I am running Fedora 2 Linux on my machine and just got myself an ADSL connection. I downloaded and installed gnump3d in my machine and everything works fine if I access it as http://localhost:8888 from my machine.

OK, so gnump3d is configured properly to listen to port 8888.

However, I want to serve up music on the web. I have a local firewall as well as a firewall on my router. I set up my router to open port 8888 in its firewall, as well as to do NAT for my PC. When I probed it using an external portscanner like, I found that port 8888 was open. However, it refused a connection when I typed in my router IP address (accessible to the world):8888. When I shut down gnump3d, the port 8888 appeared "closed" on the external scanner, so it appears that it is doing something. What do I need to enable in my gnump3d.conf file to get it to work outside?

As you've already determined above, gnump3d is working OK, so there's nothing you need to do to your gnump3d.conf file. You probly just need to open a hole in the FC2 firewall so that external requests to port 8888 are processed.

As root (or su'd), run 'system-config-securitylevel' from a terminal and add the custom port/protocol of 8000:tcp.

I've already set my hostname=hostname of my router on the www, but it still doesn't work. Do I also need to set the binding_address? Everything else is set to default values.

Thanks for any assistance, (I'm a newbie at all this).
