I am running an apache webserver at home using www.no-ip.com for DNS forwarding (I have DSL service with Dynamic IP).  I am currently using a Linksys Wireless router (WRT54G) and everything is working just fine (remote desktop from the outside world also works just fine).  Here is the problem I am having.  I replace the Linksys router with a PIX501 and want to configure to allow the outside world to see my site.  Please help.  I am not a network admin/engineer but I am an advance PC user who can follow instructions well.  Thanks for your help.

PS:  Please let me if you need my current configuration code.

Telnet/console to the PIX, go to config mode;

PIX#enable
PIX#config t
PIX(config)static (inside,outside) tcp interface www <InternalIPOfWebServer> www netmask 255.255.255.255

PIX(config)access-list Outside_In permit tcp any host interface eq www

PIX(config)access-list Outside_in in interface outside

 I believe Rajesh meant to say the following for the ACL (hey, no worries, it's Friday):
access-list Outside_In permit tcp any interface outside eq www

  Also, very important, run this after creating your "static (inside,outside)..." entry:
clear xlate   <- clears the NAT table

Thank you very much guys.  But I have another problem.  How dow I assign an internal IP address to my server. The PIX 501 Firewall is currently loaded with the factory default configuration and can get on the internet okay. The DHCP is set as <dhcpd address 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.33 inside>

I assign the my server machine with the 192.168.1.10, subnet 255.255.255.0, and Gateway 192.168.1.1.  This does not allow me to connect to the internet any longer (no connection).

Please help.
