Interesting Scenario.. PIX 515E

Say you have a Boston Office, a WAN office to New York and Internet Access through Boston that New York DOES NOT use. I have one 515E and the Boston office uses that as their Internet firewall, and New York connecting into Boston via a WAN link. Can I use the 515E to be the firewall for both connections? Any sample configs/ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Interesting Scenario.. PIX 515E

I will assumed that you want the New York WAN to use the PIX firewall. This is possible by using a separate DMZ on the firewall. What do you need to do is plug the ethernet port of the WAN router straight to the PIX DMZ port instead of plugging it into the switch inside your LAN in Boston. It is also assumed that NY is the only WAn connection you have, otherwise you might need another ethernet port on your WAN router and routed the traffic there or you can use VLAN.
