I seek to run a server on the 8000 port on my machine. My computer is part of a wireless home network which is connected to the Internet by a Linksys router. In this scenario, how would a host outside this network, somewhere in the Internet, connect to my service on port 8000 ? Because all the computers on my home network have the same ip address to a host outside. How would a request then resolve to my machine specifically?
