Re: PIX "telnet x.x.x.x outside" not working

You can't actually telnet to the outside interface of a PIX unless you come in over a VPN tunnel, even with the command you entered. This is part of the security of the PIX, telnet is NOT a secure protocol (passwords sent in the clear), so you don't want to be telnet'ing to it over a public network.

Your best bet is to use SSH instead of Telnet, then you can SSH directly to the outside interface.

Here's how to set it up:

and here's a link to a free SSH client called Putty:
