Hey, Snippy.

I'm glad you know you have a router, because that'll save some time. What you need to do is forward the port 2890 to allow incoming connections on your router. If that doesn't work, we need to set up a DMZ host. That probably doesn't make alot of sense, but that's okay right now. First, do you happen to know what kind of router you have? Popular brands are 'Linksys' or 'D-Link'. Look around on your router to see if you notice either name there. Secondly, do you know if you have Service Pack 2? If you go into the control panel, under System, it should tell you just under "System: Microsoft Windows XP".
