Working with a Pix 535 ver 6.3(5)
The pix is the default gateway for the entire subnet 192.168.160.0 255.255.240.0.
I have since added a VMware environment that I have put into the 172.17.0.0 space for a number of reasons. The VMware subnet is accessible via 192.168.162.87 (I am doing the layer 3 switching & inter VLAN routing on a switch at this address).
I can get everything to work by adding a static route in the PCs I am working on, but I want to accomplish this in the pix.
[Pix: 192.168.160.1 (inside)]---->[Cisco 6500]--->[VMware Switch: 192.168.162.87]----->172.17.0.0/24 network.
Can I do something like this?
Ip address VMware 172.17.0.1 255.255.255.0
Static (inside, VMware) 192.168.160.1 172.17.0.1 255.255.255.255
Route VMware 172.17.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.162.87 1
edit: I should mention that the VMnetwork is not directly connected.
