publishing a site website service with ssl decryption

I have an internal server which i want to publish its service to public and need to do ssl decryption, does that means i need to do "inbound ssl decryption"?

and if so, as the website is natted from outside to inside, in the decryption rule in the destination, do i put the public ip or the natted ip?

@chuckles , Yes, In order to decrypt traffic to/from an Internal Web server, you will need to configure SSL Inbound decryption.

 

You will configure the Decryption rule to take affect before the NAT as the Firewall will be answering on behalf of the web server, 

 

Please check out the SSL decryption resource list to help answer any additional questions:
