I have a server on my internal network running Websense. For sake of discussion, the IP is

Workstations on DMZ1, off of my PIX 535, are in the


Below is what I have configured on my PIX

url-server (inside) vendor websense host timeout 30 protocol TCP version 4 connections 5

filter url 80

It doesn't work. Using the cli utilities for Websense, on the server, the server is not receiving any requests from the DMZ workstations. I get 'page cannot be displayed' when attempting to surf the internet.

When I remove the two commands from the PIX, internet surfing works just fine.

Do I need to add a static command to the PIX for this communication with Websense to take place???

Thank you.

I have this problem too.
