This article really caught my eye.
I have a cable modem.
I set up the account no sweat.
But non matter what I did, the connection was refused.
I read the comment on setting the port mapping etc. Here's what worked for me-- finally.


In my airport base station...
mapped port public 8081 10.0.1.201 to private port 80
copied down the dns server addresses shown
In NetInfo...
unlocked. selected machines. duplicated localhost.
changed the IP of the localhost copy to 10.0.1.201
In network settings...
selected airport card (no hardwire to server)
changed from DHCP to manual
set address to 10.0.1.201
set dns servers to address shown in base station
In sharing...
only allow web services for now, turned off the others until I know how to set.
At dyndns.org...
set up an regular dynamic account point to my base station ip
set up a webhop to point to dynamicaccount:8081


Finally, tried access from work and viola!
My guess is that comcast check ports ?
