Well, these are all words that I wish I knew, but I don't.  I'm slowly 
learning though.

I am running apache, and the admin has opened port 80, so my web pages are 
viewable off site.  Also, from other computers that are also behind the 
firewall, I can hit my box.  So, I assume if the right port was open, I 
would be able to ssh into my box from off site.

Any explainations would be appreciated.
