Unable to see external IP from internal IPs

I have a 1720 running NAT and doing some port forwarding to a server for web and ssh requests. If I try to access my server on an internal machine (192.168.1.*) by going to the external IP of the router (216.155.*.*) I get a "connection refused". If I try to connect from an internal machine to the internal IP of the router (192.168.1.254) I can get in fine. If I try to access the router from another location, say home, I can get to it just fine. Is there a setting I am missing to allow my internal IPs to see the external IP of the router?

Thanks,

Charlie

It should work. I would enable debug ip packet to get more insight on why the connection is being refused.

external is the view from the outside. If your inside going to inside the nat will not occur.
