the server, so it works bautifully from everywhere else, except I have to use a proxy (like ProxFree.com or something) to go on my forum... very annoying!
How do I access it? like http://10.0.1.48/something/something/something

use hosts file technique, you
use hosts file technique, you may find some info about this, on ehcp.net and web.
put your local ip into your hosts file, with your domainname, like:
this way, you will be able to access your domain through your local ip.
hosts file is at /etc/hosts in linux,
....\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in windows
