Dear MacRumours

We are a few guys wondering if a single Lion Server would make life easier for us with the wiki, iCal and filesharing stuff.

We all have 1 IP from our ISP, and a router at home (some of us AirPort Extreme) that lets the other computers in the respective homes connect by NAT.

Is there any way to have a Mac Mini behind a router providing access for remote users NOT on the home network?

The Mac Mini cannot be the NAT server (if there is even an option for that) as we cant guarantee its up-time, and other users behind the routers expect 24/7 access to the net.

Thank you for your time, I hope you can help

Yes. You have essentially described almost every single remote login scheme on the internet.
