Hi, I have a Cisco pix 515e (version 7.1). I have a DSL line which is a Cisco 877 router. THE DSL router is working fine on the Internet, but I now want to add the 877 to the Cisco 515 Pix Outside interface and give a few users behind the firewall Internet access.

The 877's IP is and the Pix is

I have added on the Pix a static route of:

route outside 1

I also have on the Pix:

global (outside) 1 interface (what is this?)

nat (inside) 1

Plus I have added http rules for the inside network to the outside network on port 80/443.

What else should I do?

it sounds like the 877 is set up for NAT, is that correct?

if so, you are better off not NAT'ing as traffic passes through the PIX. Make sure nat-control is not enabled on the PIX, and remove all nat/global/static statements to make this happen.

Make sure the 877 has a route back to the internal network of the PIX.
