HTTPS, HTTP, SSH on Fedora Core 5, Linksys WRT54G router, can see page on LAN

I really need some help. I have two boxes connected to my router. One is a windows XP box, and the other is a fedora core 5 box. My router is Linksys Wireless G wrt54G. I need to be able to access the webpage from outside my own LAN. I can see that the website is being hosted (the test page in fedora comes up). I have registered with and my address for that is I have also tried to portforward ports 80 and 22 for http and ssh. I can access both (to my linux box) from my windows box. However I cannot see anything from outside my own lan.

the ip address of my router is
the ip address of my linux box is (static)
the ip address of my windows box is dynamically set

my service provider is bell sympatico.

You would need to know that your ISP isn't blocking these ports in the inbound direction - some do.
You would also need to know that your port forwarding is working in your router - are you forwarding these ports to the IP address of the linux box? Sorry I'm not familiar with how this is done with the Linksys routers.
You would also need to set up either your router or the linux box to say hello to DynDNS periodically to refresh your dynamic IP.

You should get your current ISP-assigned dynamic IP from either inside or outside your lan if you
(same command in Win/MSDOS or linux shell)
Is this working?
This should be the same IP as DynDNS reports when you log in to their site.

seems to be that u need to enable port forwarding on your router, thats what they call it in netgear and is called PAT(port address translation in CISCO)

your router would be having another ip address other than which would be on the wan interface or so called internet port.

and u will need to register that ip address with as that is the ip address which the outside world can access not the 192.168 address(which is used for private networks)

What kind of service provider is bell sympatico i mean cable, DSL or ADSL.

call Linksys support they will help u with port forwarding.
