Can you tell us more about your home set-up? Presumably you have
some sort of router doing NAT and DHCP? Tell us about it.

If you don't know IP address of your internal server, than chances
are that it was assigned via DHCP by your router. For what you want
to do, you should probably reconfigure the server with a specific
internal IP address instead of having it assigned.
Assuming that I've guessed correctly about your set-up:
First find out from your router what the the range of the "DHCP pool"
is. Look at the DHCP configuration on your router. Then pick an
address that is NOT in that range but still part of your local
network. Then use sysinstall on your FreeBSD box to give it that IP
Many of the details depend on details of your set-up which I don't
know, so it is hard to be more specific.
