I set up a PIX with 6.3.4 and 3.0.2.  Everything seems to work except the ability to access the main yahoo site.  I do not have any filters for Java or ActiveX.  I am not doing URL filtering.  Any ideas?

I will try the ping test.

Additional info, this is a T1. We replaced a SnapGear firewall with a PIX.

Can you access the yahoo IP addresses ?
Is DNS working internally ?
This sounds to me like a name resolution problem.  Maybe the PIX isn't configured to be able to see port 53 on Internet DNS servers in order to resolve the name, and you're just left with whatever DNS entries are cached on local machines ??

TD, You got me on thinking down a track...

I think it was actually a change in Windows 2003 DNS implementation.  It seems the 2003 implementation of DNS allows DNS to accept >512 byte UDP replies.  Cisco's DNS fixup seemed to limit it to 512K inspection.  I could have removed the fixup but instead increased it's max length.  As soon as I changed, I could connect with no issues.

Hmmm... I fail to see why, seeming I was the only one to mention DNS ?

*sigh*

Well, as you can see from my posting, I started back on the issue at 7:41am.  I had it solved by 9:30am...  I could have used your suggestion a bit earlier, maybe I could have resolved even quicker.
