I have a Pix 501 that is connected on the e0 interface to a Cisco 2950 switch. Been having some problems getting out with it from the internal network and when I do a show interface command on e0 it shows interface is up, line protocol is down.
I've tried different cables to see if that was the problem but that doesn't help. It's a straight through cable connecting the two. I checked the LED's for status and power is on, inside connection has a solid link light. Outside connection blinks once in a while but then goes out. It is out more then blinking. If I plug the cable from the 2950 into any of the 1-4 ports on the back, I have solid lights. I also should say that the light on the 2950 is solid as well.
Could I have a bad port on the Pix? Or could there be something between the Pix and the 2950 that's not correct? Fairly new to the Pix, so any help would be appreciated.
