Will that work? I have my name server configured with my local ip. Should I use my externel?
Do *NOT* use your Local IP in your DNS settings. I assume that you want your server accessible by longname from the Internet. To do this, you must have an "A" record in your DNS settings pointing to the Public IP of your site.
This is contengent on your having a static IP; if it changes when you reboot, then you need to take a look at a dynamic DNS solution.
