Can't route out PIX

Posted on 2006-06-25

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
  I have a PIX 501 hooked up to a Motorola Surfboard Cable modem for Comcast.
I cannot get traffic to route from the inside to the outside through the Pix. While consoled into the Pix,  I can ping out the outside interface to several internet IPs. But I cannot get any traffic to go from the internal network to the internet. I have erased the config several times and configured it by hand and via PDM. Whay am I missing here.

You dont need your accesslist, you can remove that statement.

What does sh interface say?
Have you checked the log?

I take it you are statically assigning inside host addresses?

Is this a DNS issue you are seeing? Have you specified a DNS server? Can you ping web servers?

If you want the CISCO PIX to be a DHCP Server and assign DNS, uses these command line examples;

dhcpd address 10.0.1.101-10.0.1.110 inside         <--- Sets the PIX to be a DHCP using the address range 10.0.1.101 to 10.0.1.110

dhcpd dns 209.165.201.2 209.165.202.129            <---- Sets 2x DNS servers as specified.

and btw you cant by deafult use ping from hosts behind your inside interface. You need to configure the pix to allow that.

remove the acl from the inside interface. It is not needed:

no access-group inside_access_in in interface inside

Taking martyboy's comment a bit further - allow icmp packets in
 access-list icmp permit icmp any any
 access-group icmp in interface outside

Now you can ping from an inside host, assuming that the inside host has 192.168.20.1 as the default gateway.

Your config is fine.  Remove the access-list as mentioned above.  Power cycle your comcast modem and let it come up for 30-60 seconds.  Then power up your pix and wait for 60-90 seconds.  

Open your browser and enter http://72.14.203.99
See what opens up. If that works, your traffic is flowing. If not, let us know.  (we are assuming that your computer has a proper address, subnet mask and gateway of 192.168.20.1)
If you have a properly configured DNS entry, you should be able to open http://www.yahoo.com.

If you want DHCP services, the proper way to configure for your setup is:

dhcpd address 192.168.20.10-192.168.20.25 inside
dhcpd auto_config outside
dhcpd enable inside

Let us know.....
