Bidirectional NAT on PIX ver 6.3

Hi all,

I need to configure an inbound nat rule on a PIX firewall so that a network that comes in through a VPN on the outside interface translates to a dmz interface (PAT).

I have the configuration in place to setup all the translation rules without the bidirectional NAT rule in place and all is working, but when I had the bidirectional nat rules:

nat (outside) 10 outside

nat (outside) 0 0 0 outside

global (dmz) 10 interface

everything breaks, even another vpn that I have running on the inside interface.

I have searched for info on bidirectional nat but the documentation available is very slim and it doesn't clearly state exactly what changes when you use it.

Can anybody give some more insigth into this?
