I have solved the same issue with views, one internal and one external in my case. I have the same names both internal and external and different IPs.

Views may become too complex in your case. ymmv

When outside it needs to resolve to my public ip.   Everything Ive done so far with my dns records has returned 2 ip's.  In otherwords when doing a host servername or nslookup servername I get both the external and internal ip's of the server.  This seems to be causing issues with the applicatons on the server.  Some computers inside my network are trying to connect to the public ip (which is being natted from my firewall), those that are connecting are extremely slow.  The slowness leads me to believe that they are first trying the public ip before hitting the private.

What I want to happen is the url or name of the server to be the same regardless of where the user is either inside or outside my network.
