582n and port forwarding

Hi,
Hopefully I'm missing something obvious here...
I used to have adsl with a speedtouch 585. I had port 80 forwarded to a web server on my network - it all worked externally. I've previously had mail and ftp forwarded as well, so I thought I knew what I was doing Smiley
I'm now on fibre with a technicolor 582n. The port forwarding UI looks exactly the same ("game and app sharing"). I've got port 80 forwarded to the same machine yet it doesn't work externally.
I may well have turned the firewall off on the 585 but I don't really want to have to do that now. I only want to forward the one port to the webserver.
Any guesses as to what I've not done?
Thanks,
Ric

These 582's are notorious for NOT forwarding the ports you ask for. If you search on here you will find MANY people with the same issues.
