PIX 515 and SSH

I am trying to figure out how to give access to outside vendors to inside servers through SSH. I have been able to coonct to the PIX using SSH but how do I configure the PIX to allow outside clients to get to inside resouses using SSH?

If you're trying to give outside folks access to your servers and such inside the firewall, you will need to add a static translation to your NAT table, giving those internal devices external IPs.  Once the internal device is reachable by the outside world, you'll then set your rules.  You'll want to allow SSH (preferably only from specific IPs) and disallow all else, to maintain the highest level of security possible.
