This is a rather broad general question with a bazillion ways to answer.
What specifically are you trying to test; the firewall, the application
layer, the server/network? While there are tools which can touch on some or
all of these focus areas with varying degrees of success, without more
information on your particular needs it will be difficult for list members
to provide you with solid recommendations on tools or techniques.

I'm hoping Farrukh responds with more detail for us but I let this post
through to the list in hopes that members could take one of the possible
vectors I list above and run with it.

added firewall on my server and I would like to test security 
of our server from out side of allowed network. Can you

the server.
