I have a server in my office and I wonder how I can access from the Internet. I wish to enter that server to perform remote configurations do. I have a SSG140.
Thank you very much

Your most secure option for this would be to setup remote access to your LAN then connect to the server on this. The feature is called Dynamic VPN.
This is the kb that outlines the various configuration options.
These reference the netscreen client but this will not support Win7. If you have win7 clients you will need to choose either the officially supported but paid NCP client. See this thread
And the kb
Or the Shrew open source client.
Your other option is to configure Remote Access on your server. Assuming this is windows these are the relevant sections for the server and firewall changes.
Windows 2003 RAS
To use the windows server method these are the instructions.

Troubleshooting RAS connections
On the firewall you then allow this traffic forwarded from you public ip address
