Thanks for the answer. Sorry as my name shows Im a noob if I understand well this is not a native solution ? you created a nameserver on your client to redirect to the lan ip ? or is this a separate machine ? is that right ? can you elaborate a bit more please
Your router will automatically redirect you to your server, if it detects that it is in your LAN. At least that is what happens on my end. I didn’t have to set up a nameserver or anything else. When I’m connected to the same LAN as my server, the speed goes up dramatically.
That said, if you have a separate subnet for your server, this might not work. Your server and client need to be in the same subnet, if I recall correctly. For example:
With a standard subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
Try it out, open up your task manager and look at the network speed when you upload a large file.
I think this feature in the router is called dns remind. Not every router supports that unfortunately, but I agree, that should be tried first.
If that doesn’t work and you have a stationary machine at home (always and only LAN connection required) you can also modify your hosts file, to direct the traffic to the LAN address of your server. For example:
