I have a recent Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 standalone deployment on Windows Server 2008 within a local domain.  I want to let users log into the site from non-domain computers at home as well as their workstations at work.  I have assigned the server an external IP address and am now able to access the server externally from a non-domain computer via http://serverIPaddress/sites/sitename but I get a logon prompt that does not accept my credentials and shoots me out after 3 attempts.  I can log onto the site locally (does not require logon credentials) using http://servername/sites/sitename, but when I try connecting locally through the IP I get the same response as if I were trying to do so externally.  The site is set up to use NTLM authentication and users logon automatically when accessing the site if they are already logged into the domain.

Are you using Domain\Username for the Username line?

If I use domain\username, I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message."  If I use username only, the prompt comes back up with IPaddress\username and asks me for my password.

Any authentication will require the Domain\Username (unless you have jumped through some pretty tricky hoops on your IIS).

Meanwhile that sounds like it accepts the authentication, but then fails getting to the page, could this be a port on a firewall problem?

The Sharepoint site is running off of port 80 and it is port 80 to which I have forwarded the the IP address through my firewall.

It stays on "Connecting to x.x.x.x. . .  for several seconds and does nothing when I use telnet.  I do get a response with ping though.

Ping is to the IP on port 8.

You have port 80 blocked somewhere.
