PIX 6 port forwarding

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2007


I need to publish on internet my webmail server but I don't have any public IP address available.

My outside interface is assigned to a public ip address.

Is it possible to configure a port forwarding so that the request on a particular port on the outside address of the pix are forwarded to an internal address to a specific port?

Thank you for your support.


I have this problem too.

Keep in mind that port forwarding is the same

between version 6.x and 7.x

Now I need to configure the


The source address should be any but the destination should be the webserver on port 443 or the outside interface on port 4100?
