520 4.4 PAT w/1 static address?

I am trying to implement a PIX 520 in a small environment. The ISP provides a DSL with a single static IP address.

1) Is there a way to do PAT using the same IP address for the outside interface and the address for the global statement (source IP address for outgoing packets)?

2) Is the global statement even necessary in this scenario?


ip address inside

ip address outside

nat 1 0

global (outside) 1

(the global statement produces an error that it overlaps the outside interface address)

Thanks in advance.

nat (inside) 1

global (outside) 1 interface

the above nat statement would nat every hosts inside, u may want to modify that.

Re: 520 4.4 PAT w/1 static address?

Thanks, Jackko.

Problem is that the "interface" parameter doesn't seem to be valid on older OSs. I'm running 4.4.

My plan was to upgrade to 5.1 (as far as I can go without a new--expensive--flash card)) but I didn't see any OS below 5.2 on the PIX software center.

Does anyone know if the command:

global (outside) 1 interface

is supported in 5.1?
