Opening a Server to the Internet

I have the router that comes with Verizon's FiOS internet.
I'm wondering how to allow my server computer to be
accessed over the internet.

Right now, everything works flawlessly over my local
network, but when I connect to another internet
connection (at work, for example) I can no longer connect.

Basically, what I'm wondering is how to make the IP
address (?) public. I've heard stuff about 'IP Passthrough,'
but that option doesn't appear to exist on the Verizon-
supplied router.

I can't find anything on it on the internet. Anyone know
how this works?

Thanks in advance,
John Walsh

I use static IPs so the IP would work. You may have to use the name of the PC if you use DHCP.
