CISCO PIX 501 - Static Routes and Dynamic Internet IP address
Posted on 2006-03-21
I have created Static Routes on PIX 501 with a static Internet connection but never when I the internet connection is Dynamic DSL. I would like to be able to create static routes so that I can access various machines from outside of the LAN. I use TZO which provides me with a FQDN that points to my dynamic IP address. The TZO application checks my IP address for changes every 2 minutes.
Below is my current network setup.
DSL Modem - Outside Address - Dynamic
| - Inside Address - 192.168.254.254
Terminal Server - Inside Address - 192.168.254.50 Port 3389
I would like to install a PIX 501 between the DSL Modem and Unmanaged Switch. Do I simply
1) Allow my DSL modem act as a bridge a forward all requests to the PIX 501?
2) Set the inside IP address of the PIX 501 to 192.168.254.2
3) Create the static route for my Terminal Server as follows:
access-list InBound permit tcp any host 192.168.254.254 eq 3389
static (inside,outside) tcp 192.168.254.254 3389 192.168.254.50 3389 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
Thanks for the help.
