Port forward across MPLS?

I have an ASA 5505 at There's a provider managed MPLS router at A host at, across the MPLS, has a cam system at port 8000.

From the subnet I can reach I added PAT on the ASA for this port, and PAT works fine for hosts on the subnet. There is a route on the ASA to the 4. subnet. There is an access-list assigned to NAT (inside) 0:

access-list nat0_acl extended permit ip

So, I know the port traffic is already traversing the MPLS. Does anyone know how I pass through the port forward from the ASA through to the other side of the MPLS?

You need to make sure return traffic goes back through the MPLS and exits out the firewall.

Usually you'll see a local firewall at your other side. Make sure you route-map that traffic out through MPLS.

Run trace routes to check for this.

There's no firewall at the other side. It's a provider-based MPLS network. They are taking forever getting back to me and this case is preventing me asking other questions so I'd like to close it.
