Port forwarding Command????

Does anyone know the command to forward requests on port 3389 to a specific internal host? I need to access a server via remote desktop over the Internet. I want to enter the public IP (outside interface) and have my Cisco ASA 5505 forward that port request to a server on my LAN.


Re: Port forwarding Command????

you would require a static NAT for the host u wish to access from the internet and a corresponding access-list on the outside interface.

eg.. your server has a private ip of and the natted public IP is

static (inside,outside) netmask 0 0

access-list acl_in permit tcp any host eq 3389

access-group acl_in in interface outside

HTH, rate if it does

Re: Port forwarding Command????

I entered these commands you recommended into the CLI, but I am still unable to connect to the internal server with Remote Desktop (from an external address). I have posted my ASA's running config here. Let me know what you think.
