I currently have 1 x static NAT and 4 x PAT configured on my PIX 515E firewall running v6.3(4). The PAT PoolID are numbered 1 (int PAT), 6, 8 and 7. I'm wondering if I create another PoolID adn give it a number say 3, will the firewall process poolID#3 first before moving on to the other pool. My new pool is to permit any inside IP address 10.0.0.0/8 to an outside address of 203.110.146.x. If this pool is to be process first then it might be a better idea to give assign PoolID#99 instead. I require this because the other pools are being used at the moment and if this pool takes precedence then I'm going to be in trouble with my access rules.
Hope this make sense. Thanks for your comments.
