Port Forwarding - Cisco

Hello Experts

Well, last week I got help here to gain access to a customer's Cisco 851w router.  That question has been answered and I've got it configured for internet access using pppoe.

Now I need to configure port forwarding for printing.

As near as I can tell I just need the CLI commands to set up port forwarding to the ports they've assigned.  

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I input that command and get an error.  It doesn't like the work "source"

The full command I'm giving is:

Router#(config-if)ip nat inside source static tcp 9100-9102 < public static IP address >
Port forwarding is achieved through a static NAT translation using the optional extendable keyword. The following is the syntax for the IOS command that will automatically redirect all traffic to a host computer.

ip nat inside source static tcp [internal address of computer] port [public address assigned by ISP] port extendable

I'm not sure why folks stopped posting for this, but the customer and I decided together to simply replace the router with something he could work with without having to call a professional every time he needed to make any changes.<br /><br />So I've opted to withdraw the question.<br /><br />Thanks anyway,everyone.<br /><br />thedslguy
