it is very difficult to suggest what is going over there, without actually seeing the connection string itself..

At times like this I visit the below website and validate my connection string...
http://www.connectionstrings.com/

it has connection strings for all databases and all sorts of drivers... this might be of some help..

if it does not then, please post the connection string and also the error that you are getting.

ive tried this site before but it didnt work

<add name="ExtDatabase" connectionString="Data Source=tcp:xx.xx.xx.xxx;Database=WeddingList;User Id=SQLServer-PC\Simon;Password=xxxxxx;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

the internal connection works but it doesnt need to go through my router and be port forwarded

Data Source=190.190.200.100,1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;
User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

but its not getting through

The first one pretty much matches what our site is using.
  <add name="xxxxxx" connectionString="Data Source=xxxxxx;Initial Catalog=xxxxx;User ID=xxxxx;Password=xxxxx;Connection Timeout=60;Max Pool Size=500;"
   providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

Here is one that I use that works.

<add name="ConnectionString_dev" connectionString="Data Source=serverName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=web_ID;Password=webPassword;Connection timeout=60" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

Make sure that you can connect through SQL Management using the same user name and password.

 <add name="IntDatabase" connectionString="Data Source=IPADDRESS;Initial Catalog=WeddingList;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=xxxxxxxx" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
