How to harcode a DNS server from the ISP into the 501 PIX firewall?

Unable to access the internet using 501 PIX Firewall and DSL modem. Have been assigned a static ip from the ISP. I can ping the inside and outside, but can not ping the name to resolve to an ip address.

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>
Are you still working on this? Do you need more information?

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.
