    I have a static ip broadband internet connection running into my router. For the LAN I have a Linux box (suse 9.2 pro) as my server, it has samba shares that can be seen and mapped to on the network. I want to know the best way to make it so if that static ip is hit from the web out side the building it connects to my server. Should there be a way to do this with my current configeration? Or do I need to take a different approach? Such as run the broadband straight into the Linux box and have a second network card go out into the router to share the web with the other PCs in the office?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I'm not quite sure what it is that you want to do with the Linux box but port forwarding on the router would take external accesses through to the Linux box if you configure it appropriately.
