Q.  How can I make a server that's NATed available on the Internet.

A.

1.  Change the settings on your router to forward to the port.
2.  If your IP-address changed use a server to iron that out.

More info:
1.  To forward a port you need to know how to login to your
router as administrator and the port number of your server.
On a Linksys WRT router this is under "Applications and Gaming".
http://portforward.com/

2.  If your ISP give an IP-address that changes - dynamic IP-address -
you can use http://dyndns.org or http://no-ip.com or other services
to sort this out.  Access your computer by domain name - not IP-address.
