Having the following connections:

To Internet----ROUTER CISCO S1700---------Switch-------CISCO PIX 501--------------PC


Should I set the PC default GW to the IP address of the PIX inside interface or to the IP of the Router interface ? Would it work ?
Notice that the PIX's default GW would be the IP of the router interface.

Thanks
Roberto

By the way, it wouldn't work if you set the default gateway to the router interface since they are not on the same subnet.

A default gateway must be on the same IP subnet as the end device - it is to the DG a device sends a packet to be passed to other subnets/networks.  

Hope this helps.
