Unreal needs no special settings to be the target of port forwarding. You run it on a non-routable IP that can be seen by your router. Usually something like You then forward the ports in your routers config to point to the IP of the machine you are running Unreal on.

Secondly there is no special command to connect to your Unreal locally. /server or /server or whatever non-routable ip you have.
