If you want to access your PIX from the outside use SSH, to configure SSH access on the PIX do (in config mode):
ca generate rsa key 1024
ca save all
To view your SSH key issue: show ca mypubkey rsa
In your PIX config youll need to allow the appropriate IP addresses that are allowed to connect to the PIX via SSH, you can do two things here, either allow any source IP address or you can tie it down to a specific IP address i.e.
(in config mode)
ssh 0 0 outside
The above will allow anyone to SSH onto your PIX (as long they know your PIX public IP address); make sure that your passwords are STRONG.
You can also tie it down so that only specific public IP addresses are allowed to SSH onto your PIX i.e.
ssh 255.255.255.255 outside
You can download free SSH client i.e. putty.exe just do a search on Google for it!
Remember the SSH login is - pix - and then use your PIX password's to log onto your device.
