Cisco 2600 and PCAnywhere 9 port mapping

Here's the deal...  I have an employee who needs access to her workstation from home.  We are using a Cisco 2621 router w/ IOS 12.0(7)T.  NAT is enabled using 172.16 scheme.  Need to know how to open a port on the router that will allow this employee, using PCAnywhere 9, to come in from the Internet on the router's external IP using the specified port and be routed to her workstation's IP, which is static.  I understand that PCAnywhere uses port 5631 by default, which is fine.

Anyone done this before?  Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

Try a static NAT mapping:

ip nat inside source static tcp {inside ip} 5631 {outside ip} 5631

From what I understand, PC Anywhere uses port 5631 for TCP and port 5632 for UDP, and you need to allow for both.

We have PC Anywhere coming from the outside through our PIX firewall and 3620 router.

The entries on the 3620 look like this

access-list 102 permit tcp host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx host 10.14.3.23 eq 5631
access-list 102 permit udp host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx host 10.14.3.23 eq 5632

I not a CCNA or even experienced with Cisco routers (you will see me asking questions here)  but I do have PC Anywhere working across the internet.

good luck
