I have a teamsite which I want to expose to internet for my team managers to see. I have External IP and Port which my IT manager has mapped it to my machines IP. Now I have the site on my machine.

I think you have to configure the router / modem for the port forwarding and then map, because for example if you are inside the same network, your manager can connect by ip:port of your computer to sharepoint – Shkipper Nov 21 '12 at 12:23

Define Alternate Access Mappings from Central Admin for your teamsite

Open Central Administration -> Application Management -> Configure Alternate Access Mappings -> Add Internal URLs [Select Internet in Zone and make sure to select Web Application]

I have added external ip with port number in IIS bindings and in Alternate access mappings but after that although I can access my site externally but the links on the site for example the "Add new Item" link button is not working. And when I am checking where its pointing to, it shows me only external ip address and not the port number – RHM Nov 21 '12 at 12:41
ok.. so you mean that I should add the external ip to AAM and not in IIS bindings – RHM Nov 21 '12 at 12:54
Im typing then it shows me the site page externally but the links on the site have only not the port number ? – RHM Nov 21 '12 at 12:57
