PIX 6 port forwarding


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.

static (inside,outside) tcp inteface 80 web_server_IP 80 netmask

of the webserver.

Keep in mind that port forwarding is the same
