Have you tried to check if the port was really open?
Try using a port scanner from the internet to your setup. There are a lot of port scanners online available for your disposal.
If the from the internet, the port is blocked then you should start troubleshooting ISO style. PDNTSPA style....
Things you can do...
Run netstat -ano on the Server to check if the port is even on listening state.
Set the the machine on DMZ state on the linksys router.
If all else fails work from scratch. Connect the server to the Qwest modem. And check if the ports are working.
Your setup has two NAT systems, your Qwest modem is a modem/router as well as the Linksys router. NAT behind a NAT is often times is not that good.
