I have a windows 2000 Advance server behind a cisco pix 515e.
One interface 10.X.X.X translated to 192.x.x.x on the pix. I would like to administer this server remotely outside my network.
any help on how to go about this will be greatly appreciated

    The safest thing to do is setup a VPN server and connect to that via VPN.  Then you'll (from a networking standpoint) appear to be on the same network as the server and should be able to reach it.

    If you want to throw security to the wind, then configure the router to forward port 3389 to the server and use Remote Desktop/Terminal Services to access the system.
