in and out on the same interface

Unanswered Question

A PC uses the inside interface of the pix as default gateway. Therefore, the PC sends his remote packets to the pix. The pix has a static route to send the packets back via the inside interface to a next hop router. This does not work, because the pix always wants packets to flow between different interfaces.


Is there a workaround or should my pc definitly use another default gateway?


Thanks

Hi, your correct, the PIX will not send a packet out the same interface that it enters. My solution to this is either a router with secondary addresses or a layer three switch that defaults to the PIX inside interface. And of course the PC's default gateway is the router or the switch. So yes your machine should use a different gateway if your machine is destined for another LAN segment behind the PIX.


Hope this helps....
