How do i view my web sites from the internal network

I have a block of 5 ip addresses.  I have a website that works to a point (another issue), but when I go to view it by the name www.xxxxxx.com, i get a page cannot be displayed.  I believe this has to do with NAT.  Cannot remember.  I can view the sites fine in VS 2010 but every time i need to view the site from the outside in, i have been using my cell phone that is not on the network.  HELP

have you got the dns configured from your ISP so that when you type www.xxxxx.com it points to one of your public IP addresses? if not ask them to create an a record

Have you opened the port on your fire wall, usually port 80 and pointed that to your internal server. You can see if this works by going to the browser on your phone and just type in the assigned public IP and see if your web page comes up

Yes all that works fine from the outside in,  It is when I want to go to my site from my 192.x.x.x internal network the pages error out.  IE's normal message.  Since i only develop on one machine would a host entry work.

lookup zones are easy if you have access to dns server let me know if you need help. all you need to remember is to put in there any IPs for your internal systems that need to go to external IPs for some business functions, maybe an ftp site or something.
Temp fix until i can figure out how to configure NAT i have a block of 5 ip addresses.
