HI Experts,

I have question if someone can see if this will open ports 444 on my Pix.
here's the config file I want to use
this is what I'v come up with so the users that VPN in and can access our sharepoint server

static (inside, outside) tcp interface 444 10.10.10.X 444
access-list outside_in permit tcp any host XX.147.8.82 eq 444
access-group outside_ in in interface outside


here's the cisco config

If users VPN in then you don't need anything like nat or access-list or any changes to the PIX. If the VPN users can't get to the portal now, then it is a configuration problem either on the VPN server or on the Sharepoint server, not the PIX.

Your proposed config changes will allow anyone on the Internet to access your sharepoint on port 444

yeah thats not what I want. thought maybe since the users vpn in they should already have access....but the pix was blocking the port.
yeah I'm new to sharepoint so I'll give that a whirl. I 'll let you know the outcome.
