cisco asa 5505 port forwarding help

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have servers hosted at a colo and I am trying to allow printing from the app on the servers to the office.  I am having trouble figuring out how exactly to do this.

so basically... the outside IP of the office router is and I need anything sent to port 9100 to be forwarded to is attached to interface vlan2... when I try to add a static map it won't allow me to specify that IP address and gives some error about using PAT and having to use interface instead of the IP.  so it ends up being something like:

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 9100 9100 netmask

where it says interface it won't allow me to use the IP or vlan2 or even outside... anything besides interface gives me an error.  I added a line to the access list to allow port 9100 also (and also cleared the translation tables) and it doesn't work.  any idea what I'm doing wrong here?
