If you are trying to access by public IP, then you will need to either stop doing that or else add extra equipment.
If you are trying to access by hostname, then the approach to take is to alter what the DNS server tells you is the correspondance between name and IP.
If your DNS server is local, use "split views" or else use local IPs only and let the PIX translate the IPs as they go outwards to remote systems, by using the 'dns' keyword on the 'static' command.
If your DNS server is remote, add the 'dns' keyword to the 'static' command and the PIX will automatically translate the response IPs into local IPs.
The older mechanism for doing these translations was the 'alias' command, but that is deprecated now and is not supported in PIX 7.0 so it is better to get accustomed to the 'dns' keyword now.
