I can use this IP to connect to our Intranet web site but Samba doesn't work correctly when trying to connect to it from outside.  Our internal network addresses work fine.  Even a VPN connection, which gets our internal address scheme works.  But, when trying to use the publicly available IP address to connect to Samba it can't find it.

Do you have a wireshark sniff?  It could be a number of things.  Are 
your firewalls configured properly with your routing table?
