SharePoint and port number mapping

I have set up SharePoint and we have set up a site at http://server2:678

We have a domain registered as office.domain.org and I have done port forwarding on the firewall to point that port to the server and from the internet. I can get to http://office.domain.org:678.
I want to set it up so that all we need to do is to type in http://office.domain.org and get to the site but I am not sure how to do that.

What do I need to do in SharePoint to make this happen? Do I still need to keep the port forwarding on?
Also, we would like to use SSL so it would be https://office.domain.org so I will need to be able to change that also.

Hi, I've been able to get back to this.
First two links don't really help because I am trying to remap those port numbers and I really don't see the second link talk about port numbers other than ports 443 and 80 which are common.
The third link talks about reverse proxy and I am not familiar with that and since this is just a single SBS 2008 server, I'm not sure I need to worry about this??
When I go into my Alternate Access Mappings, it shows the following;

https://sites:987  Default  https://sites:987
http://companyweb  Intranet http://companyweb 
https://server2:41622  Default https://server2:41622 
http://server2:678  Default http://server2:678

 
I am still having problems with the alternate maping. We still cannot get it working. The links that are provided don't quite tell us the whole picture.
