Main goal: get Debian/Ubuntu to get an IP address from your router, likely 192.168.0.xxx. Then in your router, either put that into DMZ or port forward the necessary ports to it. Personally I wouldn't open up SSH on the common ports. Use something unique to prevent script kiddies from hammering it.
thanks, this is the answer i was looking for, ill try this out tomorrow when i get home, thats what i figured what was happening since it was a completely different subnet. I am planning on changing the port, i just want to get it working first.
