Workstation connecting to NAT address on the same subnet

Unanswered Question
Dec 17th, 2007

I was configuring a workstation in the DMZ to FTP to a host on the inside of the firewall. The workstation is on the same subnet as the NAT address of the host. When attempting to FTP to the NAT host, I never see the FTP connection attempt in the syslog. My question is. If the workstation and the NAT addresses are in the same subnet will the PIX forward the request on the host or ignore the request. If I attempt to FTP to the real address of the host, the connection is successful.

I have this problem too.

Hi Robert

Please explain "If the workstation and the NAT addresses are in the same subnet". With examples including IPs if possible

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp host 192.168.1.81 host 192.168.1.78 eq ftp

The workstation (192.168.1.181) is in the DMZ (outside)and the host (192.168.1.178) is on the inside of the Firewall with a NAT.
