Cannot ping interfaces on PIX

I can ping the local interface, but not the other two interfaces (Inside cannot ping DMZ, etc). Machines in each respective area cannot ping machines in any other area either.

Here is my config, any help would be appreciated (config has non-relevant items removes):

Re: Cannot ping interfaces on PIX

hi,

According to this config you should be able to ping hosts on the DMZ and the internet from the inside. But for some reason, you will never be able be able the DMZ or outside interface of pix from the inside. or the other way round.

Re: Cannot ping interfaces on PIX

You cannot ping from the inside the PIX interface on the DMZ, the PIX does not allow that.

1.) You can ping, if you have configured the ICMP command, from the inside host the inside interface. Or from the DMZ the dmz interface.

2.) If you have configured the access-list correctly then you can ping a host on the DMZ from the inside host.

3.) You should be able to ping everything from the PIX itself.

sincerely

Re: Cannot ping interfaces on PIX

Yet it does not.

When I ping from the Inside to the DMZ, the ping trace shows the requests and translation happening but does not show any replies.

When I ping from the DMZ to the Inside, the ping trace shows requests, translations, and replies, but the PC shows no reply (100% failure).

Hi,

First make sure that the hosts definately respond to pings (ping them from the local lan).

If they do, there is only one explanation: a slight pix mulfunction, so to say. I had a simmilar problem once. I configured everything correctly but still it didn't work. After a reboot it worked fine. but it did start to work. From what you are saying it doesn't work for a longer time and that is strange :)

Try to remove and reapply the ACL, reboot etc.

In software 7.0 and higher you can enable icmp inspection which would allow to pings to come back event without the access-list.

Good luck
