Subject RE: cannot access pages except from my box

Or you could buy a cheap netgear or such firewall that
has port mapping built it. You assign it the IP address (Internet)
and configure it to remap to a certain IP address based
on port # (on the LAN side of the firewall)

It works great, and it's cheap and easy to setup
