Can PIX act as DHCP Client then NAT to internal ?

I have a client that has a cable modem connection and was provided with up to 5 dhcp addresses. I need to NAT them to static internal machines and was also hoping to get them secured with a firewall and was wondering if a PIX firewall would provide this ability. If not does anyone know of a firewall that can take DHCP addresses and NAT them to internal devices.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks,

Jason

Re: Can PIX act as DHCP Client then NAT to internal ?

Jason,

The PIX can do that.

I would suggest using one address for the PIX outside interface. Use 3 other addreeses to create a NAT pool (the last one should be used for NAT overload or PAT).

Save one of those 5 IP addresses for testing (i.e. to connect a PC to the connection in front of the firewall).

Liberty for All,

Brian
