Agreed, it looks like and :9030 are not open.

Do you have the right IP address? Are you sure you set up port
forwarding correctly? Do you have some extra firewall in the way?

I checked on my directory authority, and nothing has published from
that address lately. So your relay has not found itself reachable --
you might find it useful to look in its logs, which should tell you that
it didn't find itself reachable, and who knows, might tell you something
else useful too. :)

Good luck!
