I've just got a Cisco PIX 501 with Cisco 6.2(1) software on it.
Can PIX replace my existing "noname" router?
I have a DSL Modem connected to a router. The routers external IP is static, and cannot be obtained by either PPPoE or DHCP. According to my ISP i have to define an external IP, a mask, and a gateway. If i dont define an external gateway, the router cant connect me to the internet.
I cant find anything in the PIX firewall about an external gateway. If connect the DSL modem to the PIX external interface and define the static IP on the PIX it cant connect me to the internet. If i leave my old router on the DSL modem, and connect the external interface on the PIX to the LAN, and my own computer to the internal interface on the PIX, the PIX external IP will be obtained by DHCP (IP, subnet, AND gateway) and is now able to connect.
Where do i define this gateway, like on my router?
