You can do this 2 ways:  (I don't know the Speedtouch Interface, so this is theory)

1.  On the router, configure your server to be the DMZ system via its IP address in the Speedtouch interface.  Make sure you give your server a Static IP address.  (If you are running this server off your playing system, this is quite a security risk)

2.  You will need to have certain ports open on your router.  You use port forwarding to do this, forwarding the ports to the IP address of your server.  (Again, I recommend you use a static IP address for your server).  At the bare minimum you need ports 5425, 15425 and 28900 open. Here is a list of other ones you might like to open:

3783 (Voice Chat Port for LAN use)
27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
28900 (Master Server List Request)
29900 (GP Connection Manager)
29901 (GP Search Manager)
13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
15425 (Vietcong Server)
6515 (Dplay UDP)
6500 (Query Port)
5425 (Default VC port)
