Pix bridge setup

Hi Guys,

I have a netgear router set up in bridge mode. Now I want to connect the pix to it. What I want is for the pix to get the external ip address.

Do I need to put that wan address on the pix outside interface or shall i set it to obtain it via dhcp.

"ip address outside dhcp setroute"

Tks

Re: Pix bridge setup

If you normally get the IP from your ISP via DHCP, that is how you should set your PIX up too.

Re: Pix bridge setup

If your ISP uses pppoe to give you the address.. ie, you need to authenticate onto their network, then you may need to add something like the following:

vpdn group GRP_NAME request dialout pppoe

vpdn group GRP_NAME localname username@isp

vpdn group GRP_NAME ppp authentication chap

vpdn username username@isp password MY_PASSWORD

ip address outside pppoe setroute

Of course, if the ISP uses DHCP, ignore this posting :)
