PIX 501 connecting two internal networks

I am using a PIX 501 to protect our internal network (inside interface) from a seperate internal network (outside interface) consultants have access to this 192 network, but I need to connect to machines on the network using remote desktop and other similar apps.

My config looks like this

PIX Version 6.3(5)

interface ethernet0 auto

interface ethernet1 100full

nameif ethernet0 outside security0

nameif ethernet1 inside security100

hostname res6scadapix

From the inside network I try a remote desktop connection to, but it fails and I can't seem to get any syslog messages that would give me any help. Am I setting this up correctly? What would be the correct way to set this up?

I am on the network, and I want to connect to the network. I can not connect directly to the machines because I am using that IP range somewhere else on our network. Therefore, I am trying to add a translation so that from the network I can connect to a machine on the network by connecting to an ip address on the network. 10.5.x.x is inside, and 192.168.1.x is outside.

I'm a little confused. When you say:

>From the inside network I try a remote >desktop connection to, but it >fails

What are you calling the "inside" network?

Re: PIX 501 connecting two internal networks

the inside network was the 10 network. the outside network is the 192 network. I resolved the issue by changing my static map from

static (inside,outside) netmask


static (outside,inside) netmask

Now it works.


Re: PIX 501 connecting two internal networks

If you mean that you are coming from the 192.168.x.x side, then you have applied your access-list incorrectly.

>access-group acl_in in interface inside

should be:

access-group acl_in in interface outside

and the access list should be changed to:

access-list acl_in permit ip any host
