It sounds like your router may not support UPnP, which means you will have to configure port forwarding yourself.

Many thanks for the reply, unfortunately, my Router port forwarding page is nothing like the one in the video and I am at a complete loss on how to do it.

You'll have to check the user's manual for your router.
