PIX 501 Won't Open Ports or Stealth..

Semi newbie here,

I've got a PIX 501 running about two years now.   I've added and removed items in the past but having problem now.

I'm trying to open:

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host trbus-ext eq 3495
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host trbus-ext eq 20001

I've got a a web server & ftp running on trbus-ext and that works -- and I can't figure out how those settings are open (newbie) -

Too many days trying this -- any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

It depends on your static (inside,outside) settings. Do you have static maps for those two ports?

  clear xlate
  static (inside,outside) tcp trbus-ext 3495 trbus-int 3495 netmask 255.255.255.255
  static (inside,outside) tcp trbus-ext 20001 trbus-int 20001 netmask 255.255.255.255

  access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host trbus-ext eq 3495
  access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host trbus-ext eq 20001

Re-apply the access-list to the interface to effect the changes
  access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

Here's the only static line referencing trbus:

static (inside,outside) trbus-ext trbus netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

Not sure what u mean with "clear xlate"

or

"Re-apply" the access-list to the interface to effect the changes
  access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

The above line is already present.  It is right after the "static" section.

Yes, That is why I said to re-apply it by putting it in again.

"clear xlate" command will clear all current dynamic nat translations in case those that you want to allow in are in use somewhere as a dynamic xlate. Since you already have a 1-1 static nat to for this host, that should not be an issue.

Ok --  put this line in a SECOND TIME:

access-group outside_access_in in interface outside


THEN:

add clear xlate   -- not near 501 at the moment... use telnet or PDM - for this

You can clear xlate from any prompt
Telnet
PIX#clear xlate
Or from PDM, Command line utility
clear xlate
