I have got a static ip address for lease from my ISP. So the requests for that ip address is forwarded to the modem in my house. from here it is connected to other devices through wifi. On one o the devices my server is running in jboss on port 8080. But all the devices have the same ip address. How can I forward the requests to that particular machine.

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.
Your internal network devices will not all have the same internal IP, otherwise they wouldn't work. What I assume you mean is that they all have the same external WAN ip.
In this case you will need to forward the port in your router settings to the IP of the device running your server.
WAN ip 188.8.131.52
So you'll want to forward all your port 8080 requests through to the 192.168.1.3 ip on your network.
