PIX 506 PAT

I have one internet (public) IP address. (the IP of the external PIX interface)

My internal clients/users have been configured to use PAT for internet through that IP.

I have a mail (exchange) server internally that I would like to receive external mail. I would like all mail (SMTP) forwarded to my PIX to be redirected to this internal server. Such that all SMTP to the external IP address is automatically forwarded or mapped by the pix to the internal exchange server.

I am not sure how to do this because of only the one IP address I have.
Is this possible.
I am told that using the conduit command does not work when PAT is used for the same IP address.
Please help.

URGENT for my Mails.... the CEO is on my NECK

One issue. If you have MS Exchange mail server, you need to disable fixup protocol smtp:

no fixup protocol smtp 25

>I am told that using the conduit command does not work when PAT is used for the same IP address
Correct. You cannot use conduits to create port translation. You will have to upgrade your PIX to 6.3x and convert your conduits to acls.

Error, error, warning....my bad....

Conduits - has nothing to do with PAT - but highly suggest converting to acls now. Conduits have been depricated and you will eventually HAVE to convert.

Statics - only in latest 6.x code can you use static port translations.

I love using PDM, and am abit slow in commands.
Well this is my config....

Please all the other things are working fine. Ignore the ones for switch because we also connect elswhere what i want is a command that I will add or remove to the below config to enable all SMTP traffic the pix receives to forward it to the internal exchange server (mail server 20.1.1.24)

Thanks in advance

Thanks,

now how can I allow somebody to telnet into my SMTP server on port 25.

Does the port mapping work with telnet.

or I have to enable telnet on the pix .....

Thanks in advance

It should work fine. Normal mail connects to port 25 (smtp) so telnetting to that port is no different.

Just telnet to that port:

telnet 62.8.68.90 25

Then use "show access-list" to see if the hit-count increases on the access-list entry...
