Can't see Web page on Windows 2000 Server

I have a problem with my Web server. I am running Windows 2000 IIS and a NAT/Virtual server. The router is set correctly as my Linux box, but I can't see my Web page on my Windows 2000 Server externally. Internally, I can see Web pages using the local IP as well as the WAN IP, but not externally. Can you help?

Verify that your website's DNS records are configured appropriately on a publicly available DNS server (you can troubleshoot this by connecting to the website using its IP address). If this is successful, you are having a DNS configuration issue.

You can also run a packet sniffer such as Network Monitor or Ethereal to determine how network traffic is being transmitted to and from your router, and if any packets are being dropped or otherwise blocked.
