I think that he means the external interface, and not
a public address.
We do the same here. We are connected via the county, so our
extenal I/F has a private IP address in the same range as our router. The
county host our domain address and then their DNS forwards onto us. We also
only hold internal addresses in our DNS, and all others are passed onto the
county's DNS servers for resolution.
Thanks - Clear now. :-)
