Pix 506E Single network RDP


I'm trying to configure a Pix 506E for a single network to allow RDP to the server. The Pix outside interface is a public IP that conects to a router managed by AT&T. The Ip address is 12.146.x.x. The inside interface is set to To allow for RDP traffic in to the server only, I know that a static nat has to be set up, but I've tried the static (inside,outside)etc, but can't get it to work. here is the config (I'm reaaly NEW at this):

Re: Pix 506E Single network RDP

Right ... basically you need the below instructions

1.- static (inside,outside) tcp 3389

3389 netmask

2.- you need to create an access-list that allows incoming traffic from teh Internet to the Public address specified the point 1

access-list 100 permit tcp any host eq 3389

3.- You need to apply teh access list 100 to teh outside interface

access-group 100 in interface outside

This will allow access from any host in the internet to the internal device using RDP ( port TCP 3389 )
