Yes, I have that set to my outside URL so people who connect from the  
outside get the correct IP info. If it was set to the internal ip,  
nothing would work outside the LAN.

The question is:

If I tell m0n0wall to override my URL with the internal ip, would the  
web browser re-lookup the DNS info everytime the webserver returns  
the outside URL? If it does re-lookup, then m0n0wall would override  
each request. If that works, I am set.
