Just a general question. Thanks to several of you, I was able to perform port redirection on one of my external IPs and redirect it to a different address and port on the inside.
However, since I did this, I find that I need to create static entries for all other ports used by this address as well. I never had to do this before.
In the past, I could create a static entry and redirect traffic from an external address to an internal address. If I wanted to open a port, I did it with the ACL. Now that I have port redirection for one of my addresses, it seems that I have to have a static entry for all other ports. Is this normal?
I also found that once I redirected the port, I can't even ping the outside address. I can access it using the ports I've opened, but not ping.
Sorry for my ignorance, but I would like to understand what the PIX is doing.
