I don't know if this is possible, would appreciate any insight.

I have a host on my perimeter interface (DMZ) Natted to outside with a public IP address. I want to access this host on the DMZ using its Natted public IP address (on the outside interface). So far i have no success.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, im trying to access the dmz host via its natted ip on the outside (public IP).

I stand corrected - but as far as I am aware this is not possible.

Going from the inside - to the outside, back into the outside into the DMZ. From the DMZ to the outside, back into the outside into the inside.....does this cover it?

I just cannot see how that is possible - or even why you would want to do it?

Hi Andrew,

Glad that you get out of your way to test this on your lab.

One question though, isn't it the syntax for static goes this way:

Static (high_security_int,low_security_int) low_ip high_ip netmask ???

Where INSIDE is always the highest security interface, etc. So just wondering if the command syntax is right.

Will have to test this as well.
