here's the idea.
I have internet but no real IP. So i simply connect through gateway which of course HAS real IP (masquerading).
In short, i want to access my computer from outside (from any place).
Sure i know that direct connection is impossible so let's say i have another server with static IP. My idea is that i connect to that server and keep connection open and somehow i can connect to my computer through that connection using that server.
Sorry for clumsy sentences and so on, however i'm offering quite a bit : 500 points (can give even more)

If you could be more specific about your IP's, net masks, how you want to access, VPN, RAS, RDP...., whatever !

Best Regards !

you need to specify the nature of your internet connection in order for us to help you.

NAT router, cable modem? Which OS does your pc have. When you say 'access my computer' what do you mean? Do you want full remote acces or just access to files on the pc.

the more you can say the more we can help.

If I quite understood, you don't have a Public Static IP, but you can install a program that does that for you! You can try the Dyn-Dns page.

OK, more specific:
My computer 192.168.0.xxx goes through gateway 192.168.0.254 or whatever.
The gateway has public IP 82.135.146.xxx and my server public ip too 193.219.65.xxx
So as example of what i mean by saying 'access my computer' : that could be sshd for instance.
So basically, anywhere outside my LAN i want to connect to my 192.168.0.xxx sshd through some kind of connection <ANY COMPUTER ON INTERNET> -- <MY SERVER> -- <MY COMPUTER ON LAN>.

Actually, Kazaa will let you share files from PCs behind proxy servers / firewalls using hide NAT or PAT to other PCs doing the same, so I was being serious !  :)
So - this will give you filesharing.
...do you need some sort of console access as well (eg ssh) ?  If you need this, you will need to setup NAT on your Linux gateway, but as you don't have admin privieges you're pretty stuck.
