I think you mean htdig, not htmerge. You need to use two different config
files for htdig (or rundig) and htsearch. Use the 2nd url_part_aliases
definition above with htdig so it digs the internal site, and use the
1st url_part_aliases definition with htsearch, so it reports the external
site addresses in search results.
Your other option would be to use http_proxy to dig your site through
a proxy, to get at it using the external addresses directly.
