Make my intranet available outside?

I have a intranet I've built for my company.  I'd like to be able to, through IIS I suppose make it available to the internet so my users don't have to vpn in to access it.  How is this done?  I'm very familiar with IIS so if anybody knows of any handy guide or standard procedures I'd greatly appreciate it.  It's not sharepoint fyi.

if this isn't sharepoint, why have you assigned the MS Sharepoint zone ?

to access your website from out side,

some one will have to typ


so it will serve the page from your server

but for that, you need to open port 80 from your firewall and have to forward all the request from port 80  to your IIS server
thats should done the job

it's in the sharepoint zone because the methods of making it available outside are similar.
