PIX 515E - Slow Download.

Unanswered Question

We have PIX 515E firewall. Pix Ver. 8.0(2), ASDM Ver. 6.0(3). Firewall Mode: Routed.

The problem is that when i click on any download from PC behind PIX, the download starts and hangs after like 25%. It becomes very slow/does not show any progress.

I connected a PC directly (not through PIX) on public ip and there are no problems with downloads.

I have tried with different ACL settings. I gave full "IP-Service Group", pemitted but same problems.

Can anyone guide please.

Thanks in advance.

Did you checked speed and duplex mode on the interface behind the PIX?

Best regards.

Thanks for reply,

The outside interface of PIX is as-

Auto-Duplex(Full-duplex), Auto-Speed(100 Mbps)

The internet router interface to which it connects is as-

Full-duplex, 100Mb/s, 100BaseTX/FX

Do i need to change the PIX outside from Auto to manual settings ?

Please guide. Thanks again.
