Actually on further inspection, im wrong.... If i connect to then 
the shows up, but if i connect to geiseri.myip.org then the WAN 
address shows up in the http logs...  Since when a client from the WAN 
connects the correct address appears in the logs, that is starting to make me 
belive there is a bug in their software....  Could this be the case?
