    It looks like you need to be forwarding ports. However you need to know which ports to forward. You probably need to ask terragame for the specifics.

    First try and see if you can connect without the router. If you can't then start looking at your software firewall.

    If you can connect without the router plug it back up, go to the "advanced" menu on the router setup and set your computers IP address for "DMZ" that opens up the router's hardware firewall for your computer. If that works and you don't want to leave your computer wide open you do the port forwarding Vern mentioned. Port forwarding will also be under the "Advanced" router setup options.

    Post the router make and model and soemone using that brand can give you more detailed instructions.
