if alias command can rewite outside ip address ?

who can tell me alias command's function

topology like this:

inside lan ------pix---- outside internet

lan ip :

lan server ip :

outside ip :

outside server ip :

somebody tell me the alias can achieve functions like below:

rewrite the DNS packet's address with inside address

when my inside host want to access the inside server's web pages.

the inside host enter "" into the IE address bar.

and he will get the DNS answer of,that address is the inside server's nat outside address in fact.

if we don't use alias command,we will not get's web pages.

using alias,the will be rewrite to

my question is , if alias can only change the DNS's reply?

if alias can help us,when we type url "" directly from our IE address bar ?


Re: if alias command can rewite outside ip address ?

Alias would help you here if your server was on a dmz. But since the server is also on the inside alias will not help you. I assume this is pix version 6? Version 7 would allow you to hairpin on the inside interface and use destination nat. Something like this...

static (inside,inside) netmask
