Suggestions Needed - Connecting external website to interal SQL server

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Our website is hosted by a third party company using Linux and Apache.  Internally, we have SQL Server 2008.  I want to be able to provide our clients access to their data from our website.  I don't want to have to export data from SQL to mySQL, as that would be a constant process to make sure the data was up to date.  Currently, our SQL server does not have an external IP address.

I just need some ideas of how to make this happen.
