Also make sure that you have no NAT or connection-tracking firewall
between your server and the internet.

(NAT would actually be acceptable when it is a statically configured
one-to-one address translation, not one that ends up building a session
table like a connection-tracking firewall does)

Really, it will break your router or firewall when you try to go live
without make sure this is OK.
