Question direct connection through the firewall

I have set up a firewall using the Masquerade Howto with the Stronger Firewall rule set.
And this works fine.

I now have a need to connect to a server through the firewall and don't seen to be able to do it


Here is the ASCI art

Workstations | Firewall | server ADSL router | | serves DHCP | to my |3 other workstations | segment | | DHCP to ADSL|

Yes the ADSL doesn't have a firewall of any kind. I share a connection with somewone else who isn't a big believer in firewalls so doesn't use one.

My problem is forming a connection to while staying safe.
I have tried these, at the file wall logged in as SU
# iptables -t nat -A INPUT -s -j ACCEPT

# iptables -s

Neither of which worked, still unable to ping the server?

Any suggestions, all the how to's seem to deal with hardening the Firewall and I want to soften it is suppose.


PS I have read Rusty Russels how to on IPtables but dont seem to be able to get what I want to work?
