try a third party tool, www.gotomypc.com or www.logmein.com

the second one is free for a basic account.

Good Luck,

On router I am sure you must have a configuration page which can forward the port 80 to your specific terminal.  On that page you can put in the static IP address of the terminal to whom you want the port 80 to be forwarded.
