"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Using:
Access-list outside permit tcp any host eq port
static (inside,outside) tcp outside_ip port inside_ip port netmask 255.255.255.255
access-group outside in interface outside

This way you only open up one port to the inside.

Oops, first line should be:
Access-list outside permit tcp any host outside_ip eq port

If your ASA is 8.3 or higher, there are some changes to this though.

So for example if the port is rdp 3389 add it to both instances ?

static (inside,outside) tcp outside_ip port inside_ip port

Correct.
You can also use it to forward one port to another (like 8080 outside to 80 inside) but in this case you can leave both ports the same.
