If you can access the configuration of the modem, you should be able to
port-forward to your box. That is, you can redirect specific ports on
the modem to specific machines on your LAN. For http, you'll want port
80 mapped to whatever machine you are hosting on. Usually, you point
your web-browser to the modem itself (probably 192.168.1.1) to get its
configuration interface.
