still cant access internet (Nisha)

Hi Nisha

Ive done what you instructed to me before to set a route outside and make changes to the global statements. Point the workstations to the inside ip of the PIX 501(192.168.1.x)

globat (outside) 1 interface

route outside 210.23.197.x(peer router from ISP)

Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)

Hi Mhel -

Q. Have you got a inside router with route to PIX?

Q. Can you ping the inside interface of the PIX form any inside PC's ?

Q. Have tried using 'clear xlate' cmd?

Q. What exact error messages are you getting / seeing ?

Pls. let me know.

Thanks - -

Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)


Answer to the question(s)

1. Theres no inside router. The peer router that i mentioned is from the ISP side. The connection is:


2. Yes

3. So far, I havent tried it yet

4. If im pointing my workstation to the inside ip of the PIX, it cant connect to the internet




Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)

OK Mhel --

Ok, Mhel - -

Another question which I didn't mention on my previous post is, have you tried any packet analysis on the PIX, i.e. > debug packet inside src

To stop the debug use > no debug packet inside, you can do this also for the outside interface but use the src (source) IP that is coming in to your network (an IP say, from your ISP).

Also, I notice that you don't seem to have any 'route inside' cmd on your PIX config?

i.e. > route inside 1

Hope the above makes sense and let me know how you get on.

Thanks --


Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)

Mhel -

Forgot to metion another thing on my previous post, Please be aware the 'debuging' can generate high CPU usage on the PIX so advisable not to do this on production PIX.

Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)


I tried it already, the debug packet cmd. when im trying to add the route inside cmd, the output is "route already exist "



Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)

Mhel --

What does your PIX show when you do a 'show route inside' cmd ? Also, try cmd - 'no route inside' and then make sure you save it with cmd 'write memory' and then re-apply the 'ip route inside cmd' and see what happens.

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.


Re: still cant access internet (Nisha)


Just curious, but what exactly do you mean by not able to connect to Internet. If looking to your config, you have the correct statements nat and global set, also the route statement seems correct to me. But with this config the PIX would not allow ICMP echo's coming back to your internal network, so "ping"would not work in this config (better to let this disable though).

Net thing to check would normally be if you can connect to an HTTP server on IP-adres only, cause most problems are not related to packets not traversing through the PIX to the outside, but the other way around. What I have seen in many cases is that there the DNS server of the Provider is used for name-resolving (better would be a split dns solution, but this is of topic off course)

If you are using split dns, this would not work in this config, cause replies of the outside dns server cannot travel back to your inside dns server.

If this is the case you would have to open the appropiate UDP ports used for DNS resolving.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
