My knowledge is very basic with Cisco Pix Firewall. We are behind a PIX firewall with PIX version 6.3 and recently we have not been able to access a specific website from our Workstations (all the other sites are fine). As far as I know Workstations use a PAT Global Address, but we have a Server which is also behind the PIX and has a different IP assigned in the PIX config and we can browse the site from the server.
From the workstations the connection to the site just times out, from the server we have no problems. It isn´t a DNS problem and according to the people from the site we are not banned. Like I said my knowledge is basic and I was wondering if this is could be related to the PIX and figure out a possible solution.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the update. I've had cases where that is the case - the end-server does some sort of DNS record lookup or Blacklist lookup to verify the requesting IP. I've also seen issues where ISPs have inadvertently, unintentionally misrouted traffic back to (or rather, away from) the source or destination.
I'm glad that you were able to find a viable workaround. In either case, please be sure to mark this post as 'Answered' so others can also benefit from the troubleshooting steps that you took in resolving this issue.
