you need to forward port 3389 through to your servers IP address, when the request hits your public IP, it then passes it through to the PIX, which then fires through to the server

Nothing to change in the router.
On the pix you have to open port 3389 for RDP and nat the outside to the internal IP of the machine you want to connect to. As follows (access list 101 is applied on interface outside):

name 172.16.110.2 RDP_server
access-list 101 permit tcp any host 217.52.59.111 eq 3389
access-list 101 permit ip host 62.X.X.X any
static (inside,outside) 62.X.X.X RDP_server netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0


hope that helps.

(This is for pix 506e)
