I am trying to set up relay peer because i have peer sitting behind firewall.
I know that in order to set up a relay peer it can't be behind firewall.
I am using a router from my Internet service provider. Would the router automatically configure firewall so when i post my relay peer it is still inside router's firewall but outside of computer's firewall.

I don't quite get the concept here.

Thanks in advance

Your relay peer needs to have a public IP address so that peers on the WAN can access it AND your router must be configured to let http traffic in and out to that public IP address AND your firewall should not block the port used by your relay peer to get/send HTTP communication.

Hope this helps,
