Good morning all  I am trying to setup a Cisco ASA 5505 to translate a outside vendors network traffic to a inside server to pull data from our data base. but every time I NAT there outside IP to our inside server IP the firewall start to block all inside traffic to the server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

    You dont need to NAT their server to yours, you only need to permit traffic from their servers public IP address to your servers public address.

    I.E.  for your server, create a static NAT address to one of your public IP addresses.  Then permit traffic from your customers server to the public address your server is NATted to.
