Telnet with public IP will not connect

I have a Samsung iDCS phone system with Voice Mail that I can access via Telnet using the network port and the private IP I assigned it. I used a 1-to-1 NAT on my firewall and assigned it a public IP. Using this IP it will not connect.
I tested the Telnet service through the firewall using another server with the same setup and was successful.
Why can I not connect to my phone system this way?

Most likely your phone system does not have a route back to the internet. Did you give it a static route?

It has the DNS server address.

Right. I don't know how to add routes to this device, but does it have a valid route to the internet? A default gateway? Is the dns server on your network or on the internet?

The DNS server is on the network.

What type of configuration interface do you have? is there any place to set a default gateway or add routes?

As far as I can tell the system has no way to add a default route to it. It has the capability to add a remote VOIP network, which is essentially adding a static route, but it does not seem to have the capability to add a default route. So, most likely, your telnet connection reaches the device, but the device does not know how to get back because it does not have a default route. This seems to be a deliberate security limitation.
