OK, I understand now.  If your box does not have a real IP address,
theres no way (hopefully) to get to it from the outside.  Howevery, you
can set up your firewall to forward packets on certain ports to a port
on another machine.  it's called IP port forwarding.

See the man page for iptables, or ipchains, or ipfwadm, whichever you
are using.
