Trouble publishing WFS to external users

I have ArcGIS Server 10 SP3 Java installed on a Windows VM.

The only way I can get a WFS Service available to the internet is by using external capabilities files that I have manually generated and have also manually changed all the internal machine references to external.  The problem is that every time the underlying data changes, the capabilities files need to be changed(manually).

My question is this:
Is there anyway for ArcGIS Server to automatically populate the default WFS capabilities file with my external URL???
