Re: how to use established command in pix

Established is not really used in the PIX because the PIX is a Stateful Firewall.

This means that if a packet is allowed for example from the Internet to the DMZ Web Server then the returning traffic is allowed. You do not need to configure the returning traffic in the Access-List.

A stateful firewall keeps a session table of all connection.

The established command in ACL is used on routers which does not have a stateful connection table.
