DNS and natd

I've never tried it with natd on freebsd but I have on many routers just
setup a loopback adapter which will allow your hosts which are inside to
loopback into the webserver. I searched through the docs but I can't seem
to find a specific example. Perhaps someone here has some experience with
-Just as an example, my home web hiemstra.us is actually served by
192.168.1.20 on my LAN.
-I don't have any funny DNS going on to get there.
-My router figures out I actually need to get to 184.108.40.206 and routes
the requests through the loopback
-I get the desired page delivered
I'm not 100% sure this is feasible in freebsd but it should be.

Thanks for your reply. I found the "6.1 Creating a mini-DNS system" document
from the Pedantic PPP Primer
Do you think it fits my needs?

Yes, it is an internal DNS setup and I believe "views" requires BIND9. With
BIND8+, you need two DNS setups: 1 for external and 1 for internal
