cannot connect to local machine using dynamic dns with domain name

I have two PCs, one laptop and an ipad on my network at home using BT Home Hub 6, one of the PCs has been setup to be a DMZ machine running Linux and have configured a domain name using dynamic dns to point to it, it is running a web server,  http://hakimgeorge.dyndns.org, the ports are configures as follows:

I moved house and had a new bt HH6 on the new property, in my old property I had HH5.

When I am connected locally on that hub both wireleass or wired, I cannot use the domain name to access the server, it hangs with timeout. I never had this proplem on HH5. When I connect remotely it connects with no problems on the three ports I use, 80, 443, and 8090

Is there any issue or a way to configure HH6 to allow me to connect? 

I have the following settings

Re: cannot connect to local machine using dynamic dns with domain name

Welcome to this user forum.

The home hub 6 does not support NAT Loopback, which is why it does not work.

You can always use your HH5, or a third party router.
