Setting CallPilot 150 Internal IP


I am a network guy who has gotten sucked into a Call Pilot 150 problem.  I work for a school system and we have 6 or 8 of these at school sites.  The district phone guys decided they want to be able to manage them from the web interface.  Easy enough, right?  So I get my trusty laptop, my cross over cable, set up the IPs, jack in, and log on - no problem.  We are doing NAT inside the network, so I try to assign the beast a NATed IP - something like - After setting the rest of the paramaters (gateway and DNS servers), I click the Apply button (or whatever it is) and it gives me a polite, but insistant message that I have to enter a "Fully Qualified IP Address"...

I cannot believe that I can't give this a NATed IP - Any help would be appreciated!
