I created a new sharepoint site using the Sharepoint Administrator website.  It created just fine and setup the database and IIS7 entries as expected.  I opened the random port it generated through the firewall.  I am able to browse the site and login to it from the Internet outside the network.  I cannot login and get to the side inside the network (intranet).

I can get to CompanyWeb (sharepoint default site) just fine.  Compared authentication settings and they seem the same.   I checked IE8 settings and added it to the trusted sites list.  Put the security to low for trusted sites.  I get prompted the default 3 times for logon, and then just a blank white page.  No problems from outside the network.  I am only trying from the server, but have done that before on other servers and sites.  Any ideas what is going on?
