Basics: PIX for dummies

Hello,

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. A linux consultant friend of mine has some PIX work he needs done. My experience is in routing and switching but, I would love to get some exposure to PIX.

I was asked if I could:

"install it, set up a DMZ"

I feel comfortable enough with the concepts of PIX firewalls but need to read a guide on how to set them up and establish a DMZ.

Would someone be kind enough to point me to a book or webpage that would help me to read about what I would need to do?

Thank You!

Have you tried the Cisco Quick Learning Module on the Cisco PIX/ASA page?

There are couple of good whitepapers that might help you:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/prod_configuration_examples_list.html

A good book that covers PIX/ASA and FWSM:

Cisco ASA and PIX Firewall Handbook

ISBN 1-58705-158-3

Here's a simple document that should help you to activate/configure PIX firewall without going into advanced features.

Hope that helps.
