I have set up my site using the PHP site assistant and it works fine from the local network. If I want to access it remotely what should the correct path be in the URL?

I am trying http://my_external_IP/focus/home.php - but it wont work. Error 404

If I type http://my_internal_IP/focus/home.php from within my LAN it works fine.

I have set port forwarding to push traffic on 16000 and 16001..are there other ports that need to be open for php to work? What am I doing wrong?

port 80?

Port 80 is the web server port which is what matters. You send a request to your web server over port 80, the web server sends the request to PHP, PHP talks to FileMaker locally (any ports you needed open, are really just ignored here if FMS and the web server are on the same machine), PHP processes the data and sends the information back to the web server which sends it back to you over port 80.

If that for some reason doesn't help out, here's a handy diagram: http://sixfriedrice.com/wp/filemaker-firewall/
