If you do you should search the logs in /var/logs to see if there are any messages that might help indicate why it went offline. Attaching the portion of syslog which I think caused the pro...

You can follow http://raspisimon.no-ip.org/ipaddress.php To enable port forwarding login to your router (usually http://192.168.1.1 ) and go to Port Forwarding menu.
