'global address overlaps with mask'

Unanswered Question

static (inside,outside) <global ip> <local ip> netmask <local ip netmask>

When I enter the above in my pix 501 (mind that whats in the <> is an ip address) I get an error message that says 'global address overlaps with mask'

Any ideas?

You're translating your whole inside network. Basically the 'netmask' relates to the global IP AND the local IP. For example, to translate 32 outside addresses to 32 inside addresses, use netmask

If you're translating one outside address:

static (inside,outside) netmask

You can also leave off the whole netmask text if it's one host, the PIX will fill that in automatically.

WARNING: mapped-address conflict with existing static

  TCP ISP2: to inside: netmask

ERROR: unable to reserve port 80 for static PAT

this does not seem to work
