Accessing Alfresco Share remotely

First, I have Community 3.4c intalled on a Windows 2008 R2 server and IIS.
Second, it appears I can succesfully login and access Alfresco Explorer, both internally and remotely.
Third, I have this server on a separate LAN IP Range (192.168.53.x) from my other servers and workstations (which are on 192.168.1.x).

My problem is with Alfresco Share.  I intially had some issues with displaying the login screen from the server. Using IE, the login screen would not display if I used: http://127.0.0.1:8080/share, although it did work from Firefox. When I say 'not displayed', the login box would not appear, I'd just get a grey screen. However, it worked if I used 'localhost' instead - http://localhost:8080/share.

To resolve this, I found that I that adding 'http://127.0.0.1' to IE's Trusted Sites allowed the login screen to display when using 127.0.0.1.

But now I'm trying to login to Alfresco Share from a remote computer, and I get the same grey screen as before. I get this with both IE or Firefox. Any thoughts?
