Could any of you, supposed you are behind a PIX 7.0 firewall, try to access this website :

When I'm behind the PIX 7.0, I get a "Error 502 - Server unexpectedly closed connection. " but if I'm directly connected to the company network, I can easily access this website without any problem...

Thanks for your help,

Are you allowing all TCP traffic out? Your url is going out port 8000. Not the normal port 80 for web traffic.

Pix 7 can also interfere with certain Java, there are some other posts on this forum about that....

There's no java on this webpage... Connecting to this server on other web applications on other ports pops the same problem up.

I think there may be something to change in TCP inspection even if I did not activate HTTP inspection :\

Yes of course all traffic out is allowed. Access-lists are all right :)

just wondering which version is the pix running. if not running v7.0.4, then it's worth to upgrade to it.

i had couple issues with v7.0.2, which doesn't allow pinging the internet or browsing. the issue was resolved with v7.0.4.

odd. opens when my notebook is connected to pix501 v.6.3 doesn't open when my notebook is connected to asa v7.0.4.

i was thinking that port 8000 needs to be added as the http inspection. but then the odd thing is: opens when my notebook is connected to pix515e v7.0.4.

both pix515e and asa run the same os, as well as the default inspection rules on http.

Oh là là... I'll have a look at the http inspection but right now, I'm a bit confused about all this stuff :\

I already know this link. I trie out to create a mss-exceeded tcp-map but this does not work.

I don't really know where it can come from :\
