PIX 501 10 User License Problem - No Connection to WAN
Posted on 2006-04-13
I have a strange problem with my 501 PIX. It's been two weeks with no problems till today. This morning I had only two computers on. One computer was a static IP Address and the second computer with Dynamic. I notice that the dynamic computers has an ipaddress of 192.168.1.33. I'm not sure why its so high on the octet. The other problem is the static computer has an ipaddress of 192.168.1.2 and its connection to the internet is intermittent. Today, I tried to remoteconnect to my static computer (made no changes to pix that would of cause a problem, port 3389 is enabled and forwarded to static computer), and I get an error message that says "connection to computer is lost". In other others, because of my 10 user license agreement, I cannot connect to my computer.
Here are my questions:
1. I don't understand why I only have two computers that are having intermittent connection to the internet due license agreement. The fact is Only two computers are on and connected, not above ten.
2. If I connect to my RemoteComputer x 10, but then disconnect the connection x 10, will PIX still think the Ten connection stil exists? If so, how can I decrease the lease/hold time?. For some strange reason, the PIX still thinks there are ten computers connecting through the PIX, when in fact there are only one or two connections.
500 points for this..
