When my PC connects, it downloads the status page from my
router, gets the router's external IP, and uploads that to a
site. If I ssh out to a shell provider, I can access connect
to that site, and connect to the apache2 or ssh servers running
on my machine since ports are forwarded to my machine. If I try
to connect directly, I get "ERROR: unable to connect to remote
host," I have to use localhost or 127.0.0.1 to connect directly.
I'm hoping to remedy this, as I don't see why I shouldn't be able
to connect to my router's external IP, but routing isn't my strong
suit, and I'm at a loss.
