      Hi Praveen,
          right now What i can think of here, are the following options -
      1) Very first, if u r on public network - change ur SQL default Port 1433 to other port.
      2) Use Network Address Table(NAT) - which will translate ur public IP to Private IP where end-user will not come to know abt ur public Ip and passed private ip is not exist.
      3) U can install Internet Security & Acceleration Server(ISA) - enable Outgoing port communication but block the incomings.
      For the other FrontPage problem..i have no idea but will try to find.
      Please let me know if you have any questions..
