Hi,

for outbound traffic you do not have to do anything as by default everything is allowed from inside to a lower securiy interface (outside) so if the connection is initiated from the inside you will be fine. However if you are trying to connect from outside in you have to present the host you are trying to get to on the outside world this is done by a static.

static (insidie,outside) 217.publicIP 10.2.1.1(privateIP) netmask 255.255.255.255 0.0

then you will have an outside access-list
                                                  source IP     destination IP  
access-list outside permit tcp host 62.x.x.x host 217.publicIP eq 5500
access-list outside permit tcp host 62.x.x.x host 217.publicIP eq 9830

apply the access-lits to the outside interface
access-group outiside in interface outside

Four outbound traffic not exist a problem, the default is permit all outbound traffic

For inbound traffic you need 3 steps.

1.- Configure a Static NAT or Port Forwarding in your adsl router
2.- Configure a access-list in the pix firewall when you permit the trafic
3.- Configure a Satic NAt o port forwarding in the pix.

Hi.

How configure in the adsl router depend  the vendor and model.   ¿Where you put the login and password of your adsl account?  (in de pix or the adsl router).

Port Forwarding is like a Static Nat  ( match outside ip to inside ip)  but in port forwarding only translated specific ports  and in the static nat  you match all the ports.

In the PDM of pix  the  port forwarding is configured in:

Main -> Configuration -> Translation Rules
Rules -> Add ->  put your internal ip and mask 255.255.255.255,  ->  select static and select Interface -> Select the Redirect port box,  select TCP and put 5500 in both boxs,  
Do the same for the port  9830
