Short answer: Don't make SQL available from your public IP. It's a quick route to having your database hacked.
Longer answer: You haven't posted your rules so nobody could comment anyway. But regardless of all that, I still don't suggest you put your SQL server on a public IP unless you have a sincere desire to become a hacking victim.
Is there a firewall on this mssql server? Did you even enable tcp/ip for mssql? What version of mssql are you running?
I am with muswellhillbilly here - allowing public internet to access your sql not a normally a very good idea.
If someone remote must access the SQL server, make them use a VPN to do it.
Never expose any database directly to the world.
