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.

I am looking for the exact commands on how to do a static traslation on a PIX. I appreciate yuor help
Assuming that you have a pool of IP addresses to choose from, make sure that the static global addresses are removed from the nat pool. We'd have to see your complete config to make many more detailed recommendations:

PIX#config t
PIX(config)# static (inside,outside)<global ip> <local ip> netmask
You also have to allow ssh access from the outside interface

PIX(config)#ssh outside
or limit to specific IP addresses
PIX(config)#ssh outside
