Base url for site on a server farm

Topics: General

My site is deployed to a server farm (2 internal IPs behind a firewall). For the Base url setting under Settings > General, I have been able to use either of the IP addresses. When I try to change it to the fully qualified base url of my website (www.domainname.com), I get the following message:

The base url you entered could not be requested from current location.

Any idea why this might be happening? If left as is, would one server get more load than the other?

This means that inside the internal network, the website might be requested using a different url. Can you ask your provider for this information ?
