default route

I have a 3750 switch I am using as a router.this is connected to a 6509 switch and I am running ospf between them. I have checkpoint firewall connected to the 6509.this is where everyone on the network gets internet from. I have installed cisco Pix which I have connected to the ISP and terminated it on one of the ports on the 3750 which. I have a static route to this PIX on the 3750 switch for a network( that is on the switch.

A client on the network is able to ping the PIX which is what I desire but when I do a trace from this client to the PIX,it take the path to the checkpoint via the core ( which is known through ospf.I need to have the clients on the network go to the internet through the PIX ( should I do?

What am I missing here?

The configuration of my 3750 is as attached.

Re: default route

Hello there,

The default route is pointing towards the (cost of 1). It should be pointing to the or the interface id of the 3750 that connects to the pix firewall (cost of 0).

That should fix the issue. Let me know if this helps.
