Pixes don't RIP?

After adding route statements to an additional 515 we installed to support an extranet connection (we have 2 515s running in failover mode for all other connections), the routes were never propagated and had to be added manually to our core switch as our default route directs traffic to the existing Pixes. In running a sniffer we never saw a RIP packet coming from our Pixes so I'm wondering if Pixes do not support RIP?

I don't think the PIX has any routing protocols available.

Re: Pixes don't RIP?

Guys:

The is can only listen to rip updates. It can not exchange routes.

Clip form CCO:

The PIX Firewall learns where everything is on the network by "passively" listening for RIP network traffic. When the PIX Firewall interface receives RIP traffic, the PIX Firewall updates its routing tables. You can also configure the PIX Firewall to broadcast an inside or perimeter interface as a "default" route. Broadcasting an interface as a default route is useful if you want all network traffic on that interface to go out through that interface. Refer to the rip command for more information.

Re: Pixes don't RIP?

PIX can listen RIP route but it can only advertise the default route, the route to the Internet. And it must be configure for it.

The next version should supports OSPF with or without limitation, time will tell.

Re: Pixes don't RIP?

How does one configure a Pix (ours are currently on 5.3) to advertise the default route.
