Apache 2 Server - Can't access it via ip address from inside LAN

Basically I have an Apache server up and running on my Fedora Core 2 computer inside my LAN. My router is forwarding port 80 to the computer, and I can access the server via localhost on it, via its internal ip address from other computers on the LAN, and via the external ip address on computers outside of the LAN.
The only problem is that I can't access it from the server via the external ip address. This isn't really a problem, but I was wondering why it doesn't work.

Your router probably doesn't loop the connection back inside your network.
