Have you checked the IP address associated with the domain name? It
sounds like the domain name is being associated with the IP of the DSL
router. Check DNS and your IP tables.

Subject: [K12OSN] domain name loops back to dsl router

Hello ALL,

I have a strange one here, or so it is to me. I setup another 4.4.1
K12LTSP box at my house. I got my own domain name for this box,and what
happening is, when i enter my domain name locally the browser winds up
redirecting to the dsl modem/router interface that i have from the dsl
This is not actually redirecting to ip address of the server ,it is the
assigned to the router. I have disabled all port forwards trying to
reslove it, but still same thing. I am guessing it is something maybe i
have setup on the dns provider( easydns). But i surely cant get it
out:(. I have to vnc to a machine outside my lan in order to make sure
example my home page is working or mailman etc.
The website comes up fine on a remote machine so it appears to be
correctly, I can also email fine, with this domain name. In the
i have made sure direct connection to internet is checked just seeing if
can get anything to make it see my domain name locally.
Not sure if the nating is causing something in this?
