how to let other LANs access internal LAN!!

Hi All!
My internal LAN (LAN1) is a part of big university's LAN. Our clients can access to computers on other LANs (i use MASQUERADE on my LINUX firewall/gateway to do this). But clients other LANs can't access to my LAN ( something that's not very fair). Would anyone help me to fix this problem.
Thank a lot
My linux FW/gateway: eth0 (ext LAN):
eth1( int. LAN):

one of other LAN on big inversity's LAN
eth0 (ext LAN):
eth1( int. LAN):

Check the settings in YOUR router. If YOUR router is setup to block outside requests, it is functioning properly and blocking outside requests. If the University's Router is blocking the requests, YOU need to speak with their admin/IT people about access. Otherwise YOU might be attempting unauthorized access.
