I am trying to get the PIX 506e working .
I am able to log int o the PIX using hyper terminal

I have a DSL Connection ( I don't have a Static IP)
 
   DSL Modem ------> PIX ----> Switch ----->PC, Mac (workstation)

What is the command to PIX to recognise the IP address from DSL modem ( Trying to set up the External IP address for the PIX)

or
 
Can any one give the steps , where  PIX can get the External IP address

Here is how to configure ip address:

First define the security levels and name for interfaces.

nameif ethernet0 outside security0
nameif ethernet1 inside security100

ip address inside ip_address netmask
ip address outside ip_address netmask

Here is the link to complete setup guide with example.

Parahsax,
  1. nameid defines the security of the ethernet0 and ethernet1

  2. ip address outside ip_address netmask ( This command assigns the IP address manually) I would like to get the IP address from the DSL modem.
      " ip address outside dhcp setroute "  <- This command is supposed to get the IP address and set it as External IP address to the PIX ,
         but its not happening

Am i mising something. I am new to networking.

The order of Command follows :

  1. interface ethernet0 10baset
  2  interface ethernet1 10baset
  3. nameif ethernet0 outside security0
  4. nameif ethernet1 inside security100
  5. ip address outside dhcp setroute

These command in order would enable the External IP address from DSL Modem ?

don't forget your default gateway

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 12.50.65.70

(substitute your router's or ISP router for the fictional 12.x number i supplied)

thanks,
