I have configure the PIX501 to have the following:

Inside Int:

Outside Int:

From the PIX console, I am able to ping to outside IP ( external IP such as goolgle ..etc ) and I am able to ping to the server connected to one of the server which is having IP. However, from the server side, I am not able to ping out to any of the host reside externally such as google..etc

Need you guys help to shade some lights.

Can you post the config ( removing the sensitive details, public ip etc) here for us the check.

We would like to check the nat/global/acl/route configurations.

Hi .. you need to create a PAT for going out

nat (inside) 1 access-list OUTbound

global (outside) 1 interface

access-list OUTbound permit icmp any any <- allows ICMP

access-list OUTbound permit IP any any <- allows all

I hope it helps .. please rate if it does !!!

thanks but I believe there's some routing issue.

pix501(config)# sh route

outside 1 OTHER static

inside 1 CONNECT static

outside 1 CONNECT static

My Linux server routing table:

[[email protected] ~]# route -n

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 eth1 U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 eth1 UG 0 0 0 eth0
