Have the following network: (subnet) -------- switch  (Windows Server 2003 & 6 workstations)
                                                |  (inside
                                                |  (outside
                                                | (subnet) -------- switch ---------- Internet router

Right now they are two seperate networks, but have the need to connect 3 users on the subnet to not only connect to the Windows server (same subnet) but the Internet subnet as well.  Additionally, have 1 user on the Internet subnet who needs to get to the Windows server.  This is the owner and does not want to be on the subnet (paranoid).   We have a Pix 501 lying around no $$ to purchase a router.  Placed in between the networks solves the problem, but cannot create access-list for (outside) to access (inside) Windows Server.

static (inside, outside)
access-list 101 permit tcp any host eq 135
access-list 101 permit tcp any host eq 139
access-list 101 permit udp any host eq 137
access-list 101 permit udp any host eq 138
access-group 101 in interface outside

Explanation: = Windows server = Outside user
