Quick Question, multiple IP addresses on PIX 506

Unanswered Question
Oct 1st, 2008

Have a really simple question I know it is possible to put multiple IPs' on the outside interface of the PIX, will the standard

ip address outside XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX XXX.XXX.XXX

command work? And if I use that will it erase the ip address I already have assigned to it? I need it for an internal webserver.

I have this problem too.

Yes it would overwrite it. If you want to represent the internal webserver on a different public IP than the outside interface IP you just use a static statement ie.

static (inside,outside) netmask

You don't have to assign this public IP to an actual interface.

Ok, I setup the static statement, but I don't think it worked because I tried to ping that public IP and I got nothing. Do I need to add an access-list to allowing traffic to it?

Sorry, yes you do. Once you have the static setup then you need to allow whatever ports you want to that public IP. This access-list needs applying to the outside interface.
