connecting to a remote sql server 2000 server from public network

Howdy experts....

Quick and hopefully easy question.

I have sql server 2005 installed on a brand new HP notebook running Vista Home Premium 64bit.

I have a sql server 2000 server running behind a firewall with a login page to allow temporary access to the server behind the firewall.

Management studio work fine at home or other similar networks but i notice with this new setup (i had XP and server 2000 before) i cannot seem to connect to the remote server from public networks such as ATTwifi at starbucks.  Im on the road a bit so connecting like this is a great help at times (i dont need it always).  I tried to set the ATTwifi network up as a private network thru vista but it still didnt allow a connection.

is there some other mystery setting i am missing? a default public network setting that is automatically set perhaps??? maybe something about certain public network behavior??   i was able to connect before with XP and server 2000 tools and like i stated above I can connect just fine from home and i have tried it at some other friends home locations.


thanks
rich

hmmm correction...

Does AT&T Wi-Fi block any specific types of traffic?

Due to the proliferation of viruses, worms and other malicious activity on the Internet, we block specific ports to increase the security of our network. Specifically, TCP traffic is blocked on ports 80 (inbound), 135 (inbound), 137, 138, 139, 445 and 8053. UDP traffic is blocked on ports 1434, 8053, 8083 and 8084. We regularly update our firewalls to address new and pressing security issues.

would the UDP port 1434 be the culprite?
