Yes sure blocking everything is most secure but not always right choice.

Well ok let's assume your solution? But what DNS has to do with IP address?
Also I would prefer if mono could have this functionality build in and that
if some on needs it like me so we can enable it...  so maybe there is a
trick to make it happen with mono box by itself?

Hi Alex,

Of course you cannot use your External IP from your Internet LAN as that
would require dropping a lot of security that a real firewall (ie
m0n0wall compared to a D-Link router) affords.  An internal DNS Server
that maps "external.domain.name" to the Internal IP is the best way to
achieve your goal, or alternatively, use the internal address for
internal machines - this however doesn't take care of roaming machines
like the DNS solution does.
