IPX traffic thru PIX firewall

  • Cisco Employee,

The PIX is a IP firewall. That means that you can't pass Novell IPX traffic through the PIX unless it is encapsulated in IP. You can do that using a GRE tunnel but you'd need to have routers on each segment create the tunnels and encapsulate and send / receive the traffic.


Another solution might be to add another network interface to the Novell server and attach it to an internal network. Just make sure that routing is disabled on the Novell server.

mutihoming servers to an inside and an outside (DMZ) network is a bad idea.


you may want to consider upgrading your netware servers to netware 5; which can use IP.

Greetings all,


The way we fixed this problem on our network was to deploy Novell's Compatibility mode servers. We placed one on the outside nterface, another on the inside interface. The servers did the IPX/IP conversions. Let me know if you need more info.


HTH,
