I have two problems with my newly bought PIX 501 (Newbie).
1. How do a forward an outside port to an inside IP and port? eg. outside IP is 192.168.2.105 and the IP that i want to receive traffic on is 192.168.1.2 and the port is 10000 TCP, how to do this, been fighting for 4 days now :-) PLEASSSEEEE take me out of my misery :-)
2. Tha original version of the PIX software was 6.1, and PDM was very low, i found out that getting upgrades for this PIX would take some time because i had to register with Cisco for some speciel account. Now, i don't know if this would have cost me or not, and i don't care, i am willing to pay (not to much :-) ), but i found out that my previous office had an upgrade CD lying, and i upgraded the PIX to the versions mentioned in the title, so how is it i cant connect to the PDM via explorer? Do i need ned keys? Please help me, i am turning very grey here.
Yes, you are being clear. The problem is you cannot U-turn/hairpin on a pix 501. Therefore you must use another method if you want to hit your internal webserver with a domain name which resolves to a public ip.
DNS doctoring is one option I posted above but this does not work with port translation. See the link I referenced above. Second option is to use an internal dns server which resolves your website to its private address. Another option would be to edit your machines hosts file to include yourwebsite.com and it's internal private ip address.
