The phrasing of your question does not make this very important point clear: is the computer you're connecting from on the same LAN or not? If it is, it usually depends on the router to route traffic to your own public IP back to the appropriate local, internal IP address. – oKtosiTe Mar 26 '13 at 11:50
Did you set port forwarding up properly on your router? – oKtosiTe Mar 26 '13 at 11:51
