Cisco ACL Permits

By Spector ·
I'm going to make a change in my Cisco firewall settings and I have to open port 5001. It's for a so called Slingbox which sends tv-singal over Interet for remote reciving elsewere.

A bit of my ACL configuration are now:
inside permit ip any any
outside permit tcp any host x.x.x.x eq 5001

static (inside,outside) addresses are set

But I can't get it to work. One thing that came up in my mind was if I have to permit from inside:
permit tcp host x.x.x.x any
or does the permit ip any any permit everything or do I have to permit tcp?

It was the settings in the Slingbox that had to be configured again for it to work...

Other areas to check

Could it possibly be blocked by your security hardware or software? Our symantec endpoint security is very good about blocking services that we want or need. Also check if the server firewall could have something to do with it.
