    As always, I answered my own question before anybody else could. No offense, it was probably a stupid question to begin with ( if there is such a thing)

    I was looking for "port fowarding" in router settings.

    Glad you got it working and thanks for posting your solution. It might help others so any info you can add would be terrific.

    Just to be clear, you are talking about the router box that is connected to your internet correct?
    Would not want someone to stumble across this post and get frustrated when they fiddle with their Linux router setting and it still does not work.
