Can't Connect To Machines Behind Routers

I'm having some trouble connecting to various machines that aer behind
routers. I've already completed the steps needed for Port Forwarding and
the firewalls are set also. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If I have
both the WAN IP and the LAN IP, in which order or format should they be?

Aiehgh. I've been Linuxed again.

Yeah, kinda. xmodmap -e 'keycode 64 = Meta_L' allows me to use one key as
the Meta key -- only, it's the wrong key. I unassigned both Alt_L and
Meta_L, and running xev the X server will reassign keys 252 and 253 to
Meta_L and Alt_L. Oddly, even if I switch them, well, I can NEVER make the
Meta key be the Meta key (the keycap on the key the X server wants to call
the meta key has the word 'alt' on it. . . Sigh.
Anyway, yes, un-assigning Alt_L from the key resolves the issue.
Thanks for the help!
