It saddens me that I'm not as computer savvy as I believed, and that I could pick this stuff up with just minimal instruction >| Nevertheless, I put this out there in the hopes that a Good Samaritan will come to my assistance.

Here's the dealy: I've got a fileserver at home that I'd like to see outside the network. All computers at home are behind a router, so obviously that has to come into play.

Server: Ubuntu 8.10 Server Edition, running LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, though I believe for now the "LA" portion is what's important; correct me if I'm wrong)
Router: Westell Versalink, but I have access to forwarding rules on it.

What I'd like to do: be able to see the shared files on the server from outside the network. Now, since I figured port 80 (HTTP) is blocked by Verizon, I opened another port and configured apache appropriately. I can even see that the new port is open on the server (nmap 192.168.x.x -p Y, where Y is the new port), but I still cannot see the server if I type in the router address.

Halp? Thanks a bunch.
