ERROR: unable to connect to remote host, from remote host

    When my PC connects, it downloads the status page from my
    router, gets the router's external IP, and uploads that to a
    site. If I ssh out to a shell provider, I can access connect
    to that site, and connect to the apache2 or ssh servers running
    on my machine since ports are forwarded to my machine. If I try
    to connect directly, I get "ERROR: unable to connect to remote
    host," I have to use localhost or to connect directly.

    I'm hoping to remedy this, as I don't see why I shouldn't be able
    to connect to my router's external IP, but routing isn't my strong
    suit, and I'm at a loss.
