[Mailman-Users] internal and external access to Mailman's web site

I apologise if the subject has been handled before; I searched the
archives, but could not find what I wanted to know.

Since short, I am using an ADSL modem, which contains the firewall
as well.  This modem grabs my IP address, and external access to
my web server is done by port forwarding.  This works, no problem.

However, I myself cannot access my web server by it's fully qualified
name (stremen.xs4all.nl), but have to use an internal LAN address
(such as stremen.localnet).  If I access my Mailman web pages, I
have to use this LAN address, however each time I click a related
link, this link points to the FQN, which then does not work;
each time I have to manually change the "stremen.xs4all.nl/" part to
"stremen.localnet/", which is quite annoying.

Is there a solution for this problem?  Have I mis-configured Mailman?
Is this what VIRTUAL_HOSTS is supposed to do?

I should add, that, with the change of modem, I also upgraded my
Linux to SuSE 10.0 with an updated Mailman (2.1.6).  After the
installation of a basic Mailman system, the old lists were simply
copied from the old to the new location.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
