ok, well theres a few ways to do this, you can put your computer in DMZ, which means that your computer will be completely open to the internet. go to the website of the manufacturer of your router, find how to login to it, type the password. Find your computer name under the DHCP list, find the IP address the router has assigned it, then go to advanced controls, DMZ, and put in the last 3 digits of the IP address the router gave you. Voila and your done. Or you can do packet forwarding. I don't know what ports it uses but I'm sure you can find it on google.com and then set it up.

port 80 is for web browsing. it should be open because I'm assuming your browser works.

A quick and dirty and almost accurate writeup...

A computer is a lot like an apartment building... at least from a network standpoint.  The computer has one or more interfaces to the network.    Each interface has an IP address, just like an apartment building has an address.  (An interface can listen to more than one IP address, but this isn't often done.) Each IP address is broken into 65,536 ports for TCP traffic and another 65,536 ports for UDP traffic.  Think of a port as an apartment number... the apartment complex has a single address (IP address), but each individual suite has its own number (port number).

When you put a firewall on your network, it is like putting a security gate outside the apartment building.  The security guard knows to let anybody that he sees going out come back in, but nobody is allowed to come in that he doesn't know about.  If you want to let a friend in, you have to tell the security guard to let your friend through the gate.

So to get your fire share to work, you first need to figure out what ports the software communicates over.  Some ports are well known... 80 is web, 110 is pop3, 22 is ssh, etc.  Usually ports <1024 are reserved for the operating system while ports >=1024 are free for applications to use.

Once you know the port number, you need to login to your firewall (read the manual) and enable the port so that when traffic comes into the firewall at the port you specify, the traffic will be sent on to your computer.

Good luck!  :smile:
