Bind DNS help!

Hi,

i have setup a forward dns entry and i have specified the ip 192.169.x.x (i got this ip from the ifconfig command)

Now when i do nslookup finds the domain perfectly but the problem is that it can be only viewable privately not publically viewable.

I am not sure how to make the domain publically viewable , but what i was thinking is that If i check the main ip address from the www.whatismyip.com and replace my private ip with it. Will that work. or need some other way.

Please help.
