Novice to PIX....

I have a Cisco PIX 501 running 6.3 and I am not getting resolution of any IP from my workstations, but I am able to ping from the firewall itself.  What should I check?

Thanks

First thing to do assuming that you have all other stuff configured properly;

nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
global (outside) 1 interface

Configure this on the pix and see if it helps, if not then need to see your configuration. Just remove the 2nd octect of your public ip address and remove passwords.

Cheers,
Rajesh

icmp responses to workstation pings to external hosts are disabled by default. The PIX itself can ping, but not a workstation is OK.
Just try using NSlookup to try to resolve dns names, or open up a web browser.
Pinging is not a good test of a new PIX install..

Looks like the NAT translation was the problem
