best practices on ip addressing

hi all,

just curious if there is a best practice for the naming of the inside int on a pix device. is there any harm in having it be addressed with an address from the vlan management pool?

thanks,

R

Re: best practices on ip addressing

Hi,

It's probably safest to named the inside interface 'inside' but it does not matter either way. Any sufficiently descriptive name should be good enough.

As for the IP, it can be any internal IP address from the subnet assigned to the LAN segment on which the PIX inside interface sits. It would typically be a private IP address.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Re: best practices on ip addressing

Hi,

To be frank there is no hard and fast rule to name a inside int of ur pix or any network device interface in ur network. Its just for the easy to refer at a latter stage. And for the second part of ur question regarding IP addressing to the internal interface in ur PiX its recommended that u assign any IP address from ur local pool from the same subnet ur PIX is connected to. Generally ur PIX sud have been connected to ur DMZ network. So u can assign any IP from ur DMZ V-Lan(Subnet).

Hope this helps u out ..
