If you can't access the site directly with a web browser
from outside your network, then a redirect will do you no good.  It simply
tells the browser to make a new request with a new hostname.

If I understand your question correctly, you need to have both external
addresses associated with the gateway machine.  Then the gateway machine
must pass requests for the internal machine through using either port
forwarding (at the OS level) or proxying (at the apache level).
