I don't think that's possible unless you set up port forwarding on the router ( Basically by pinging the external address you are pinging the interface on the router not the server.

Also, you will only be able to use one gateway at a time on the server unless you set up HSRP on the two routers that control the internet (if they are Cisco routers that is...)
