You mean being blocked by the router?  I don't think I'm using any firewall,
at least any firewall that didn't come pre-installed. 
 I'm using the same port-forwarding technique (in the router setup) that I
use for Port 80 for my site, so why would 80 work, but not 8888? I COULD
just change the port from 8888 to something else, if it would make it
For example, I've done SSHing without having to change stuff like this (but
not on port 8888, of course).

Sorry for being so inept at using iptables... So far I've managed to avoid
every using them. 

I tried 
"iptables -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 8888 -j ACCEPT"
and got: 
"iptables v1.3.8: no command specified
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information."

Do you know what the correct command should be?  And possibly any succinct
iptable guides for newbies?
