PIX 515E config help

I am a new user and I am trying to configure a PIX 515e Ver 6.3(3). How do I give my inside users access to my webfarm which is on dmz1. I am able to access the inside and dzm1 test websites from the outside. I can not access the dmz1 websites from the inside. Here is my current config:

Re: PIX 515E config help

with pix v6.x, nat/global or static is a must do before the pix will start forwarding packet between two interfaces.

the current static statements don't cover the translation between inside and dmz. since the traffic between pix inside net and dmz is private, i suggest you to configure no-nat between the two.

e.g.

static (inside,dmz1) 10.10.10.0 10.10.10.0 netmask 255.255.255.0

clear xlate

with the sample above, pix inside host should be able to access the dmz webserver by pointing to the dmz webserver private ip.

if you prefer the pix inside host to access the dmz webserver by name, then "alias" command needs to be applied.

e.g.

alias (inside) 13.13.13.3 12.12.12.17 255.255.255.255

the need of the command "alias" is due to the fact that when pix inside host attempts to access the dmz webserver by name, the public dns will point to the dmz webserver public ip. now, since the static created for dmz webserver is directional i.e. public ip will only be accessible from the outside, not the pix inside net. thus the "alias" command will enable the pix to manipulate the dns response, and point the name to the dmz webserver private ip for the pix inside host.

See the following weblink for an example of what you are trying to do:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a0080094aee.shtml

You will need to use the alias command.

Hope that helps.

Re: PIX 515E config help

Your advice worked for my lab. When I changed the IP addresses to match the current Symantec firewall and replaced it on the network, it did not work. I can ping the inside websites, dmz1 websites and the outside router from the PIX. When I try to access a web page from the inside to dmz1 or outside to inside, I get “This page can not be displayed”. I read an article that suggested clearing arp on the outside router and the inside switch and that did not work either. Here is a copy of the config that worked in the lab.

Again, all that was done to the above config was changing the IP addresses to match the current firewall config.

Any ideas?

Thanks…
