Ahh in that case I assume the modem is the standard cable modem that
In that case you'll just need to setup forwarding on the router and
setup some sort of Dynamic DNS account. As I mentioned, DynDNS.org is a
good one and it's free. What you need to do is setup an account and
choose what you want your subdomain and domain to be. The subdomain bit
can be a word for instance which you will remember for instance javad
and the domain bit can be any of the pre-defined domains (homelinux.org,
isageek.org, homeunix.org, dyndns.org etc). So for instance if you
chose javad to be the subdomain name and isageek.org then your DynDNS
domain would be javad.isageek.org
Once you have chosen it you should then be able to configure your router
to tell DynDNS what the IP address is which Virgin will assign you (this
can change from time to time, not too sure how often it changes).
When it's configured you can than open the web browser on your phone and
browse to the DynDNS you chose and the port number for Tranmission such
as http://javad.isageek.org:9091 and you should get the transmission web
interface (assuming Transmission is running).
