Static route with port range

I am trying to create a static map from the outside to the inside with a port range on a Cisco 515e.  I have created and saved the access-list below.  However, the static route continues to receive an error stating Invalid Global Port Range .  I have found some solutions but they are clear as mud. From what i can understand, the pix can not do statics with port ranges.  Any ideas and I remember now why I haven't used Cisco in years.

Here are the commands:
static (inside,outside) tcp XX.XX.182.213 range 6400 8191 XXX.XXX.0.206 range 6400 8191 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

Maybe it's just semantics, but I suspect you understand this is not a static route, it's a static NAT statement.

Not sure you can do what you're trying to with a port range.  I've only ever done it with a single port, like translating 80 to 8080, or something similar.

I am afraid that isn't going to work for a static. You can only use a port range in access lists. You'll have to create every static separately :-~
Sorry for the bad news.

Hi there,

You can make a static nat rule and that covers all ports. You can also make a static pat rule, but you have to make one for each port you want to open. Beware of doing this though, as each static pat translation will consume some memory on your PIX... if you have to many it will crash because your memory will fill up. Here's a doc on how to setup PAT rules.

These commands also work with PIXes.

Cheers!

so where it says the protocol tcp or udp, after that it says a port... Sometimes it's a word such as smtp or http. When you need to make a port range you have to make a separate static statement for every port. It's not very fun but that's how it works. Access lists allow ranges to be opened in the firewall, but statics must be specified one by one. Again, be carefil to watch your ram if you add large numbers of statics... Hundreds or thousands can fill your memory up and crash the box. I've done that before by accident. Make sure you leave 10-15% free.

Cheers!

What Pugglewuggle is saying is that if you have more than one public address you can use one of them to do a 1-on-1 static. That way the public address is (exclusively) linked to the XXX.XXX.0.206 address (one on one) so you don't have to create a static for every port you want to forward through the static. You then define the ports you want to pass through in your access list, in which you can use port ranges.
But that only works if you have more than one public address available........
