Getting Timeout Calling EJB from Remote Location

I'm really stuck on this one. I can successfully run my webstart swing application which makes EJB 3.0 calls to my JBoss 5.1.0 server when I'm on the local network, but not when I'm outside. In that case, I get timeouts and
"Could not obtain connection to any of these urls: pf.servername.org:1099". Full exception is toward the bottom. Firewall is off. All appropriate ports are forwarded. Even more confusing, I'm able to see the website that I've put the .jnlp and jarfiles on for downloading. That works fine, jsp debugging output comes through on server. The logical layout is as follows
Server Router Outside Domain External Client 192.168.1.7 192.168.1.1 pf.servername.org Any.IP (DOESN'T WORK!!) Local Client 192.168.1.100 (THIS WORKS! Even when using pf.servername.org for all references!) At first I suspected blocked ports, but everything seems to be fine. My server is as follows. As mentioned above, I can run with all server references using pf.servername.org and it all works as expected.

On the server Running my JBoss application 'pf', everything starts up without warnings or exceptions. I see the EJBs no problem. Startup command:
./run.sh -b 192.168.1.7 -c pf Ports Forwarded # Name Start Port End Port Server IP Address 7 PF 8080 8080 192.168.1.7 8 HTTPS 443 443 192.168.1.7 9 RMI 8083 8083 192.168.1.7 10 PFIC 1090 1099 192.168.1.7 11 PFRMIC 4444 4444 192.168.1.7 12 PFEJB 3873 3873 192.168.1.7 13 bisocket 4457 4457 192.168.1.7 Made sure no firewall
# /etc/init.d/iptables stop iptables: Flushing firewall rules: OK iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter OK iptables: Unloading modules: OK hosts is simple, but has references # cat /etc/hosts # hostname viper added to /etc/hosts by anaconda 127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 viper ::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 viper 192.168.1.7 viper Any of the online port checkers say that 1099 is open.

On the external client: After swing jar has downloaded via webstart and runs, output in console
Logger.java:239: Failed to connect to pf.servername.org:1099 javax.naming.CommunicationException: Failed to connect to server pf.servername.org/68.xxx.45.160:1099 Root exception is javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException: Failed to connect to server pf.servername.org/68.xxx.45.160:1099 Root exception is java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.getServer(NamingContext.java:335) at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.checkRef(NamingContext.java:1734) at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:693) at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:686) at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(Unknown Source) ...

Any help, thoughts much appreciated! Thanks, Tim

I should point out that even though my client works locally, I do get these "errors" that don't prohibit functionality. PFPersister is an EJB Logger.java:228: Couldn't handle invocation directly within

Searching groups for this hasn't yet shown what the problem is here.
