Pix questions

1. Do PIX's have syn flood protection enabled by default?
2. Do PIX's block packets from the WAN coming in with a source IP that is in a private class?
3. What does fixup protocol mean? Does it mean the PIX has the capability to examine this traffic specified at a high level (ie: fixup protocol http)
thanks

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Yes
2. PIX blocks packets from ALL addresses in the WAN
3. Yes, fixup is a "deep packet inspection" feature that looks into the packets at the application layer
