Both are interesting ideas, but I don't know if they'd work in my
situation.  My problem is that packets sent from somewhere out on the
Internet that are destined for port 80 on my ip address are filtered out
by my service provider.  My machine itself is perfectly happy accepting
packets on port 80; the problem seems to be that the extended LAN I'm
hooked to intentionally drops these incoming packets.  The solution
would be to address the incoming packets to a different port before they
arrive at the network I'm connected to ... but how?  It seems this would
require my having another ip address out there somewhere acting as a
proxy of sorts.
