I install a lot of Linux systems as part of my business for large companies and up until now I had no answer when they have asked me about accessing a corporate web server BEHIND the firewall from the public Internet.

I would appreciate any comments on this. If Michael Hasenstein's NAT can let company's do this, it is an extremely important piece of work. Not everyone can afford $15,000 for a PIX Firewall.
