core routers connected via vlan 15 to a pix device. everytime a route is specified i used the next hop as vlan 15 ( the interface) rather than the ip address of the PIX device. is this a security issue and would it be a issue with proxy-arp?

PIX performs the routing process based on the directly connected routes, static routes and OSPF - available in the latest PIX 6.3 version.

Static routes are directly linked to the outbound interface that connects to the next hope router. This adds more extra security.



//Example: default route is allowed only through the outside interface.
