    I'm not sure what you mean by not having an external ip.
    Post what you get from: /sbin/ifconfig

    How often does your provider make you change ip's?

    ventricle: my IP on eth0 is only accessible from inside the LAN (they said we're not fwalled, but I guess they were wrong)

    ifconfig gives me one address (10.*.*.*), but then anything else (i.e. IRC servers, http://www.whatismyip.com) gives a different one (66.*.*.*).

    Neither of these are accessible from outside the LAN, though only the ifconfig is accessible from inside. So I'm guessing that the gateway/router's externel IP is that one.

    My lease time is 86400 and my renewel time is 43200 (as per /etc/dhcpc/dchpcd-eth0.info)

    That's exactly the type of thing that I need...Now all I need to find is a machine to serve as the frontend.

    wouldnt you be able to ssh to the ip that your router has and then redirect the ssh(port) to the ip with in the lan. i dont see why that wouldnt work
    i dont know what port ssh uses so i cant help on that but i would think that would work jst find wouldnt it.

    SSH is port 22/TCP

    It would not appear to be a firewall on your host, but a router performing NAT.

    A lot of router's all you to setup "port-forwarding", which means incoming requests to a particular port on the external interface of the router are routed to an internal IP address and port.
