I have a server I have been working with at a remote location, I can remote desktop to it from inside the network but not outside. When I get on the network I can ping this server, and ping other servers from it. From the server I can ping say google.com and resolve the IP address but cant actually ping. I can't get any real traffic in or out of this thing for some reason but all internal traffic seems to work fine, any ideas?

Firewall rules.

Chances are, how you "get into" the network, there are rules that allow you only that way... and the firewall is blocking direct external traffic going to your server.

agreed. What kind of firewall solution do you use? Whats the OS and set up on server?
