Rereading your first post, I am trying to figure out how you have your network setup. I'm thinking that you have your windows machine on the wan side of the router, and the linux box in on the lan side. If this is true, you need to forward port 504 on the router to the linux box and connect to the router's wan IP from the windows machine.
