I can connect to the pdm from the inside using a web access with, but when I try to connect to the pdm from the outside using the outside ip address, with either http or https, I am unable to get a connection.

How do I make this connection from the outside?



I have this problem too.

you need to implement following command on PIX-

http outside

This will allow anyone from outside to connect to PDM using outside interface IP address.

Alternatively, you can limit access to a specific host from outside, say using following command-

http outside

This will allow only from outside to connect to PDM using outside interface IP.

What I'd recommend doing is connecting to an IPSEC VPN connection from the outside to the pix. Then, once connected, open PDM or an SSH connection from there. Your configuration would still need to be in place to allow this. When you connect to your VPN you would receive an IP address from possibly a local DHCP pool. Say you had 6 usable IP's in your pool and you receive IP address for your connection. Your config would look like:

http outside


ssh outside

This would allow you to limit the source of your connection but still enabling you to connect from anywhere as long as you can VPN in.

Little better than allowing any address to connect in my opinion.
