I have Network elements I need to access remotely.  I am trying to configure PIX 501 to do this for me.  I have a range of  5 public IP addresses.  I also plan to use a private IP inside.  Any suggestions ??

    You will need the proper commands to forward ports on the pix from your public ips to your private

    access-group <name> in interface outside
    access-list <name> permit tcp any host xx.xx.xx.xx eq xxxx
    hostname(config)# static (inside,outside) tcp xx.xx.xx.xx xxxx netmask

    you will need the above commands for each port you want to forward
    xxxx=port number
    xx.xx.xx.xx=ip address

    Along with the config above by centrepc, you also need an access-list to forward these traffic or else PIX will block 'em.

    access-list <name> permit tcp any host 78.x.104.26 eq 5631
    access-list <name> permit tcp any host 78.x.104.26 eq 5632

    access-group <name> in interface outside

    This was from a similar post that rsivanandan and I answered earlier for someone who wanted to forward pcanywhere ports
