We have a new Cisco ASA 5505 (just taken out of the box) and need assistance on how to allow inbound traffic on port 2222 to an internal machine. The internal machine has a static IP of (e1) and the external WAN address on e0 is The internal machine is running PCAnywhere configured for port 2222. I have read other postings here on port forwarding and understand that a static NAT entry has to be made and then assign an ACL to it but cannot figure out the right way to do it. The 5505 did come with ADSM. If possible, could someone please post exact examples of what I should input? It would be greatly appreciated! Keep in mind this device has no other configurations and is straight out of the box. I am also a novice with the Cisco IOS. Thanks!

copy/paste this exactly as it is into the command line or multiline command line tool in the asdm:

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 2222 2222 netmask
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 2222
access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

Doesn't PCA require 2 ports, one TCP and one UDP? What is the 2nd port you are using?

Thanks ever-so-much! Worked perfectly. For security reasons, we have both PCA ports using the same port number.
