Hi all.

I need a help in making an internal website available for external users. I have a PIX 502 firewall that has a static public IP.

My internal Webserver has a private ip.

the website can be accessed internal by : http://server_ip:8080/zak/index.php

You can configure port forwarding on the external IP address to redirect to the internal IP address using the same TCP port, something like:-

access-list acl-outside permit tcp any host <> eq www

static (outside,inside) tcp <> 8080 <> www netmask 0 0

Once the TCP connection has been made through the firewall to the internal IP address, and being redirected to the specific TCP port, the 501 will not look at any other layer 5 to layer 7 content within the HTTP connection.
