Have you got your Slackware system set up with a static IP address? As far as I know, most routers insist on that. You can also accomplish the same type of thing with Port Forwarding. That is considered to be safer, since you only open the port(s) you need. DMZ opens all ports.

How about a firewall on your system? Have you got the ports open you need for outside access?

Have you forwarded the port on the router?
In order to access a server from outside the network, you need to go to the router management console an tell it: "when a request comes to port X, I want you to forward that request to the machine with the ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, port xx". How exactly you do that, depends on the router. Search for 'Port Forwarding'

I doubt feedback or a solution will be coming from the OP.

We still could guess the solution. I suspect OP bought a brand new iPod and hasn't time to bother with the computer.
