Most basic routers have an option to forward all connections from the WAN
side to a local IP. Yours will too. Advanced routers can forward selected

Be warned that your desktop may not be configured securely for exposure to
the Internet. If you use Samba to share files on the LAN, for instance, you
will find your shared folders regularly littered with virus droppings -- if
your files haven't been copied or deleted, that is.
