Cisco PIX 501: Can I place the outside/inside on the same subnet?

Hello All!

I am a complete routing/firewall/Cisco newbie so please bear with me and forgive my lack of knowledge as you read my question! It's in two parts: the "is this possible" part and the "how do I accomplish it" part.

I have a 192.168.1.X/24 network with a gateway of 192.168.1.1. I want to take 10 computers and restrict their access to the network (only allowing HTTP in and out to the gateway). Is it possible to place these 10 PC's behind the PIX 501 and accomplish this? Difficulty: I must keep the IP and subnet of the 10 PC's the same as the rest of the network.

If so, how would I do this? I have already set the IP of my outside and inside interface, created the HTTP rule and disabled DHCP. Now what do I do? Define static routes or something? I'm in over my head at this point in the config.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Mike

Mike,
So you need to allow them access to any thing  in the network and only HTTP for outside, correct?
this can be done by defining access list for those group of IPs, and you may want to post a link Q in the firewall TA

here is an example where it allows only port 80, but rarly some webservers use different ports than 80

fm250,

Basically I want to place 10 PC's behind the firewall, only allowing http in and out, only allowing outbound traffic to the gateway (192.168.1.1), and keeping both the inside and outside IP range and subnet the same...

BTW, if you are securing the network as you mention in the other question then you should have all of your PCs inside the network, then define access lists

did you look to the example above, also your other question should be just a pointer to this one, so you can track the comments.
