PIX 501 and Internet Access

Unanswered Question

My network is very simple, like this: A DSL Modem is connected to a Cisco PIX 501 firewall/router, and a computer is connected to this firewall.

Now this PIX 501 box has two interfaces: Inside ( and the netwroked PC ( The outside interface is set to DHCP to be dynamically assigned an IP by the ISP's DNS server (

My networked PC (running Windows XP) is configured with an static IP (, default Gateway ( which is the PIX 501), and the DNS IP ( which is the ISP's DNS Server).

But I can NOT access the internet. I can Ping (the inside interface) but not the outside (

What am I missing and what should I do?



I have this problem too.

First off, the command is SH RUN.

Second, if you remove the PIX from the equation can you connect to the internet?

Anyway, please post the config.
