I have an apache webserver which is in managed office building. I don't know much about how the network is setup and I was wondering if there is a way I could access a intranet website on the webserver from outside the the office building? The office has a static IP.

Yes, there will most likely be a way, but since we know even less about the network, we can't tell you how. – Sven Mar 19 '12 at 9:41

Teamviewer or similar software would allow you access into the internal network from outside.

If you setup a VPN or a tunnel on/to the webserver, then you might be able to do this. But only if the firewall rules allow you to.
