SBS 11 Remote Web Access with Static IP

We recently upgraded our internet connection with a static IP, and our RWA site no longer is connecting outside of our intranet. Do I have to change settings somewhere in IIS or somewhere else? I'm not too strong on the RWA bit, so any help would be appreciated.

Inside the local intranet, I can access https://remote.(companyname).com, but from outside the website, I get the standard, "webpage is not avaiable/server might be temporarily down" message.

I'm running SBS 2011.

Did you update the external DNS with your new IP?
If you ping remote.companyname.com, does it return your static IP?
If not, then you need to go to your web host (i.e. godaddy, network solutions, etc...) and just update the 'A' record to your new IP.
