Network Address Translation: Solaris

I've inherited a Firewall One firewall running on a Solaris system.  I believe it is performing network address translation for two internal networks.  It appears to be doing this flawlessly for one internal network but there seems to be some kinds in the other.  Can you tell me how one goes about viewing and possibly changing the network address translation parameters in Solaris?

There are a number of ways to do it, depending on how you normally manage the FW-1 software.

1. If you still have the FW-1 CD's there is a client program which you can install on a win9x/NT pc to connect to the firewall and view/change settings. To do this you will have to know the Firewall One admin username and password to connect and add your PC's machine name to the $FWDIR/gui-clients file.

2. If you are running X from the firewall, you can use the $FWDIR/bin/fwui interface to manage and change firewall stuff. More specifically the $FWDIR/bin/fwxlconf utility can be used to setup Address Translation stuff.

3. Another way to do it is to view and edit the $FWDIR/conf/xlate.conf file which contains the Address Translation information for FW-1.

There's heaps of information on this stuff in the FW-1 manuals, so I suggest you get yourself a copy of the manuals if you don't already have one.
