Are you looking to let people in from outside, or just people on your network?
If you are looking to let people in from outside, then you would need to set up a dynDNS link and make some rules on your firewall to forward anything coming in to whatever port you set up TWGS on to go to the PC that is hosting it, usually port 23 or 2002, depending on what you chose.

If it is for local play, then you would just have to use your internal IP address and that port # on the other PCs.
