openvpn and shorewall problem from outside network

i got openvpm and shorewall to work inside my local network fine. i can connect to the vpn server from any local client. the problem is , that i can't connect from outside.

I added this line in the rules file inside shorewall/:

DNAT net loc: udp 1194
DNAT loc loc: udp 1194 - 12.x.x.x = my vpn server
12.x.x.x = external ip

What's this supposed to do? you're DNATing from the local network to a machine that's on the local network??

Try removing this and see how it works.
