PIX-Internet Problem

Hi ,

My pix is up and internet is fine , but i need only One IP addesss x.x.x.1 to access internet rest other denied, and x.x.x.1 will have ISA server from where i will permit particular users to browse internet , Am using NAT/PAT on PIX , what will be my access-list , coz if i remove from NAT from PIX this will stop the whole internet and email access... Can any one let me know this

i tried this but no success

access-list 111 permit tcp 10.x.x.1 any eq www

access-group 111 in interface inside


Re: PIX-Internet Problem

That access list is probably blocking the ISA server from being able to make UDP based DNS requests to resolve hostnames to IP addresses. Assuming your dns servers are outside of the PIX, adding this line should allow dns to work

access-list 111 permit udp 10.x.x.1 any eq dns


Re: PIX-Internet Problem

I presume what you are saying is that you want all internet connections to go via your ISA server, correct? If so then do the following:

access-list permit tcp host any eq www

access-list deny tcp any any eq www

access-list permit ip any any

access-group in interface inside

Now makesure to save with cmd write memory and also clear translations with cmd clear xlate.

Write you access-list on a notepad first (as above) and then issue a no access-list as the first line, this way when you paste back onto the PIX you'll get a clean config for the access-list mentioned i.e.

In Config mode on PIX:

no access-list

access-list permit tcp host any eq www

access-list deny tcp any any eq www

access-list permit ip any any

access-group in interface inside

Hope this helps and let me know how you get on -

Re: PIX-Internet Problem

I did the both suggestions , but still internet is not working ... Error

Web page is not available




Can't find DNS server ,

Note: if i remove this access-list applied to inside interface then my internet works fine ... I higly appreicated your response ... hope to see new workarounds ...



Re: PIX-Internet Problem


Can you post me your full PIX config, either here on the forum or direct to me at

Pls remember to change passwords and real IPs - Thanks.

Re: PIX-Internet Problem

From the outside in, everything is blocked on a pix, so long as it is not part of a connection originated in the outbound direction from the inside interface. Your access list 100 is applied to the outside interface - it will allow some icmp traffic thru, and it will allow people on the internet to access the http port of host x.x.x.x. Is x.x.x.x a web server?

Right now, you have nothing blocking any internal machines from making outbound connections. All internal machines should be able to do just about anything they want. With the above configuration, what does not work?
