Okay, so just to confirm -- on your LAN you use RFC1918 space which the
netgear gateway NATs for you, and the server in question sitting on your
LAN has no knowledge of the public IP address that geiseri.myip.org
resolves to?

Assuming what I wrote above is true, when you connect from the workstation
to the server's public IP address, what address does the server see the
workstation as coming from?  Are you sure you have any connectivity at all
-- are you able to ping the server's public address from your workstation?
