You do not enter the DNS server IP anywhere in the PIX configuration, unless you use the PIX DHCP server function, then you would enter that IP address in the dhcp config that is passed to the clients. Try putting that DNS server IP into the Client's TCP/IP configuration and see if that works. If yes, and if your PIX is your DHCP server, then enter it in the dhcpd config:
   PIX(config)#dhcpd dns <ip address1> <ip address2>

Thank you lrmoore for your infor. The client have not been available. I have not input the TCP/IP data for the DNS server. I will either ask for more assistance from you or thank you once I have access to the client premise again.

Thank you lrmoore- once the dns server ip was input- all workstations were able to access the internet.
If I had to give you a grade it will be an A+ because your response was fast and accurate.
Thanks again
