Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have an web server behind a DSL Modem with a fixed I.P.
I can get Http from a lan ip with a lan pc. I Can get Http from wan ip from any other site.
I basically want to be able to "see" my wan http adresses like others do , i.e. open my wan page from behind the same modem.
My site is both hosted by a company and it calls for my local (home) server as part of the application... works fine.
My problem is that i need to be able to test the prog at home and get page cannot be displayed when using a wan ip from a lan p.c. (only parts of the prog have wan address (of my home) and i don't want to have to edit these out each time i test)
When i had a cable modem , this worked.
Now I get the modem admin page (although the modem's wan remote admin is disabled, but i assume that this is because i'm a valid lan manager of the modem
If i disable managment alltogether, page cannot be displayed
this is tracert from lan to wanip

rosscoad is right it is a nat issue or more a firewall issue. We had this problem at work and it turned out that the firewall(like any good firewall shouldn't) wont allow inside traffic to loop back to keep you from having a problem with people spoofing internal ip address to bypass the firewall.
