router blocking access to services

i have a router and my pc is behind the router.
now i have enabled services on my computer like ssh, vnc, http etc. and i want the computers outside my router to access those services.
but when i attempt to do this the router says no service available, my router has NAT enabled.
i have tried following things bringing down the router firewall, opening specifice ports in the router and forwarding requests on those ports to my computer, but nothing worked for me.
now if anybody can help me please let me know how do i do this.
it will be very helpful
note that i use RHEL 4 with firewall down.

i got this ,
and the apply changes button doesn't work in firefox but it works fine in IE and
opera, so i created the servers and directed the router traffic to my computer.

now i have one question :
how do i monitor my router's traffic from my linux box,
see my situtation is:
belkin router from which my box, and two other boxes are connected.
now gateway for the other two boxes is the belkin and for mine also it's the same.
i have a belkin router.

Router issues

This sounds like an issue with your router not Linux. You may get farther looking on the Belkin site for a manula for your particular router. I don't use Belkin, I have a LinkSys. On that router there is what they call port forwarding that needs to be set up for each protocol you want to let into your network. You specify the port you want to forward and an address inside your network you want to send it to. I am assuming you do in fact have your iptables shut off. That would have to be either shut off or better yet configured to accept the service requests you want to support. As root issue a '/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop' to make sure the firewall is shut down. The other thing of course is making sure the servers for those services are in fact running. SSHD should be turned on by default. The other services you mentioned will have to be explicitly turned on. Hope this helps some.
