I really need a "dumb country boy" explanation of how I can enable remote access via PCAnywhere via PIX 501.

Don't ask me how, but I've got 2 tunnels created between my main office and two remote sites and it's working great. I need to give one of our software vendors some temporary access via PCAW so they can do some maintenance and then I'll

I'm in management so I'm not very smart, and my experience with the PIX has been through the GUI, not the command line, so other answers with command line settings make me nervous.

I'm hoping someone can provide me simple instructions to get this setup. If the easiest way is command line then I can find the command line interface via the GUI but that's about it. Please don't assume I can do any more without specific instructions. For what it's worth, I take instructions pretty good (at least according to my wife).

Since this seems to help you folks smart enough to understand it, here's the printout from the PIX. (BTW, since we live in the rural midwest, I can't find any local CISCO folks to help or I would have done that already.)

What is the IP address of the host that is the PCA host?

You can edit, then cut/paste this into the GUI, Command line, Multiple Command line window

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 5631 192.168.1.? 5631 netmask
static (inside,outside) udp interface 5632 192.168.1.? 5632 netmask
access-list outside_access_in remark Permit PCAnywhere access through firewall
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 5631
access-list outside_access_in permit udp any interface outside eq 5632
access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

Done. The remote PCA user will connect using the PIX outside interface IP address.
