Can't connect to Vine Server Externally

This is starting to bug me now. I’ve triple checked my port forwarding, but i still can’t access my mac from an external network.

I can connect fine to it using other machines on my local network, windows and mac.

The external address shows up as red on the main server screen, so it seems to think that its blocked. but no matter what IP i set my mac to (and making the same changes on my firewall) it never goes “green”. Only setting that should be unique on my mac is i am using DHCP with manual address.

Running 10.5.6 and my router is Running dd-wrt. ports forwarded: 5900-5902.

Thanks in advance

i don’t what i did, but after a few times of restarting the whole process, it worked.
