I use accesslists to control permissions in and out. For a particular vendor who needs access to a machine, I just enable an accesslist for a particular time period from a particular IP address (assuming you dont want them to have VPN) through to the machine in question, then they can remote desktop or whatever in..

Do you have the ADSM Launcher for the PIX, it makes configuring it a whole lot simpler and convenient?

the adsm may have been already loaded, check out the address of the PIX from a browser, using https://<pix ip address>
Else, you'll need a cisco account to get it from their website.

Can you telnet into the PIX, as it can be done from the command line.

access-list outside_access_in extended permit ip host <vendors ip address> host <your external ipaddress> time-range <Vendors time access>

Start with out time for a test, i.e.
access-list outside_access_in extended permit ip host <vendors ip address> host <your external ipaddress>

The thing debugger AU forgot is the access-group command to apply the access-list and make it active.
Can you please post your config? You can get this by running the sh run  command from the command line while at the # prompt. Please copy it and paste it here so I can review it and tell you the appropriate changes to make.
Cheers!
