PIX 506e - Allow inbound traffic

I am creating a new network nat'd behind a PIX 506e.  I still need to allow users in the original network to access the new network.  Outbound traffic works because the PIX allows this implicitly.  I will have to close this down in the near future.  I can't seem to allow any inbound traffic initiated from the outside.  The log shows  
 
 %PIX-3-305005: No translation group found for tcp src outside:55.55.55.55/2832 dst inside:10.0.0.1/445
 
Basically I want to allow everything from outside network 55.55.55.0/24 to the inside network 10.0.0.0/23.

I believe that your access list entry should look something like this:



access-list 160 permit ip  55.55.55.0 0.0.0.255 10.0.0.0/23 0.0.1.255

Kdo, the access-lists on a PIX use subnet masks. You must be more familiar with the access-lists on a router that use an inverse mask...

access-list outside_in permit ip 55.55.55.0 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.0 255.255.254.0
access-group outside_in in interface outside

Oh, yes, assuming that you do not want to nat the traffic between 55.55.55.0 and 10.0.0.0, add these lines:

access-list no_nat permit 10.0.0.0 255.255.254.0 55.55.55.0 255.255.255.0
nat(inside) 0 access-list no_nat

Good catch....

I don't care how these devices represent the mask values internally -- you'd think that at least the language syntax would be similar.

Thanks lrmooore.  That worked.  But I have another question(s) about this.

How would I change the configuration to nat the outside address, so that they appear to be coming from the inside interface?

What would be the reasons to do or not to do this?  I understand nat going outbound is to hide the inside network, but why would I want to hide the outside network?

You can nat the outside if you have some overlapping addresses, or routing issues. Otherwise, I can't think of any good reason to do it.

I have done it when I want to get to a customer's private IP addresses and they overlap with another customer's private IP addresses.
