Question: Is there a connection timeout when an outside user connects
to an
internal M$-$QL server?

Detail: BM3.6 on N5.1sp5. Static NAT for the sql box, filter allows
stateful IP from the remote user IP address to the sql IP. They
connect but
receive a timeout error message. We can connect from an outside
dialup 'Net
connection with no problem, but the modem bank is within our ISP's
footprint. The remote user having the timeout message connects from
around the world.

Many TIA for your consideration.
