Hello,

I have to open port number 5333 on my pix firewall to allow a chat program to work on all the inside workstations.  As I do not know specifically what internal IP address will use the port, how do I do this on the PIX?

Thanks in Advance!

on the access list you have defined on your outside interface add the following
access-list (nameofacl) permit tcp any (localsubnet) eq 5333

Im assuming this is a tcp port
hope this helps
