Please try the following:

static (inside,outside) <public_ip> <private_ip>
access-list 101 permit tcp any host <public_ip> eq 992
access-group 101 in interface outside

If you only have one public ip address available try the following:

static (inside,outside) tcp  <public_ip>  992 <private_ip> 992 netmask
access-list 101 permit tcp any host <public_ip> eq 992
access-group 101 in interface outside
write mem

Hope this helps!

Is it possible you can type out step by step as if you was typing it in on the command line yourself. I'm using Hyper Terminal.

As Wi-Fi growth and popularity continues to climb, not everyone understands the risks that come with connecting to public Wi-Fi or even offering Wi-Fi to employees, visitors and guests. Download the resource kit to make sure your safe wherever business takes you!

pixfirewall> enable
pixfirewall# config terminal
pixfirewall(config)# static (inside,outside) tcp  <public_ip>  992 <private_ip> 992 netmask
pixfirewall(config)# access-list 101 permit tcp any host <public_ip> eq 992
pixfirewall(config)# access-group 101 in interface outside
pixfirewall(config)# write mem

Please verify that you don't have any access-group applied to the outside interface, if you do, please name the access-list with that same name.

Also it will be easier if you upload your current configuration, please mask important information such as ip addresses.

Thanks that worked. I already had a Static (inside,outside) line. That's what was confusing me. I entered the access-list 101 & access-group lines and it works.

Take care and have a nice day!
