As far as the outside world is concerned you are forwarding to your external IP. It is the router's job to make that translation. You have a single external IP (most likely), all computers on your internal network will share that connection/IP. The port forward is designed to route packets coming from the outside to a specific computer inside your network. So if you setup the port-forward in your router to your internal IP people accessing the external IP should still be routed to your pc. If this is not happening there is probably a software firewall interaction blocking the transmission.
