This is not new, but judging by the number of questions it's generated on the support forums it deserves more publicity.

Here is how the issue is explained in the online documentation:

If your public DNS name or IP address redirects requests to a private iFolder IP address, specify a DNS name (not an IP address) as the public address of the iFolder server. Then, make sure you are using an internal DNS server to resolve the DNS name to the private address for internal users and use an external DNS server to resolve the DNS name to the public address of external users.
