    images not displaying when accessing site externally

    I have setup the moodle box we have to a local ip address and got external ip address to access it from outside of school .
    My problem is that the images are pointing to 10. address so when you browse externally will the 80. address the image is missing. (we are having to point the images to the 80 address)
    I thought the NAT would handle this. The rest of the site is accessible.
    We have tried it from several machines at home.
    Moodle v 1.9
    server 2003 r2
    running wamp

    Another solution is to use relative urls where possible!
    Eg img src=../../images/foo.jpg rather than include the full, canonical URL, as this will let the browser interpret the link.

    NAT works a few levels too low down the network layer model to handle this - theoretically a layer7 reverse http proxy could handle such a job but I have never seen this in practice.
