PIX Limitations

when using the names/name command on the pix , i just read about a limitation of 16 characters in the "name"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/pix/pix61/command/reference/mr.html#wp1026003

however .... this line from our current config would seem to argue otherwise!

name xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx urlthatistwentyninecharacterslong.com

my question is I've got a MUCH longer url i'd like to use with this dynamic nat

name yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy urlthatisfiftysomeoddcharacterslong.com

i'm afraid it will either just flat out not work or act funny....any advice?

we are working on upgrading to the new asa, but gotta keep this pix going until then

Re: PIX Limitations

Are you sure you are running version 6.1 of the PIX software?

In version 6.3 and above, the maximum character length with the name command is 63.

Hope this helps.
