      This tutorial by Mossywell may be of some use -
      How to set up port forwarding to an internal server of any type

      Please pay attention to the note on web servers with Sky BB.

      If it does not work, it's got to be your end.

      Check you have added the rules to incoming not outgoing. Check if you have a software firewall, if you have: Try tuning it off

      Make sure the IP of your PC is correct, ie 192.168.0.2 etc

      If you are still having problems, it may be a good idea to start again by resetting your router. To do this push a biro point into the small hole at the rear and hold it there until the lights flash, usually about 10 secs. The router must be fully powered up when you do this. This will remove all the settings you have made, allowing you to follow the guides recommended from a clean slate.
