IPTables port forward help


I am using Mandriva and have set up a basic firewall through iptables and everything is working fine at the moment.

My firewall machine is basically configured as follows

eth0: Public IP
eth1: (setver acts as DHCP server)

My iptables are just used for masquerade, closing ports etc and i have yet to set up port forwarding.

I have setup Windows Terminal services on the internal address and need to allow access to it (Port 3389) from a remote office. If the remote office was IP what should i add to my iptables.

I currently dont have a test machine where i can test out adding rules and am slow to try it myself as it is a live system.

Many thanks for any help.
