Cisco Pix 515 - No route to host error (Newbie alert, be gentle)
Posted on 2002-07-04
I have a Cisco PIX 515 which isn't Pixing.. i've detailed exactly what i've done so far, so please, when you've stopped giggling, could you offer some advice as to why I get "No route to host" error! -- btw, I issued a write erase / reload to complete wipe it clean first.. so:
Setting up Port Address Translation
pix> global (outside) 1 x.x.x.x netmask 255.255.255.255
(x.x.x.x being my static IP address supplied by my ADSL company)
pix> nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0
Setting up Security Levels
pix> nameif ethernet0 outside security0
pix> nameif ethernet1 inside security100
Setting up DHCP
pix> dhcpd address 10.0.0.10-10.0.0.25 inside
Setting up DNS
pix> dns <um, can't remember the command i used here>
..and thats basically it.
My client machine gets a DHCP address, and the DNS address of my ADSL provider. If I tracert it just fails at the first hop.
If I ping an external address directly from the Pix, I get "no route to host".
So, could anyone please tell me what i've missed and also, (as a bonus) tell me what other things I need to do in order to have a nice secure firewall!
Many thanks in Advance.
