Running my game server on my inside network, not being seen on internet (Cisco 2600)

I am running a game server on my internal lan, this is working correctly and works on the internet if I plug my PC in directly. I think the problem is due to NAT running on my cisco 2600 (config below). Because when I use my router, it isn't being seen on the list of internet servers as it should. What do I need to add to my config to allow it to be seen on the net.

The port my game uses is 14567 and the local IP is: 192.168.137.2
The IP address that my router picks up is 80.0.159.27

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
James

Jbartosik,

What you are doing with above config actually is called PAT instead of NAT. To perform the NAT operation port redirection, use the following command on your router besides the config you allready have :

ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.137.2 14567 80.0.159.27 14567 extendable

This should forward comming in on port 14567 on your ISP IP to your internal server.

grtz

Todos, thanks for your help, but it didn't work, I'm still not seeing my server being broadcast. Any other ideas?

Thanks
James
