Connecting thought a firewall

I have forwarded all the ports and no go from the outside world. But I can login on the inside world with out any issue. I can’t figure it out, I even made the server name match our public domain name. Ideas? we are using ldap with active directory. I’m I missing something?

How are you trying to connect? What do you specify in the server part in the client? You can try IP address of your external router, where you have forwarded the ports.

Can you ping the server from an ooutside address? Have you added the server to outside DNS?
