Very General PIX config

I'm having problems w/ a Pix that isn't able to be ping'ed. If I ping from the PIX(515) to the device it isn't a problem but when I try to originate the ping from my laptop I'm having problems. I'm trying to setup a very simple firewall that allows all traffic to come through the device in both directions, then I want to increase security once the basic functionality is there. So what is the best way to go ahead and do this? I don't have my book yet and the online documentation isn't great. Thanks.

Re: Very General PIX config

PIX Initial Configuration:-

pixfirewall(config)# hostname PIX1

PIX1(config)# enable password enable-password-here

PIX1(config)# passwd telnet-password-here

PIX1(config )# write mem

Interface Security:-

PIX1(config )# nameif ethernet0 outside sec0

PIX1(config )# nameif ethernet1 inside sec100

Interface Speed:-

PIX1(config )# interface ethernet0 100full

PIX1(config )# interface ethernet1 100full

IP Address Config:-

PIX1(config)#ip address inside

PIX1(config)#ip address outside

PIX1(confi)#ssh inside

PIX1(config)#global (outside) 1 netmask

PIX1(config)#nat (inside) 1 0 0

PIX1(config)#access-list acl-per permit ip any any

PIX1(config)#access-group acl-per in interface outside

PIX1(config)#access-group acl-per in interface inside

PIX1(config)#route inside 1

PIX1(config)#route outside 0 0 1


Connwect your laptop to the inside interface. Assign IP address to your laptop of inside subnet.

It should work.

Hope That Helps.
