I have som trouble with connection to my port forwarded www server from
LAN and from firewall. (from Internet it works)
I use three-interface firewall with masquerading LAN & DMZ and port
forwarding some services.

lynx from firewall to www.myserver.sk returns:

Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx from firewall to local IP for the first ask me to allow cookies,
and then returns:

When I tried www.myserver.sk from LAN, the Squid returns:

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.myserver.sk/ 

The following error was encountered: 

Connection Failed 
The system returned: 

    (111) Connection refusedThe remote host or network may be down.
Please try the request again.

And when I tried local IP of myserver, the web browser still resolve it
to www.myserver.sk and then returns the same error like above.

Plesase, where is the problem? I thnik that rules between each other
zones I set correctly.

Thanks for any advice.
