I configured the pix to do pat from inside to outside and it worked great. The next day I configured 8 access-lists to the inside and outside interface. I also put an ip address on the dmz and did a no shut. Pat stopped working and none of the access-listed worked. I did a clear xlate several times. I deleted those access-lists I configured. Still did not work. So, I back out the changes and used the original setup I have, which I knew worked. I did another clear xlate but pat still did not work. I unplugged the cat5 from the dmz on the pix and notice that the 100 MPS light was still on. Still nothing was working. Finally, after two hours I reloaded the pix and when it came back up pat started working? In addition the 100MPS on the DMZ light when off?
Are you suppose to reboot the pix after applying access-list or changing ips on any of the interfaces?
Is the 100MPS light suppose to turn off when you unplug the cable?
