Default Others can't connect to my private server

I can connect to my private ninjam server using as host name: "mycomputername:2049" that is off course the client and server are in the same network. I have my brother from a different state connect to my private server using "myipaddress:2049". I'm sure he got my correct ipaddress. I used a wireless router for my internet. Next time I will try to disconnect the router for testing if that is what is causing the problem. But if it doesn't work? what else is a possible solution so others can connect to my server.
Thank you for your help ...in advanced ....

I bought the reaper because of ninjam and was able to figure out the basics, enough to record my own songs (recorded my own drums, bass, rythm guitar, lead guitar and vocals) I'm sooooo happy with it. I play music instruments by ear (I dont use electronic tunner either just my ear)just self thought so I cannot write the song in music sheets so I record them. I looooooove reaper. The recording quality is sooo crispy even in mp3. Just plug my instruments raw to the audio interface (no amplifier). Then I played my song using my bose speaker. The recorded sound quality is spectacular compared to any of the CD music that I bought from the stores or download from Itune. I can hear every detailed sound that comes out of the instruments it is so natural. Kudos to the creator of reaper. The functions built into that software is soooooo comprehensive. It is definitely worth what I paid for ...... anyway back to topic...

The only thing missing is to get others to connect to my ninjam server. I need help!!! please.........

Default

You need to enable "Port Forwarding" in your router and specify:

- The Ninjam port number (default is 2049)
- The ip of the computer running Reaper/Ninjam

And I hope you have given your brother your EXTERNAL ip. Internal ip's usually are 192.168.X.X or 10.X.X.X.

thank you soooo much for the input. I did initially got my IP using a google search for "what's my ip address" and it started with "69.244.xxx.xxx. Is there a way to do a test once i figure out how to configure my router without having my brother try to connect?

because it takes weeks to just convince him to download ninjam then I had to be on skype with him sharing desktop and he gets frustrated easy. then he lose interest if it doesnt work the first time. he is very basic with computer but a great lead guitarist. he's been in the cover band for 25 years and played all over the world. he also played by ear. Im just average in playing instruments but my passion is composing and recording my original songs. I compose and record new songs every week. so collaborating with my brother and others eventually at ninjam would be so wonderful. I'm exited ........

problem solved. you are right about looking into configuring the router. I google the how to but cant access my router not remembering my user authentication so cannot forward the port. Instead i unplug my wireless router since it was causing problem with my server connection and directly connected to my comcast internet modem. my brothers from Cali was able to connect to my server in michigan it is such a neat technology.
