ISA 2004, exposing BCM for remote access via public IP

We are running ISA 2004 and on our network, a phone company just installed a new phone system.  I am being asked to expose the BCM's IP to the outside so the phone company can remote in and program the phone.  I'm a little lost here.  

My phone system IP is and they want to come in on port 59001.  What sort of rule do I need to expose this phone system to a public IP so the phone company can access it?

Long time no see.

In ISA, create a new protocol for tcp inbound port 59001 to 59001 and give it a name like phone_in
Here is a link to the process if you are unsure on how to do this. (Sorry, but saves me typing it all out again)

On the isa server select the publish a server rule.
Highlight the firewall policy on the left then right-click firewall policy and select new - publish a server rule
Select the new protocol we have just selected and when prompted, put in the address

make sure your external router is also forwarding this port to the ISA external nic.
