I might be wrong but if you want to connect to an internal host from
an external source you have to configure your PIX with static NAT and
create appropriate access-rule entries. Hiding your internal host
behind the PIX's external interface IP or any another global IP (PAT)
matter would not work.
However one thing you can do is port forwarding, whereby connections
originating from an external source destined to the PIX's external
interface IP (or any other global IP) on a specific port are forwarded
to a specific internal host.
