when someone says that they want to point a router to a specific PI server, or any server at that, are they talking about providing a permit access (acl) from and interface to the server or from subnets on the router to the server? or is this something else?

What is a PI server? Sounds like they want to filter all traffic through the server like a proxy-server.

its DMZ servers.

I would assume that all they want is to create ACLs permitting traffic? Or how else would I pointed from router to the server

Do you mean "IP" server?  

If so, I don't know that I've really heard it expressed like that.  Generally, routers don't "point" to a server.  They have "routes" to networks.

Can you elaborate as to what you're looking for?

If those are DMZ servers - they want to proxy your outbound traffic that leaves the router to filter through the server. For example, web-proxy or a snort device to filter through to the internet.

Unless they are literally asking to point a router to a server connect it directly and make sure they are both on the same subnet. which I highly doubt.

these are new dmz servers. if thats the case, this should have been configured for the old dmz servers as well. how could i check the config for that? i do know the old ips for the dmz servers. how can i check how the router is currently configured for the old dmz servers. if they're saying that thats the case then will see. any ideas?

sh run | s x.x.x.x
where x = old server ip
or sh run | s x.x.x
where x = old server ip instead of searching the whole ip you can search the first 3 octets.

so there is an access list permit statement from 172.28.5.40 to the dmz server. so i guess its just a traffic permit? thats all they're talking about?

They are referring to static NAT (Port Forwarding)

They want you to direct (forward) a port on your router for traffic from your public IP to point to the IP address of a server
eg traffic request to 10.10.10.10:80 can be forwarded to a server with IP 192.168.1.1.

they have DMZ servers and on those DMZ's they had Pi servers which are some sort of data collecting/reporting application. I guess thats why PI server is, some sort of data reporting collecting app.

Let's assume some things Your PI Server's local IP address is 192.168.1.1 and operates on port 5555
public IP address is 10.10.10.10

Your nat statement will be
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.1 5555 10.10.10.10 5555
