i cant get my server to connect to internet


i have tried to make a games server, i have downloaded all the required files to start the game server, set it up and updated it from the Internet!!
The server is at my friends house, while there i can connect to it via ssh but when i come home and try to connect to it from here i cant.
The game side of the server is working but that wont show up on the Internet either!! can you help me by telling me how to make it show up on the net and how to allow me to connect to it via ssh from home?

thanks from the noob of the year

Your problem is probably a firewall problem. Can you ping the game server?

Please give more info...

What does the game server's LAN look like? Is there a DHCP server providing NAT? Is the game server directly connected to the internet? How many network cards are there in the game server?

I don't know about iptables since I use the hardware firewall in my router but google should help you here. Try googling for 'iptables howto' or something along those lines.

Mark.
