How do I configure the PIX 501 to allow the necessary ports to  allow Remote Work Webplace, etc.?

OK, I have read every answer on setting up Remote Web Workplace , and I have read the suggested reading by TechSoEasy (which I have found it is not -- although I love it). But, I just can't seem to be able to configure my Cisco PIX to allow the ports to point to the server if that is the right terminology. If I am reading and understanding some of it correctly, I need to open ports 25, 80, 443, 444, and 4125. My guess is port 25 is already available since I can receive email?

Currently, I am running SBS 2003 Standard with one NIC and, therefore, no firewall. I have Internet provided by Time-Warner cable with a static IP address runing through a PIX 501 firewall/router which is defaultly configured. It is set up to use PAT rather than NAT so I do not know if that is correct -- but it works fine. All of the work stations are set up to obtain their IP addresses, etc. via DHCP, and the server is the DHCP server.

So, how do I configure the PIX to allow me to access the Remote Web Workplace, Outlook and Sharepoint? Please assume I know nothing about how to configure the Cisco router and am completely stupid when it comes to using the command interface. In fact, if I had to use the command interface, I would most likely need to find a friend who can configure a PIX or have Jeff connect remotely, Jeff being TechSoEasy who always helps me a lot and most likely knows my lack of knowledge when it comes to the Cisco router and SBS.  If possible, can it be done using the PIX PDM?

Hello,

You will need to configure a port map rule on your pix for port 4125

Log into PIX

config t
static (inside,outside) tcp interface RWW 192.168.1.X RWW netmask
255.255.255.255 0 0

If you do a show config command on the pix. you should see the the existing configuration. You can get an idea of the command santax in that.
