MS SQL log shipping problem

wasabi3689 used Ask the Experts™
I am using MS SQL 2008

I am configuring MS SQL 2008 log shipping method for one of the database

My primary backup is resided on my office PC, and my secondary log shipping server is resided in another location outside of my office's network.

Both primary and secondary servers have MS SQL server 2008 installed.

After I successfully set up backup  from primary server, I try to set up secondary server. I have the following trouble

I cannot connect to my secondary server by MS Management Studio. I tried Windows mode and SQL mode with user name and password. But it doesn't work?

Can someone help me with this

If it is in another network you should not be  able to connect to it. At least if you dont have a VPN or a Static IP for the secondary server.
