Accessing an application through the Internet

I installed Oracle Application Server 11.5.9 on Linux AS 3.0 and can manage to access to it through a LAN. I'm now trying to access the Oracle application through the Internet by opening a port 8000 from our router, which points to my Oracle server's IP address, but it failed.

I installed Oracle Application Server 11.5.9 on Linux AS 3.0 and can manage to access to it through a LAN by using this address: http://oracle-svr.gsmsc.com:8000/dev60cgi/f60cgi.

I'm now trying to access the Oracle application through the Internet by opening a port 8000 from our router, which...

points to my Oracle server's IP address, and then trying to access by using this address (http://[our static IP]:8000/dev60cgi/f60cgi), but it failed.

Is there any setting I messed up or that is not the correct way? Thanks.

You appear to be doing it correctly but without an error message I am not sure what to advise. Forward port 8000 through the firewall to the port on the Linux server. Then access the application by requesting http://firewall_ip:8000/dev60cgi/f60cgi. If the application tries to connect using another port, the initial connection would work, but the connection on the separate port would fail.
