PIX 501 configuration with Cable modem

Answered Question
Aug 28th, 2008

How do you configure the outside interface to receive its IP address from a dhcp server? (in this case, from a cable modem)

I have a 501 PIX running 6.3.5

Also, after you configure the outside interface for dhcp, how do yu configure the route so everyone on the inside can see the internet?

I have this problem too.

Version 6.x:

ip address outside dhcp setroute

Remove any default gateways from your config.


int eth0/x

ip address dhcp setroute
