Our main office has several public IPs available that are being managed by a PIX-501.  We recently added a device inside the network and we would like to have a single IP send all traffic to the device without filtering any ports.  These are the commands that I setup on the PIX (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the public IP):

static (inside,outside) xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 0 0
pdm location inside
access-list outside_access_in permit udp any host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
access-list outside_access_in permit ip any host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
access-list outside_access_in permit esp any host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

To test this I enabled telnet on the new device.  From inside the network I can connect to it via its internal ip (, but from outside the network I cannot connect via its external IP.  Am I missing a command?
