How to open ports for eMule Cisco ASA 5505

I can't open tcp 4662 port in my new firewall Cisco ASA 5505. I wish to permit the traffic from the outside to one pc on my lan. The pc Ip on the lan is and I wish to open port 4662 TCP.
I have use these:

access-list outside_access_in extended permit tcp host interface outside eq 4662
static (inside,outside) tcp interface 4662 4662 netmask
but the mule dosen't work.

this is now my running-config on cisco

>access-list acl_icmp extended permit icmp any any
>access-list outside_access_in extended permit tcp host interface outside eq 4662
>access-group acl_icmp in interface outside

Modify these as follows:

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 4662
access-list outside_access_in permit icmp any any echo-reply
access-list outside_access_in permit icmp any any unreachable
access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

wold it not be better to
policy-map global_policy
 class inspection_default
  inspect icmp
and not bother with
access-list outside_access_in permit icmp any any echo-reply
access-list outside_access_in permit icmp any any unreachable
Supposedly same result, but I've seen different results in different versions of PIX/ASA code. "old school" always works.  Keeping me on my toes, mate!

Maybe you want to open UDP 4672 also?

static (inside,outside) udp interface 4672 4672 netmask
access-list outside_access_in permit udp any interface outside eq 4672
