Cisco PIX 501 Setup
Posted on 2006-04-18
We're opening a small office. Our internet provided just came in an installed our T1 and left a router in the closet. We purchased a brand new Cisco PIX 501 Firewall as well as a Dell 24 port switch (34xx series). I just got an email from the provider with our 6 public IP addresses. On this list, it has an entry stating "address of customers default gateway (provider IAD) and it's a 65.x.x.x. address. Since we still have to build out our server infrastructure, we would at least like to allow some of our sales people to come into the office and get wireless internet connectivity for now. I have an extra Linksys wireless router. My question is, do I simply hook up the PIX 501 to the router the ISP left in the closest, then the Linksys to the PIX ? I then have to change the config on the pix to include that public IP address, correct?
Sorry, not much of a networking guy.
