Cannot ping inside i/f from pix iteslf & cannot tftp from server to Pix
We have Pix 525 (in a test lab non prod). I am trying to tftp a new OS image (6.3.5). It is currently running 6.3.3. to do this I am in monitor mode on the Pix (You have to be in monitor mode to do this). I can ping my laptop FROM the firewall (which is connected to the inside i/f). I CANNOT ping the inside i/face from the Pix itself and I cannot ping the inside firewal i/f from the laptop. All netmasks are correct. The tftp process also fails (which I assume is due to the weirdness about not being able to ping the inside firewall interface from the Pix itself. Any guidance welcomed as I am flumoxed. Theres loads of memory. The cable is ok as it pings ok (albeit in one direction) - thanks email@example.com
Re: Cannot ping inside i/f from pix iteslf & cannot tftp from se
I have not worked with 525 models but why do you need to be in monitor mode to upgrade code. You can upgrade the code from PIX normal mode by simply configuring your laptop-tftp server in same subnet as your PIX inside interface use a hub or switch to connect both.
PIX#copy tftp flash:image
pix#copy tftp flash:pdm
the reboot the pix..
now if you are in monitor mode, don't need to specify gateway in laptop tctip settings if both in same network.
