The server which does address translation may close the connections
if they are iddle for too long. I had this trouble with long-lasting
idle SSH connections.
If you connect from inside, each time you may (depending on how the
firewall is configured) get another ,,source port''. Depending
on your configuration it _may_ cause the problem.
