Local loopback with new business router


Hello All
I recently bought a new business class router for my network. I currently run 13 websites, a DNS server, mail server and ftp server on Redhat 9.0 and currently have only one ip address. I upgraded the router because the old home-class linksys was choking on all the traffic. I could browse all my websites using the linksys and recieve mail from my mail server behind the lan. Unfortunatly the new router does not support local loopback so I can not check on my sites or receive mail over the lan side, although the sites and mail are up and running on the wide area network. I heard that there is something you can do with the dns zone files to fix this but have had no luck yet.

This is what my current zone files look like:

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA ns1.fixit4u.biz. support.macshl.us. (
2003083102; Serial
5000 ; Refresh after 3hrs
3600 ; Retry after 1 hr
604800 ; Expire in 1 week
86400 ) ; Minimum ttl 1 day
IN NS ns1.fixit4u.biz.
IN NS ns2.macshl.us.
macshl.us. IN A 68.15.100.50
www IN CNAME macshl.us.
ftp IN CNAME macshl.us.
mail IN A 68.15.100.50
IN MX 10 mail
macshl.us. IN MX 10 mail.macshl.us.




Would this work?

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA ns1.fixit4u.biz. support.macshl.us. (
2003083102; Serial
5000 ; Refresh after 3hrs
3600 ; Retry after 1 hr
604800 ; Expire in 1 week
86400 ) ; Minimum ttl 1 day
IN NS ns1.fixit4u.biz.
IN NS ns2.macshl.us.
macshl.us. IN A 68.15.100.50
macshl.us. IN A 192.168.1.254
www IN CNAME macshl.us.
ftp IN CNAME macshl.us.
mail IN A 68.15.100.50
mail IN A 192.168.1.254
IN MX 10 mail
macshl.us. IN MX 10 mail.macshl.us.



Thanks for any help.
Mac
