Port Forwarding - access from internal network

Have a BT Smart hub 2 and port forwarding works fine on all ports, and accessing the external ip from the internal network also works (NAT loopback) except for on port 80 - where it redirects to the router settings page when accessed from the internal network.

How can this be fixed?

Re: Port Forwarding - access from internal network

It can`t be fixed, as its the expected behaviour on your local network.

If you need to run a webserver, then you can still do that, as incoming traffic on port 80 would not access the home hub settings, so you could still map port 80 to your PC which was running a webserver, you just would not be able to access it via NAT loopback, only be directly addressing the PC.
