Hello,

I'm hosting a website (www.mm-theory.com) out of my home. I am able to get to my website from outside my home network but not inside. I'm wondering if someone can help me troubleshoot this.

I'm told that possibly the problem is that my router doesn't have "reflection" enabled, but I'm not 100% sure what that is or how to enable it.

It means your router can't resolve an external address to an internal address when queried from the inside. 

If you have an internal dns server you can add the web site and associate it with its internal ip address.

If no dns server you can edit the HOSTS file with the www.mm-theory.com and internal ip address. This is a per workstation basis.
