Reading through the book "Cisco PIX firewalls" by R. Deal. I'm confused by some of the examples, one in particular. Let's say I have a PIX with 2 interfaces, inside and outside....call them networkA and networkB respectively. I want any host on the internal network to be able to initiate connections to the outside network without doing NAT. What are the commands to do this?
Ok, now let's say that in addition I want any host in the outside network to be able to initiate connections to the inside network without NAT. What are the commands to do this?
The static command is where I'm falling down. Just to verify...In your example, is the host 10.10.10.1 on the outside network (the access-list is a little different than I'm used to...is www a named host)? If so, this would gel with the example in the book. Conceptually, I was expecting that to be the destination address.
Excellent. Thank You. For the record, there are quite a few significant errors in this book, this is just one of them. I'm to the point where I'm beginning to question the quality of the information I'm reading.
