If you're behind a nat you'll also have to open some ports so that outside
hits are directed towards your server, or you could just designate your
server as dmz so that all outside hits no matter what port are sent to your
server.  I'd probably do the first not the second so that your security
risk is reduced. WOuld be a good idea to turn off any services that you
don't need too.
