7) Next is to setup your router port forwarding, changes is most often related to firewall port forwarding settings in router.
Basically what needs to happen is when a incoming connection is made from the internet your router will check the port number requested and then with with the firewall rules setup it then will forward the incoming connection to the IP150's IP selected.
With all the available routers on the market you will need to check your manual for the router to set this up
