--> 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.
Check the headers for your unsubscription address
