I have a static IP address outside the firewall ( let say, IP is and the firewall doing the DHCP (firewall Ip is, say My FTP server IP is, say What is the correct codes I have to input into the firewall ver 6.1 management software in order to get the redirection to work?

Re: PIX 501 and Port Redirection

you would have to create a static mapping from the external IP to internal ip.

Static (inside,outside) netmask

If this is your only external IP, you will have to configure a static PAT mapping.

static (inside,outside) eq 21 eq 21 netmask

You would also have to open up the ports on you ACL also.

Thanks. Do I have to reconfigure the global outside address too?

My current setting is global (outside) 1 interface, should I configure to global (outside) 1

I would leave the global statement alone. It should work fine using the outside interface IP.
