I've read the official guide for the static NAT action and have configured that and it's working well:
http://www.watchguard.com/help/docs...tent/en-US/nat/nat_static_config_about_c.html

And now I'm trying to create a NAT Loopback to allow the same IP/DNS to be used internally or externally per these instructions:
http://www.watchguard.com/help/docs...loopback_static_c.html?Highlight=nat loopback

But for some reason the loopback doesn't want to work.

I've tried creating separate snat actions for each external interface just for the loopback and then a new policy rule--didn't work.

I've adding any-trusted to the existing policy rule along with any-external--didn't work.

I've tried creating a any-external snat action just for the loopback and then a new policy rule--didn't work.

I don't know of what else to try. At this point I would normally open a case with Watchguard, but the contract is long gone and renewing costs more than buying another router.

This is an M200 running 11.10.4.B490278. Any assistance appreciated. (y)

Someone on another forum suggested I check the ordering of the rules as another rule may keep the any-internal rule from working. I'm going to try that and see what happens although I thought I tried it before already.

So it was the ordering of the rules that was the problem. I created a separate rule for any-trusted and started it at the top where it worked and moved it down until I found the culprit. Thank you all!
