I have been trying to configure the Cisco PIX 501 for the past couple of days to redirect a few ports and have been unsuccessful so far.

I have two machines which act as the following: = Exchange = Webserver, FTP, SQL Server, DNS

Thus I have the following services which need to be redirected accordingly:

SMTP      TCP      25
POP      TCP      110
IMAP      TCP      143
HTTPS      TCP      443

FTP      TCP      21
HTTP      TCP      80
DNS      UDP      53
SQL      TCP      1435

Below is the PIX configuration.

I am not sure what else I'm missing. Please, any help would be highly appreciated.

Building configuration...
