Routing feature with a 4 ethernet interfaces pix 520, 2 for the internet.

Hello all.

I'm trying to configure a Pix 520 with 4 interfaces, 2 of them connected to different Vlans, and the other 2 connected to different ADLS routers atached to the internet.

We pretend to 'save' firewalls by means of using less firewalls with more interfaces. So we want 2 vlans to communicate between them and to the internet through 2 adsl independents routers.

Well, the question is if I can define 2 default routes for 2 diferents interfaces (the ones we have defined as outside security 0 and outside1 security 1)?

Greetings and thanks in advance.

José Luis.

Unfortunately José,

The PIX cannot replace a router, or Cisco doesn't want to make it a router, and for some good reasons. As the difficulty for users who will have to protect a dynamically routed network. It's just enough difficult to do a good job with static network.

Then you must absolutely use a router in front of your PIX to connect to both ISPs.

Thanks a lot, Ben.

No more headaches for me, since now. Fortunatelly I still have other resources to solve the problem. I will try 3 interfaces, only one of them for the internet, and the other 2 for communicating between them and the internet.

Thanks again and greetings.

José Luis.
