shouldnt i be able to? alias

ive added an alias command on my pix and now i can only access the dns server via public ip 67.x.x.x - if alias is another name for something why cant i access the dns server by it's internal ip also 10.10.5.x?

i have to have two rdp connections for the same dns server - if i come in via vpn i have to use 10.10.5.x but if im inside i have to use 67.x.x.x - the server guys are complaining.


thanks - Jerry


Re: shouldnt i be able to? alias

Try this example. Replace with your IP address

static (dmz,inside) translated_IP real_ip dns

ip address inside

ip address dmz

static (dmz,outside) x.x.x.x netmask

static (dmz,inside) x.x.x.x netmask dns

Re: shouldnt i be able to? alias

after i read your reply this morning i was able to ping the internal ip in the dmz - from inside 172.16.1.x with out any changes but as fast as it worked it stopped working again. i have this:

static (DMZ1,outside) 67.13.3.x netmask

then i added this:

static (DMZ1,inside) 67.13.3.x netmask

cleared xlate and i still couldnt ping it.

im stumped - Jerry
