Accessing a computer behind NAT

Here is my network configuration: My computer with two NICs, on one NIC I have the address on the other NIC I have the IP Behind the last NIC I have other 3 computers, and my computer does a SNAT for them in order for them to access the internet. My computer is in another network

Is there a posibility for someone from the network to access the stations with the IPs 192.168.x.x ? (with a static route or something...)

Not unless you tell the NAT box to forward a port to any of them. Or they initiate the connection first.

If you want to do this it is possible but by definition the outside computers will only see the NAT box... and can't get past it without it being told to let it through.
