WordPress with Lan and Wan Access?

Can someone suggest tutorials on how to properly set up a wordpress multisite installation that I can access from both the LAN and WAN side? I’ve been looking for a bit and am unable to find what i’m looking for.
I’m using an Ubuntu server (on VirtualBox) behind my router. I have my domain name setup to forward to my router and it is port forwarding properly. But, what I really want to do is have my site (locally hosted) be accessible from the LAN as well as the WAN. Right now it’s one or the other based on how I play with the dashboard>options panel… I don’t mind reinstalling if it means having a proper setup.

For LAN access add the following to the /etc/hosts file: (ip of WordPress server) domain.com


localhost domain.com

if the server is on the same machine

Make sure that local loopback (or simply loopback) is enabled in the network options of your router.

Or if you are using your router for DNS, you can alternatively set up a DNS entry with your serverslocal IP for the domain.
