What would be thebest way to configure a pix 501 to work with a cable modem the ISP provides a heartbeat and authentication service that periodically checks in from PC this is similar to the roadrunner service that run on some cable NW in the states from what i gather the app authenticates to ISP on port 50xxx
If i set the outside interface to Dhcp as no static ip's available and inside to 10.1.1.1 net will I be able to do a static
nat from internal host 10.1.1.25 to outside int or would pat be a better option suggestion appreciated.

I doubt the pix will work in such a configuration - it supports PPPoE, and that is it. There is no support for any proprietary authentication method. If the auth software can be run on an internal pc however, there may be hope - you need to do PAT as you will likely only have one IP address, but you could statically forward the port to an internal machine :
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
