Re: portfw into the inside network

Per RFC 1918 all the numbers you have listed are all reserved for
private internets and are not to be resolved externally. At some
point you have to have a real address/device from which you can
do port forwarding

External IP/device< -- firwall--dev/192.168.X <---> Internal Network
(eg 205.238.X.X) My external device is ppp0.
If your ISP gave you 192.168.2.2 as your outside address then they
are doing NAT on that number upstream from you.
