Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and or port forwarding.

Does anyone know if the Pix 501 supports UPnP? If not does anyone know where I can find out how to forward port numbers on the pix. Looking towards moving servers to 2003 Server and take advantage of the Remote Web Workplace so any help would be very much appreciated.

Re: Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and or port forwarding.

No Upnp support. The pix can do all kinds of port forwarding. I am not familiar with remote web workplace, so I cannot say if it will work. If it simply needs one port to be forwarded (it sounds like it is something that would run on http, and thus you would just prepare the pix for it as you would for any other web server), you should be fine. If it dynamically needs multiple ports negotiate, the pix won't support it (unless Cisco updates PIX OS to have a proxy for it, a la H323, SIP, FTP and other annoying protocols)
