WAN Router won't Ping or connect to Internet PIX box

I have a T1-WAN offsite connected via a 2500 router to my main router 2611 home. I also have a PIX for Internet access on the home network. When comming thru the 2500 offsite I can't see the PIX. I can't even ping the PIX even from inside the 2500. I can access the internet thru my Proxy server fine from offsite thru 2500.

Re: WAN Router won't Ping or connect to Internet PIX box

Assuming that there is a valid route from the 2500 to the PIX, check the PIX configuration to see if telnet access to it is allowed from 2500 ip address or subnet. Also, by default, the PIX will not pass or reply to ICMP echo requests (ping) unless it is explicitely configured to do so.

Hope that helped,

Hi,

By default, the pix denies any ICMP traffic. Try adding the following statement on the PIX firewall

conduit permit icmp any any

Thanks,
