Dynamic Address Translation
Posted on 2005-05-16
In a PIX 515E I have this command:
pixfirewall(config)# global (outside) 1 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.255.0
To my understanding the above statement displays my public address as a public ip address pool. Why would I need this and whats the benefits of this? My goal is this:
[S0/0 220.127.116.11] Internet Gateway Router [e0/0 18.104.22.168] -> [outside 22.214.171.124] PIX 515E [inside 192.168.85.17] -> [192.168.85.199] Catalyst Switch -> out to the user network 192.168.85.20-180.
Public IP: 126.96.36.199
Private IP: 192.168.85.4
Now, I don't see how that global (outside) command will benefit me or any purpose in my network?
