BGP Peer thru PIX 515

Unanswered Question
Mar 1st, 2007


I'm trying to create an iBGP peer between the 4506 and 3800. Between them is a PIX firewall. I'm wondering why the PIX won't let port 179 pass thru the inside interface but nothing is wrong with the outside interface. First, I tried to use this ACL.

access-list 1 permit tcp host cat4500 host c3800 eq bgp

The access-list above didn't work. When I issue show access-list 1, I can see that the hit counter does not increment. But when I changed it to

access-list 1 permit ip host cat4500 host 3800 everthing worked fine.

But for the access-list on the outside interface, nothing is wrong. All I permited is the BGP protocol.

Please help. Thanks.

I have this problem too.
