When I create a self signed SSL certificate with IIS 7.5 I can connect to the site from the local server and from other computers on the windows domain.

However when I connect externally I get a SSL connection error in IE/FireFox/Chrome

Chrome: Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.

FireFox: SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

IE: Connection Error

Any ideas?

This isn't the answer to your question, but may be a solution to your problem.  Rather than using a self-signed certificate take a look at StartSSL.com - they issue free certificates which are trusted by all major browsers.
