--> this is a feature of the Firewall and is supposed to work like 
this. Try to search the list archives for "protect from internal". 
Some people have suggested rules to insert into 
/etc/sysconfig/scripts/SuSEfirewall2-custom to make this work. See 
also no. 25.) in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2

Another solution is split-brain DNS which gives the local clients the 
internal IP when they ask for the name of your webserver.

Good luck!
