Off of the top of my head, I do know what the problem is, I think, but I'm so rusty with this stuff I'll leave a solution to others.
The problem is that your local lan doesn't go thru the router to get to a server ON the local lan. But since you don't have your own dns server for your local lan your comp's on the local lan resolve the server's IP address as the address of the WAN, or your public IP.
I beleive all you have to do is to add an entry to the hosts file.
This file is looked into before looking it up with dns.
The only bad thing about this is you have to do it on every comp in the lan.
I'm sure someone else will come up with a more elegant solution, but alas my networking skills are a might rusty.
