Pix 501 NAT with Local to Local IP address.

Good day all experts!!!
I have another easy question for you Cisco guys. I am just not seeing the right solution no matter what I try.

I have a Pix 501.
Normal configuration with a few RDP connections nothing too exciting.
I set up an IPSEC site to site Tunnel. It is working great as far as connecting.
I have a server that is
I have been requested to put in a NAT statement that points all traffic coming to to NAT to

I tried using a simple static command like:
static (inside,inside)
That doesn't seem to do the trick. I am rusty on the PIX as I haven't worked on one in a couple of years.

Lead me in the right direction of how to NAT  a local to a local address, where to put the commands what commands they are and so forth. An article on the subject would be great as well. Not just a NAT article but maybe a step by step.

I know that is a huge request in the details, but just any help at all would be appreciated.

Thank you!!!

Ok, well I didn't think so either, but I wanted to be sure.

Here is what I need:
I have an IPSEC tunnel setup between two locations.
I am at the main location.
The remote location needs to be able to hit, but going to the IP address They already have a client setup on, so they requested that I NAT the traffic from to, so that they are using as the IP that they communicate with.

I hope that helps, I am so sorry for the confusion, please ask anything at all to help clarify it even more.

Thank you!!!

A shot in the dark: is an available IP in your network:

Add to the network interface card of your server as a secondary IP address and make sure that the app is either bound to any address or both addresses so that it's reachable.

If the secondary address does not arp on the pix, you can create an arp entry manually.

Jesper's comment above should solve the issue without having to work or make any configuration on the pix.

Ok here is what I did:
I was unable to get away with adding the secondary IP address to the card with what the remote customer wanted to do.
So I setup a ACL with the IP address and ports needed, and then added a static entry to that access list. Works like a charm.

I don't know how to give you the points, when clearly I didn't use the solution. So how about I just divide it all down the middle, since you did take the time to help me out, and I REALLY appreciate the time and energy you guys put into all this.

Thank you,
