I am hoping some genius here will be able to shed some light on my problem.
I have a 3350 switch acting as my outside segment. Extrenal vendor routers etc connect to this. They target a privte ip 192.168.68.x my pix then has static's that do PAT. The pix I have works fine but if I connect my failover pix up inbound static's will not build.
What I have also tried is writing an identical configuration for an ASA 5520. When I do noting but outbound connections build. The default gateway is the outside interface eveyting looks fine. This all worked great when connected to a 3COM hub. The pix failover functionality worked great. I put the switch in evrything is configured fine with a single VLAN for simplicity, again the default gateway for management is the Pix outside interface address. I can reachj this fine!!
I have attached the PIX back up relaoded it and the connections all build fine.
I am at a total loss here to figure this one out. I am praying someone can offer a suggestion!
