PIX 501 problems

Trying to install a 501 on a small business network that is hosted by another company. They currently have it set up with 172.17.xxx.xxx for their internal LAN and have it routed(?) to be 216.201.xxx.xxx on the outside.

I set the inside address to the LAN gateway and the outside interface to the public router IP? correct?

randy

the inside IP shall be the LAN PCs gateway and if u have a router after the outside interface , the interface ip of the router connecting to your outside interface will be your Next Hop address, for static routing.

Re: PIX 501 problems

How do I add the DNS servers to the equation. it looks like it either cannot find them or cannot get them through the firewall ??

access-list acl_inside permit udp any any eq 53

where acl_inside is the access list on the LAN side of the pix.

Re: PIX 501 problems

Well, i am TOTALLY clueless now. Nothing is working right, so I must be doing something terribly wrong.

I DO NOT have access to the router configurations upstream of me, or of the router within our LAN, all I have is a sheet of paper with this info.....

Local Area Network IP 172.17.2.0 255.255.255.0

Ethernet/Gatway IP 172.17.2.1

Usable IP range 172.17.2.2-172.17.2.254

Re: PIX 501 problems

I see 1 major problem. The PIX outside interface is 216.201.xxx.33 and you have a default route of "route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 216.201.xxx.33 1". This will not work because it is the same interface of the PIX. The default route should point to the device connected on the other end of the outside interface of the PIX, for example the router.

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 216.201.xxx.32 1 should be the PIX's default route to its next hop.

You don't need the dhcpd dns 66.196.216.10

And these statements are basically opening up this firewall:

access-list acl permit udp any any eq domain

access-list acl permit tcp any any

access-list acl permit ip any any

access-group acl in interface inside

This is allowed as soon as you apply the basic commands.. NAT, GLOBAL etc...

conduit permit tcp any any

conduit permit ip any any

These are opening up the pix to the world.

The default configuration of the PIX firewall is NOTHING IN AND NOTHING OUT. You allow inside connections thru the PIX with the NAT, GLOBAL, IP Adderss, Interface Auto etc... But the permit statements you have is allowing all IP all TCP traffic from the outside to the inside networks.

let me know if this helps. I'll watch for your reply.

Re: PIX 501 problems

Should the PIX's outside interface be THE SAME AS the router ip which the PIX is connected to ????

Re: PIX 501 problems

Hi Randy,

Please check the attached document. I have setup the config with your provided IP addresses.

Hope this sorts out your problem, I also included on the config SMTP mail access as well, thats if you require it.

Let me know how you get on -

Re: PIX 501 problems

We got it working! Thanks. We also had to have the ISP provider remove NAT from the router.
