I've got a PIX 501 running ver 6.3(1) and for some reason when I try to ping the outside interface it only responds to ever other ping. And the main problem is that when I try to connect to the pix via PPTP VPN from W2K Pro machine, it gets to the authenticating user/pass screen but it seems to hang from and never authenticates and then eventually failes. Yet, when I go to where the pix is physically located, and plug into the outside interface directly, I get an instant response and full connection. Any ideas. thanks very much.
Re: PIX 501 ver 6.3(1) only answers every other ping.
This command block ping in outside inteface: icmp deny any outside
PIX versions 6.3 and later support PPTP pass through or PPTP over PAT using the PPTP fixup feature. This feature lets PPTP traffic traverse the PIX when configured for PAT. The PIX will perform stateful PPTP packet inspection in the process. To configure PPTP fixup on the PIX, refer to the section on PPTP configuration in Configuring Application Inspection (Fixup). The fixup protocol pptp 1723 command configures PPTP fixup.
