Cisco PIX 501 Firewall Config

Hi,

I know this is an old firewall but its just a simple firewall I need, my question is this.

I am not getting any internet with my current config, see below:

What am I missing, if I try and ping 8.8.8.8 it times out, any suggestions?

Re: Cisco PIX 501 Firewall Config

There are a couple of things wrong with that setup:

1) I don't remember the old syntax exactly but I think your Ethernet0 is shutdown.

2) Your NAT is broken. Add the following line:

global (outside) 101 interface

3) Your ACL doesn't allow the needed traffic. Change it the following way:

access-list INSIDE-IN permit udp any any eq 53

access-list INSIDE-IN permit tcp any any eq 80

access-list INSIDE-IN permit tcp any any eq 21

access-list INSIDE-IN permit icmp any any echo

access-group INSIDE-IN in interface inside

With that ACL you can make DNS, HTTP, FTP and also ping to the outside. If you need more, just add more lines with the needed ports.

4) Source-quench is nothing that should be allowed anywhere:

no access-list allow_ping permit icmp any any source-quench

and last but not least:

5) The PIX 501 is unsupported since many years. Devices like that shouldn't be connected to the internet any more ...

Regards to point 5 where you say devices like this shouldnt be used, I know its an unsupported device but what other reasons should I not be using it, its a good\simple firewall - i'd rather use this than say...........a horrible netgear!

Re: Cisco PIX 501 Firewall Config

For the last point you just should keep in mind, that the software probably has a couple of security-related bugs that won't get fixed any more. For your very simplistic firewall they are perhaps not relevant, but just don't forget it when you try to do more with it.

For your PERMIT-OUT ACL, you don't need tcp, udp and icmp if you allow IP. IP includes all these protocols. The PERMIT-IN ACL is not really needed in your scenario as traffic from a lower security level to a higher level is denied by default.
