Hello All;

   I am trying to set up my PIX router to axcept
Interface Ethernet1 Auto
But is states that:  ethernet1 interface can only be set to 100full

I read that is the "Outside Interface" is set at 100Full
That the Inside would be the same?
Found here on "Page 7"  http://tinyurl.com/45fsk

So I set the "Outside Interface Ethernet0 auto"
And then tried to set the "Inside" and it still will not let me?

Any information on how to do this?
Reason why I am needing to set it up as "Auto"
Is that I am getting ready to hook into a "D-Link 24-port Switch"
That I just got.

Thank You All

The reason you can't set that interface is because it is a virtual interface that spans all ports on the in-chassis switch.

Thank You lrmoore;

  Could you explain a little more about this please?
What can I do?

Will I be able to hook into my new "D-Link Switch"?
This is the type that I have

You should not have any problem uplinking to the D-Link switch.

Read the Note, under Step 1 of configuring the PIX in the link that you posted in your original question post. It explains that Ethernet1 is fixed at 100 full, and each of the switch port interfaces will independenly auto negotiate speed and this is not configurable.

Thank you for the information.
I was not really sure if it would work properly or not.
So that is the reason why I ask.

Thank You, and now I understand the Step 1 that you referred too.


Thank You
