That's your problem.  The applet-serving code is supplying the *internal*
IP address to the applet, which of course is unroutable from the Internet.
Your best fixes are:
- Use a native client to connect to the external box, or
- Run a HTTP server on the external box, port 5805, serving the applet and
it's enclosing page, or
- Run a HTTP server on the internal box, port 5805, serving the same pages
as normal but 'staticised' with the external box's IP.
