allowing Terminal Services through my router via NAT

I have a Cisco 802 ISDN Router. I know the command to that allows a 1-to-1 NAT translation to allow Terminal Services through my network:

ip nat inside sosurce static tcp x.x.x.x 3389 y.y.y.y 3389 extendable

but I can't seem to get it to load/stay in the config file. I also want to allow access to a firewall on the inside (LAN) so it can be remotely monitored from the outside (WAN).

Does anyone have help or suggestions? I'm a Cisco newbie so I'm having lots of problems.

No offense, but you need to rethink your plan.  Opening 3389 on the router is a huge security no-no.

If you are looking to leave it up at all times I suggest you do a hard VPN tunnel!  If it's only needed occasionaly then use a VPN client.
