Apache Tomcat Issue

I have several websites (PHP managed by Apache2 and JSP managed by Apache2+Tomcat5 connector) on my Fedora4 server sitting behind a router inside out inner-network.
The problem is that whenever I try to access the JSP sites FROM THE OUTSIDE I keep getting the "Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server" error, this only happens when we try to access JSP based sites and ONLY from external works perfectly when we access these sites BY NAME from inside the network!!!The problem only accures when we try to access from the OUTSIDE!!!
Our router in configured to map the 80 & 8080 ports to the inner WebServer and our DNS is pointing the names toward the router IP. We are using the RemoteAddrValve but even removing these valves don't help or even Allowing the certain external IP Addresses in teh valves declarations don't help either!!!

"Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server"
Is this error being generated by Tomcat, ApacheHTTPD, or by something else?
