Hopefully, you took time and also set proper firewall.

You can either:
- connect RasPi directly to a network cable coming from your internet provider or
- set port forwarding to the RasPi connected to internal network. This port forwarding must be set on a device (router) which is connected to a network cable coming from your internet provider.

You should try to figure out the issues properly and then ask uncle Google for a solutions - these are very basic tasks which you're doing here and more than enough articles already explain things well.
