Sounds like they may call it PAT (port address translation) - look for pages on PAT or NAT (network address translation).  If you don't find it in the web config, try running the config programs that came with your router.

Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1, then press enter.  Enter your username and password (if still default, I believe these are "admin" and leave the password field blank).  Now, browse around until you find a page that says something about port forwarding.  You should be able to enter a source and destination port number, and a destination IP address, which will be that of your computer.

It is called virtual server

check this
http://support.3com.com/infodeli/tools/wireless/3crwe754/dua0075-4aaa01.pdf

from the document
 virtual server
This function will allow you to route external (Internet) calls for services
such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications
through your Router to your internal network. Since your internal
computers are protected by a firewall, machines from the Internet cannot
get to them because they cannot be 'seen'.
If you need to configure the Virtual Server function for a specific
application, you will need to contact the application vendor to find out
which port settings you need.
To manually enter settings:
1 Enter the IP address in the space provided for the internal machine.
2 Enter the port type (TCP, UDP, or both TCP and UDP).
3 Specify the Public port that will be seen by clients on the Internet, and the
LAN port which the traffic will be routed to.
4 You can enable or disable each Virtual Server entry by checking or
unchecking the appropriate Enable checkbox.
5 Click Apply to save the changes for each Virtual Server entry.
