bind9 config issue

Hi I am running a bind9 server and the thing is - I am not really sure I understood it right...

When I try to lookup here:
I get which is good, since it is the server with web on my local network (am connecting from another external IP now something like 78 ... ..... ). The external ip of the server network ( is 213...... can I do this somehow:

have DNS query run to my server at 213 ..... => get the host (which is 192.168 something, ) , get the page I requested and somehow maquarade the address ( to external ip 213....

??? Please

You need to provide different addresses depending on whether the request originates from inside or outside your network. Read up on split horizon, views and so on ... the are a couple of ways to set this up.
