Connecting to Host PC

OK I'll be quick with the question and scream for help.
I can connect to my Mac Host just find when I am on the same network via 192..... ip address.
My problem is when I am at work and try to connect to my mac from there using my real IP I get an error.

I have port forwarding turned on for port 5000.
I do not have proxy enabled
I everything is updated.

what is the magic trick to getting this thing to work from an external IP address.

I know it isn't due to hardware or software versions considering it works fine on the same network. Only happens when I try with my real IP and the port.

Does this even work with starter?
How am I supposed to test it if not (not dropping $2k a year on a big unknown)

The error message is useless and provides no help what so ever.
I was planning on buying a Business license but considering this doesn't work outside of the network it makes it useless considering I can just use my mac if I am at home
