Accessing a Hosted Database through a Cellular Data Network

Please forgive me if this question has been answered elsewhere.


If i am connected via Wifi to my network i can access the Databases hosted on my FM Server no problem. It was so easy it's amazing!!


If i turn wifi off and try to access my server via my Cellular Network it is obviously a different story. I appreciate that the IP address used when on Wifi is an internal address and i probably need to point to an external ip address for the server etc..


Is there any documentation that outlines what needs to be done to allow Cellular access? Questions like does IIS need to be enabled on the server, do any ports need to be opened or port forwarding set etc?


Any help would greatly appreciated.


I have looked for this info but haven't been able to find any docs or help.
