DNS is your address for the web
localhost will work without internet services.


if you cant access your site from the web ie typing in your DNS.
1 your routers ports maybe closed
2 your nat for your router could be configured wrong
3 your server might not be started


from the sound of what you are saying you routers DMZ host might not be correct. On your mac you will use the DMZ host ip address as your network ip address in the preferences pane

      If your running windows, you need to make changes to your host file located in winnt\system32\drivers\etc. You'll be able to map your url to 127.0.0.1 or whatever intranet site you have on your LAN.
