We have dual T1s coming into our 506E - and to the internet we have 255 IPs.  We have about 5 servers behind the firewall, i was wondering if it was possible with the 506 to do a NAT of the external straight to the internal?  If so, what do i need to assign the eth0 (outside) IP to?  and do i just create statics & access-lists to do the straight nat?

Thanks,
Nick

Yes, you can create multiple internal-to-external static NAT translations:

static (inside,outside) <public ip1> <private IP1> netmask 255.255.255.255
static (inside,outside) <public ip2> <private IP2> netmask 255.255.255.255
static (inside,outside) <public ip3> <private IP3> netmask 255.255.255.255

Etc..

>We have dual T1s coming into our 506E
I would say that actually you have a router in front of your PIX that connects to dual T1's. Are both T1's to the same ISP?
How many users do you support on the internal network, or is this mainly for inbound traffic to servers? The 506 was not designed as a datacenter firewall, it is more of a small-business box <50 users..

only 5 or so users on the inside - just developers - the T1s are for basic web servers and the like.

506 okay irmoore?  when our budget permits we'll probably get a 515.

Thanks,
Nick

You should be OK until your budget grows...
