    if you don't have an externally visible IP address, then your gateway, or whatever machine is performing the NAT/Proxy has to be configured to direct requests on that port to your machine internally, and since you don't have access to that machine (most likely) you can't do it

    yeh that's what i guessed....
    'coz when i entered the router ip(i.e. gateway) in my browser it was not opening .... so probably i don't have the permission....
    so i think i will have to contact the webmaster to do so......
    Am i right?

    yep. I'm guessing the network admin probably doesnt want you hosting anything though.

    I've worked around these kind of setups using VPNs, but its a fairly limited workaround since users need to be on your VPN to access your server. look into Hamachi
