Why can't I access my public IP from internal network?

We have a website hosted by another hosting company. If I type in their public IP from a computer on our internal network I can access the website just fine. This is not my problem.

We are trying to set up a second website but doing our own hosting for this one. The server is located on our private network. We have a public IP from our ISP. From outside our network I can type that public IP into my browser and the website appears just fine. However, if I try to type the same public IP into my browser from a computer located on our private network, I can't access the site.

What am I missing?

most likeley your router of your private network is not configured properly

You cann use
  traceroute your-external-IP
to check how to reach that web server
(on windoze you have to use tracert instead)

There was a little setting in the firewall under the port forwarding section that wasn't allowing local access to the port. Made this change and now I'm good to go.
