The stremen.xs4all.nl and IP number resides in the modem and external
users can indeed access my web site without problem, because external
requests on port 80 are forwarded to my web server.

But you solved my problem: adding stremen.xs4all.nl as an alias to the
internal LAN IP solved it.

Many thanks for such a quick reply.
