i have a cisco pix 515e that sits in front of a symantec spam 8240 appliance. we need to nat the ip address of the box to a public ip 67.a.b.c which is done - no problem. what we need to do next is nat the virtual interface that is used for sending mail out to the same public ip. the virtual ip address cant accept mail from the outside.
i am looking for advice configuring this on the firewall.
thanks in advance.

OK. Use a static port xlate for inbound email and conditional nat defined with acl for outbound NAT

static (inside,outside) tcp 67.a.b.c smtp 8240PrivateIP smtp netmask 255.255.255.0
global (outside) 10 67.a.b.c
nat (inside) 10 access-list SPAM
access-list SPAM permit ip host <virtual IP> any

static (inside,outside) tcp 67.a.b.c smtp 172.16.1.44 smtp netmask 255.255.255.0 ====> will provide static nat for public to private port 25.

global (outside) 10 67.a.b.c ===> creates a pool of mapped address for nat.

nat (inside) 10 access-list SPAM ===> enables natting on the inside interface for those who meet acl requirments.

access-list SPAM permit ip host 172.16.1.32 any ====> allows virtual ip to be natted.

am i understanding this correctly? i do have other nat commands in place - how will this effect them?
i guess that it will not - do you agree?

thanks!

lrmoore - i havent tried your suggestion yet but i will here in a few - but i did try this. i dont have a dmz yet.

static (inside,outside) 67.a.b.16 172.16.1.44 netmask 255.255.255.255

access-list 100 permit tcp any host 67.a.b.16 eq pop3 ===> on outside int scanning incoming traffic
access-list 100 permit tcp any host 67.a.b.16 eq smtp
access-list 100 permit tcp any host 67.a.b.16 eq www
access-list 100 permit tcp any host 67.a.b.16 eq 995

static (inside,outside) tcp 67.a.b.16 25 172.16.1.32 25 netmask
 255.255.255.255  ==> port forwarding attempt but i get this error "ERROR: duplicate of existing static"

i'll post the results of you suggestion today.

thanks.

>error "ERROR: duplicate of existing static"
Correct. You can't do both. That's why you have to do conditional nat with a global and nat w/access-list

lrmoore - looks like it is working. we are sending mail from the correct address. we are doing more test and will confirm later. below i attached your config entry into the PIX.


PIX# conf t
PIX(config)# global (outside) 10 67.a.b.c
Global 67.a.b.c will be Port Address Translated
PIX(config)# nat (inside) 10 access-list SPAM
ERROR: access-list <SPAM> does not exist
ERROR: fail to insert nat entry
PIX(config)# access-list SPAM permit ip host 172.16.1.32 any
PIX(config)# nat (inside) 10 access-list SPAM
PIX(config)#

thanks.
