Stateful filtering

I have a system that we have to install for the police department called LOCATER. This is something similar to the "Amber Alert" system now in use in many states. They are requiring that that ports 25, 80, 110, 389 be open to address If I have the LOCATER workstation on the inside of the pix, will stateful filtering take care of this or do I have to do something different.

Do I have to do anything different to allow LDAP and POP3 traffic through?

Re: Stateful filtering

Will the LOCATER system be accessed on the ports listsed above from that address (inbound)? Or does the LOCATER system need access to the IP address given on those ports (outbound)?

If inbound, the outside access-list will need to allow that IP address to access those ports. Also, you'll need a [static] statement to make it permanently available.

If outbound, nat/global or static statements will provide the access necessary unless you have an access-list on the inside interface preventing this traffic from going out.
