Split DNS

I am very new to Internet setup.  Recently, I had Netscape walk me through the setup of an Enterprise server, which I had done almost correctly beforehand :)  I am using split dns, and for some reason the netscape server bound to the internal network ip address instead of the external (i.e. Internet) address.  If I bring up the LAN IP (internal) Address of the machine in Netscape, I get the base web page.  How do I configure it so that it recognizes and binds to the external (Internet-reachable) IP address??

hi...

start the admin server (i.e. /usr/ns-home/start-admin)
in your Netscape browser (I've found IE to be unable to work w/ Netscape's admin interface), point to the server and add the port that was displayed to you after running start-admin on the end of the URL.  

example:
/usr/ns-home/start-admin
warning: daemon is running as super-user
startup: listening to port 6766 as root

in Netscape you'd then go to http://host-or-IP:6766

log in with the admin account.
select your server from the list (if you have a list, you might only have that one server)
under system settings click Network Settings
change the value in the "Bind To Address" field to whatever IP you'd like.  
click OK and then Save and Apply...
it should restart automatically unless you're running version 2.01 or less on Solaris 2.6 and then I'd go run the stop and start scripts from the command line.
