Pix Connectivity with 2 ISP Links

I am not able to establish IP connectivity between 2 LAN's. Pix with no outbounds restricts forwards traffic via ISP "A" and the return traffic comes in through a router on the LAN via ISP "B" I am able to ping and trace to the relivant servers but unless I replace PIX with router or ensure return traffic comes via ISP "A" I am unable to establish ip connectivity (eg Citrix session). Any ideas?

Re: Pix Connectivity with 2 ISP Links

You cannot loop your traffic around the PIX. The PIX is a stateful packet filter and requires the traffic flow both ways through it so it can inspect the traffic. You'll need to re-think your design a bit.

Much appreciated, this is a temporary solution as certain offices are still using older ISP's. Will have to wait for them to be upgraded.

Thank you for you comment.
