Keep Apache from going beyond the LAN on internal requests

Hi, I hope someone will answer this one!

I have apache2 running a site ( and since I am in the try/study/break/do-it-again face of learning how to make things work I access the web server a fair bit from the LAN (on the same subnet as the server).

However, accesing from the net is somewhat slower than accessing the internal IP of the server. I have a lot of traffic from my router to the ISP and back that I hope can be avoided.


Can I make Apache web server realice that requests from the same subnet is internal and make it not resolve addresses ?

AND at the same time obviously have full access from the internet.

The main page runs wordpress and setting wordpress' URL to the internal IP makes things really snappy, but inaccessible from internet.
