Pix 501 and using PHP includes with domain name

Unanswered Question
Mar 8th, 2010


I'm really new to using a firewall, and need some help.

I have a leased PIX 501.

When I had this added to my server, my PHP  includes on my website that use the URL <?php include ('http://www.mydomain.com/footer.php');?>

those files show up as not found.

I really don't have the option to make the paths relative, do you have any ideas? My support told me that I can add some rules to the firewall and that should cure this problem.

You may need to enable DNS doctoring to get this working properly. If you're using static NAT translations you'll need to remove the NAT entry and re-enter it with 'dns' tacked on at the end.


static (inside,outside) netmask


static (inside,outside) netmask dns

After re-entering the entry you may need to clear the xlate as well.
Good luck!
