If you don't have one already, and you need this to work from a bunch of machines inside, set up a DNS server for the inside network with the correct inside NAT address for the internal resources (in addition to caching the external references).

If this is just for your machine, then edit the hosts file with the internal address mapped to the external dns name.

The hosts file is under SYSTEM32\ETC\DRIVERS (which starts under the directory name of either WINDOWS or WINNT)

There are examples in the hosts.sam file, ust edit your hosts in following that format and save it as "hosts" (no .sam extension).

Windows searches that file for address resolution before sending a DNS request (for *nix, it uses /etc/hosts).

Good Luck
