Hello im having a problem with a pix 501. The problem is that i does not give me an ip adress.

I have tried with 2 diffrent firewalls. Non of them will send me an ip adress. The firewalls that i have tried with are both new out of box.

I have set up about 10 pix 501 firewalls before. I have only tried the firewalls when using a windows xp computer SP2. The dhcp function works because it is
able to receive ip adresses for adsl modem. What could be wrong?

Are you wanting the PIX 501 to be a dhcp server to hand out IP address information to your computers? Have you tried a computer that does not have SP2 installed?

So, a checklist, just to recap:
   PIX DHCP client works on "outside" interface because it gets an IP address from the dsl modem - yes/no

   PIX DHCP server does not appear to give out IP addresses to your computer..  yes/no

   You have no other DHCP servers on your network anywhere - yes/no

   Your XP/SP2 computer can get an IP address if it connects directly to the DSL modem.  Yes/no

   You have tried 2 different brand-new PIX 501's right out of the box, both act the same way.

   You have followed this sequence - yes/no
      Power off the PC
      Power off the dsl modem
      Power up the PIX
      Power up the dsl modem
      Wait 1 full minute
      Power up the PC
      Check the PC using "ipconfig /all"  (post results of this if it still does not work)

   You are following step-by-step the setup guide  - yes/no

   You are sure you are using a good patch cable, not a crossover cable between the PC and the PIX 501?  yes/no

Are you still working on this? Do you need more information?
From your new question, I gather that this one is working now?

Hello, lrmoore. The cause of the problem was that our suppyler had provided us with a ADSL modem/Router giving out adresses in the 192.168.1.1 range causing the pix to crash or not to give out adresses.

Thanks for the input. Have a nice day. I will accept your answer.
