PIX 501 Port Forward

Hello all,

I am having a problem with port forwarding on my 501. This is what I have entered:

static (inside,outside) tcp interface https 172.17.x.x https netmask 0 0

access-list acl_outside permit tcp any interface outside eq https

access-group acl_outside in interface outside

I am running 6.3(5)

The firewall is basically factory defaults, I have configured 1 ezvpn and is essentially the only use of this firewall, so I don't think that will cause a problem, but who knows.

Here is my running config.

PIX501# show run

Re: PIX 501 Port Forward

The configuration is good. This is not the problem.

1.) Has your webserver the PIX IP as default gateway ?

2.) what do you see in the logs when you try to connect from the outside.

# shows log from the PIX buffer

show log

# enables logging to the buffer

logg on

logg buff info

3.) Have you cleared the translation table after changing the static ?

clear xlate

Note that this will reset all connections.
