Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

everything is working great on my local host. but other people can't connect to the external IP (got Ip from Ipchicken.com)
I forwarded my ports on my router (20,21,80,443,50000-50100), and added the computer to the DMZ list (just for testing if that would made any difference, but it didn't.)
but this link keep saying they're closed (http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/)
tested with 2 routers having same problem for both, different setup of linux though.
now using D-link DIR-300
Okay, so, how about dyndns instead? I suspect you're running some sort of Internet server here. Cool! The IP address is tricky as it renews/changes all the time. However, dyndns allows you to stay accessible even using an dynamic IP address. Check out their services!
If ports 80 or 8080 are not blocked, all you need to do is set up a page called "index.htm" or something like that (see the settings in the server) and your visitors will see that page first...
But, 1 to 1023 seems to be blocked, so there's no option here. So, I assume dyndns to be an option. Set up a domain, delegate that to your IP : port and (possibly) presto! Look into the wizard they have...

he said "Yep they block the following ports: 0 -> 1023, ..." so its likely 80 is not getting through.
for OP, what "router" are you talking about? and what do you mean by "forwarded ports"? you also say "auto connect" for clients, the only way they will "auto connect" is if, as example, they save a url shortcut with fqdn[:]port in it.

I know that it's for security reasons but I mailed them asking if they would open it, probably not gonna work, but it's definitely worth the shot ;P
And for an dynds, I don't want to spend any money on this one, it's just for fun. or perhaps i saw the site wrong and it's an free service.
@Linux Kidd, as I said in first post it's an D-link DIR-300, and by forwarding I mean, I got to the page port forwarding, and add the ports, is there any other way then?
Seconding that, repo. However, a fixed IP address (with ALL the extra's that come with it) comes with a bill. Be warmed.
Depends on the ISP. TimeWarner in Texas only charges $5/mo for a static IP with their basic consumer internet package.
Comcast, on the other hand, won't give you a static IP unless you upgrade to their business class account, which is double the price...
