No, you will need to instruct your router that incoming requests that
you expect to arrive at your glassfish server (presumably those on
port 80) need to go to the host running glassfish. Exactly how you do
this varies from router to router, but the configuration is known as
'port forwarding' - you forward traffic hitting a particular port on
your router to a particular (and perhaps different) port on a host
behind it.
