Static NAT on Cisco 2600 from outside host to internal host

Cisco 2600 router.What is the command to allow a host on the Internet to be able to RDP to an internal server?  The Cisco 2600 needs a nat statement on it, I know.  The external ip on the 2600 is: EXTERNAL_IP.  The internal ip address of the server is INTERNAL_IP.

Would the command be:
in nat inside source static tcp EXTERNAL_IP 3389 INTERNAL_IP 3389  ??

the fact that I am trying to translate an external destination address to an internal destination address makes me wonder about the term 'inside' being used in the statement, vs. using outside.

Thanks

Nopes, it'll only be:
ip nat inside source static internal_ip external_ip

The syntax usually is:
ip nat inside souce static inside_local inside_global

inside_local refers to a local area network address on the inside of your router
inside_global refers to a globally addressable address on the outside of your router (this address should be reachable by Internet hosts)

Here's a very good document explaining you in-depth what the definitions mean. It may be confusing at first but you'll get it:

You can limit access to particular ports when you place your access lists on the outside interface.

Hope this helps
