Internal Users Accessing Public IP of Internal Server

Unanswered Question

The setup is a bit odd, but here it is:

I have a server that is inside my network (not in a dmz), that is accessible from the Internet via pix.

I would like users internally to access the Public IP address of this server.

They'd basically hit the Pix and hairpin back to the IP of the server internally.

Is this doable.

Running 6.3 code.

What combo of acls and statics etc. would be needed?

any help is help at this point.

Unfortunately pix v6.x code does not support hairpinning so you will not be able to "bounce" traffic off the inside inteface.

What pix do you have - if it is Pix515E or above then you could look to upgrade to v7.x code which does support hairpinning although the 515E model may need more memory.
