I have a cisco pix 501 sitting on our network, everything is working as should and to be honest its a great little firewall.
Following a recent upgrade to some in house software we now require TCP port 2001 to be open, and im not 100% sure how to do this on the pix.
A bit of setup information with have a broadband connection which we have a netgear modem providing connection, this has a firewall of which port 2001 is open and is pointed to the cisco pix outside ip address. the pix is connected to the netgear modem which provides the pix with its ouside address via dhcp, the netgear is locked to only provide the pix and cant allocate any other dhcp addresses.
The pix is connected to our switch of which we have sbs 2008 connected to, the sbs server is the dhcp and dns server for the inertnal network, the firewall on the sbs server has port 2001 open, i have tested the netgear and server ports are open with a scanning tool and everything seems ok.
Now i have the hard bit of the pix ! i have an external address 80.176.xxx.xxx ( the netgear modem ip is 192.168.254.254) - the pix connects to the netgear and is given the ip of 192.168.254.2, so a forward rule is setup on the netgear to forward tcp port 2001 from 80.176.xxx.xxx to 192.168.254.2 (pix), the pix displays on boot the ouside address is set to 192.168.254.2 so that bits ok, how can i now let any comms from port 2001 through the pix to my server of 192.168.3.10, plus it needs to have access in both direction ie from and to on port 2001.
The port2001 needs to be open for remote access to wireless pda's, we have an application that speaks to and from pda's that are out on the road.
Im sure someone can help but as this is a live system i cant shut things down to play and learn.
Thanks in advance
