Sorry, I was trying to be non-specific about it so that I'd get as wide a range of answers as possible.
My background is comms networking and we've recently been lumped with 2nd line support for outr firewalls. Now cyberguards, checkpoints, etc I'm fine with but the PIX is just a little greyer than most things. Configuring one in the first place I'm just ok with, but in reality troubleshooting connections, etc is what I guess I'm after.
Thanks for the thought but the 'show ?' command is one I know about. The problem with that is if you don't know what the command does, you have to go and look it up and the cisco answer is not necessarily the easiest to follow.
I was more after, I guess, an abc of where to start, what to look at first, how to find what I'm looking for, etc ....
As a direct example - today we had a call requesting us to prove that a NAT translation for a printer is working. There are 80 of these NATs and only one was questionable.
The rules were in place to allow the relevant port to be open and the NAT was in place ... but what next? I know what I did, but I'm positive there must be a better method or way of approaching it.
Perhaps I'm phrasing my request wrong, but I'd really like a "How to troubleshoot pixes 101" and preferably from the CLI but I'll take the pdm info as well.
