Hi - I have a PIX 501 running version 6.3. The outside interface receives it's IP address from a DHCP server. There are two different hosts on the network that I am trying to allow remote desktop connection to. These hosts are "anton" and "brock" and have been defined in the PIX. Anton's RDP port is 4000 and Brock's is at 4444. I just want to PAT the two ports from the outside interface to the corresponding inside host.

The issue is that while anton's RDP (4000) works fine from the outside world, brock's (4444) does not. Also, I am not able to PAT any other services out and have them work except for the one RDP at port 4000. It's very confusing because everything looks right from what I can tell. Attached is my running-config. My ACL is called "inbound." Any help on this weird one would be much appreciated! thanks!
