First, when starting a new question/thread, don't 'reply'.  Instead,
start a new message (you are buried in the thread you replied to).

Third, the short answer is yes :)

You don't tell us a lot, but we can guess that the router performs
network address translation.  In that case, you need to set rules on the
router to forward port 80 requests to the proper machine on the LAN.
You'll need to RTFM on your router.

Do you have a registered domain name?  A fixed IP addy?  Using a dynamic
dns?  In other words, how does anyone reach you?
