This message is not related to you httpd: this is somebody trying to
connect to MS-SQL on your machine...

How are you connecting to the internet: through ppp0? Why are you using
DNAT? If you have the fixed IP address on ppp0, all you need to do is
setting the appropriate ALLOW rule:
AllowWeb	net	fw
as you don't need to forward traffic to another machine.
