Basically:

1. Set a static IP address for your computer.
2. Configure the router to forward the necessary ports to that IP address.
3. Open those ports in your firewall to that traffic.

There should be instructions about the ports at the program's website.
You'll need to refer to your router's manual for how to do port
forwarding with it.
