Realex Payments Redirect Only Working From Admin

Hi I'm trying to replace a legacy piece of application with the out of the box Realex payments gateway

When set up and tested via the admin console ( edit and order and "Save and Process Payment" ) everything works a treat

When I go through the store and create a customer order when Realex calls back to CS Cart they get an access denied response

anybody got any idea what or where I should be looking.

thanks you
