it's called "Extranet";

  1. Create A-record in your DNS for your domain name for what you want that points to your public IP address. We generally use team.companyname.com
  2. Set your firewall to port forward Port 80 to your internal server running SharePoint
  3. In Alternate Access Mappings under the SharePoint Central admin control panel change the site to the match the A-record you created.
    • Its under Application Management
    • Alernate Access Mappings, you can leave the type at Default.
  4. If there is anything you want secured I'd look at SSL and moving to port 443.
