If your not using port 80 or 443 then you need to specify the external port in the link like so:

and then nat that internally to port 80 or 443 as required.

I am having the same issue. I am unsure how to check which port I'm using, but as I assume those are defaults, I have done nothing to change it. How might I check which port I'm using to troubleshoot?
