PIX 506e Basic VPN, SMTP, POP3 configuration

Hi Everybody. I am a newbie at Cisco appliances and I am trying to configure our new PIX for Remote Vpn, smtp, and POP3 access. Could you spare a light on these? Here is the current configuration:

At this point I cannot VPN into it, and I have only one public IP address coming in. Please advice.


Re: PIX 506e Basic VPN, SMTP, POP3 configuration

assuming is the server for smtp and pop3, then a proper static statement and inbound acls are needed.


static (inside,outside) tcp interface eq 25 eq 25 netmask

static (inside,outside) tcp interface eq 110 eq 110 netmask

access-list inbound permit tcp interface outside eq 25

access-list inbound permit tcp interface outside eq 110

access-group inbound in interface outside
