Well, that barely even lasted one month. Now that host is TCP & UDP firewalled again. Good luck with that.
I'm guessing they forgot to set up a static internal address so their internal 192. or 10. address did not change between reboots. If it changes then the port forward rule would not work because it was set under a different address. (eg: 10.1.1.3 instead of 10.1.1.2) . .
