configuring port forwarding on Cisco 5515 adsm v6.6

I am trying to create a port forwarder on a cisco firewall, basically    216.x.x.39:46611  -->

I have been trying different combinations and such for a couple of days and still can't get this to punch through.  I know that works on the inside, I have tested it and it comes up

so far this is what I have
network objects

h-webint  host
h-webext host    216.x.x.39

service objects
h-web                tcp            dest (1-65535)           source 46611
h-webtrans       tcp            dest  9000                  source (1-65535)

Nat rule
source int         any                                         destin interface  outside
source addr      any                                         dest   addr           h-webext
                                                                           service                  h-web

source  nat            static                                  dest addr              h-webint
source addr           --original--                         service                   --original--

access rule
interface         outside
source             any
dest                  h-webint
service              h-webtran

ok, I think I am following you, my command line ability is worse than my adsm.

So, my outside interface is called TWC and yes I am using a free ip from my pool of ips

I am trying what you posted, but I am getting an error message
Cisco# configure terminal
cisco(config)# object network internal_server
cisco(config-network-object)#   host
I am getting an error message with the next command
cisco(config-network-object)#  nat(inside,outside) static host 216.x.x.39 46611 900
Error %invalid input detect at marker and the marker is the open (

As I said my command line knowledge is not great, I have tried backing up levels and I still get the same error.
are your inside and outside interfaces called inside and outside?

so I changed the line to
nat (nas-main,twtc) static host 216.x.x.39 tcp 46611 9000

and now the pointer is saying error at the first number of the IP address
nat (nas-main,twtc) static 216.x.x.39 tcp 46611 9000

this is becoming a tragedy.

I entered your command and it the error marker moved to tcp now

cisco(config-network-object)#  nat (nas-main,twtc) static 216.x.x.39  tcp 46611 9000

I promise I am typing in what you are telling me to, I even retyped it twice
:) If I doubt go to where the error is and type ?

the keyword 'service' needs entering.....

nat (nas-main,twtc) static 216.x.x.39 service  tcp 46611 9000

that fixed the command problems but I am still unable to access the internal server from the outside.  It occurred to me, maybe the problem is the url I am using  https://216.x.x.39:46611.
Could it be the https?

so, I setup a 1 to 1 nat just trying to access the internal server via https on standard ports and I am able to do so, I just can't get the port 46611 to connect.

I ran into some overall problems with the router and will re submit this question after they are resolved
