If your router does not support Universal Plug 'n Play (UPnP), then you can manually port forward. You'll also need to forward the same port on your modem/router. Find your model on this list PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall. Listening Port & Manual Port Forward numbers should be the same!!!

Here's the LW 4 settings for Port Forwarding. If your router does not support Universal Plug 'n Play (UPnP), then you can manually port forward. You'll also need to forward a port on your modem/router. Find your model on this list PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall (NOTE!: This is now refered to as Manual Port Forward & NOT Force IP. A more appropriate name for the function!) Listening Port & Manual Port Forward numbers should be the same!!! See image below. (Windows equivalent image click here)
