Re: PIX firewall Problem Please Help

Please see nihal's post in the "Nat 0 Setup Help" thread. To initiate an imcp echo from the outside (linux box), to the inside (windows box), you need a static translation for the destination (windows box), and a permit statement in the acl applied to the outside interface. Perhaps some other device is doing nat to public addresses, since there aren't public ips in the outside of the pix. What is the linux box doing? What would you like the pix to translate the inside hosts to (they could keep the same ips as they pass through the pix)?
