✔ Best Answer
Go into the router's management interface and look through the settings for "Port Forward" This is where you'll open the port.

To create the forward you'll need to know 2 pieces of information.
1) The number of the port(s) you're going to forward
and
2) The LAN IP of the computer you'll be connecting to

The forward will look something like the following when configured:

Forward [Port #] to [IP Address of Target]
