Cisco PIX Firewall - Return Web Page?

Posted on 2004-11-18

Hello Everyone,

I would like to have my PIX firewall return a "default web page" if there is no traffic returning from my web servers on port 80 or 443.  I know that in the past this was possible with the Local Directors and the Caches.  Is this also a capability on the PIX?

This is my version / hardware info:

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.2(2)
Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 2.0(2)
Hardware:   PIX-506E, 32 MB RAM, CPU Pentium II 300 MHz
Flash E28F640J3 @ 0x300, 8MB
BIOS Flash AM29F400B @ 0xfffd8000, 32KB

Thank you,

    The PIX is not capable of this at all.
