You'll have to go to the setup for the router. In there will be a specification for port forwarding if that router handles it. There are certain classes of routers that will not. You may be able to redirect specific ports but it takes a pretty intelligent one to forward a range of ports. If you are using the server as a private one and you're running an exclusive access list, open up a port on the server and leave the router alone. Allow the server to police it's own ports. When you distribute your server address, include the port number in the distribution. Be sure to lock down the port though. I'd use some sort of access list and potentially encryption for security purposes. You might put a shutdown loop in the router to kill hackers though. Strange ports invite hackers.

BTW, this is a woodworking forum but I figured I might give you a quick hand. Many of us are ex IT types.

Good Luck
