Is your internet router or firewall doing NAT? I assume so since you
make refenece to internal/external IP's.
Did you do the special setup on citrix you need to do to get it to work
through NAT? There is a command line you need to enter on the server to
tell it what it's public address is (don't recall what the command is,
but it's in the manuals) AND yu need to set up the client side to use
that (option line needed in the web page if you are doing web based)
Look in the citrix manuals - the answer lies there.
If you get really stick, let me know by posting agaion here and I will
go back and look at exactly what I had to do to get mine working...
