PIX 515E, multiple DMZ's, and videotape

i looked through the various topics for something similar and didn't find anything. if this is already posted, please accept my apologies.

anyway, i have a pix515e, running ver 6.1(2). it has 6 interfaces, internal, external, and 4 DMZs (intf1, intf2, intf3, and intf4). my question is this:

say i have a webserver on dmz1. this dmz lives in a local subnet and is assigned the address of currently, the PIX routes packets appropriately both to the outside and the inside as necessary. it needs to be accessible from both the outside as well as the inside. i have a PAT address assigned on the dmz with:

global (intf1) 1

nat (inside) 1

that allows any user on the 'inside' interface to be dynamically assigned an address of on the dmz to access the webserver.

i have also setup a static mapping to the outside with the commands:

static (intf1,outside) netmask

conduit permit tcp host eq www any

that allows any user on the 'outside' interface to access the machine on port 80.

i later find that i need to map a netbios share from a specific machine on the 'inside' interface to update webserver data. i create a new entry:

static (inside, intf1) netmask

i find that if i remove the nat/global statements, this works, but that's not an option. as it is, i get a 'the network path was not found' error.

i'm stuck. what am i doing wrong??

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: PIX 515E, multiple DMZ's, and videotape

Windows networking hates nat.

You will want to have no natting between the two hosts at all. This will most likely require you having a nat 0 access-list command for the higher security int in question (inside). The access lists should classify traffic between the subnets, or just these two hosts.

Allowing netbios sharing between these segments is pretty risky. I would try to find another file transfer method.
