    I would assume you are talking about forwarding ports on a router. If so, what brand router is it?

    Trojans are bad. Period.

    To forward a port, go to you router's configuration interface (usually 192.168.1.1 in the browser or so). There should be a link called Port Forwarding or Virtual Server or something like that. Also look in your manual. It's there.
