Yes, you missed the actual question. The use of the word 'ping' is a
misnomer, what he really meant to say that from a host on the internet
he is receiving an internal 192.168.x.x IP address as the response (he
pinged a FQDN which in turn does a lookup to obtain the IP). Without
seeing the full config (which has been asked for) it's pointless
speculating on possible reasons for this as there are quite a few.
