Open Ports 9002, 9003, and 9005 on Pix 515e

I need to open 3 ports on my Pix to access a server outside of the network.  I need to open ports 9002,9003,9005.  Please help.

"The PIX Firewall's fixup commands tell the PIX Firewall to perform additional application inspection on the specified protocols. This additional inspection is needed on some protocols, because some protocols include the source IP address within the data payload of the packet."

So, no, they should not necessarily be blocked unless you have specified so.
Not sure what you're asking for ? Are you asking to allow incoming connections ? or outgoing connection from PIX ?

If incoming what is the public ip ? or is it to the assigned ip on the outside interface ?

If it is outgoing then to which ip address ? or any ?

Are you trying to reach those ports on an IP address outside the firewall?

Are you currently restricting access by port on an incoming private access-list or outgoing public access-list?

I'm trying to reach an outside IP address.  We have a program that connect to an IP accross the internet.
So you already have an access-list applied on the inside interface, so add these;

access-list <Name> permit tcp any host <Outside IP Address> eq 9002

access-list <Name> permit tcp any host <Outside IP Address> eq 9003

access-list <Name> permit tcp any host <Outside IP Address> eq 9005

access-list <Name> in interface inside

Replace the <Name> with whatever is applied there. Also if it is a udp port then change the 'tcp' in the lines above.

I actually don't have anything applied on the inside interface.  Do I need another access-list with this one?
If you don't have anything applied then by default all traffic from inside to outside is allowed.

Jan SpringerCommented:
Do you have an access-list applied to the outbound interface?

If no, what happens then you attempt to connect?

Can you reach the remote IP with a traceroute or pathping?
fd1906Author Commented:
no access-list applied outbound.

Here's a strange occurrence...I can't ping the IP address of the unit I want to connect to (outside the network) let's call it 67.100.x.x but I can ping from behind the pix, however, from my other network (not behind the pix) I CAN ping the IP address that I want to connect to (67.100.x.x).  Any ideas?
Can you post your configuration here ? Sanitized config (remove passwords and remove any octect from the public ip)

I figured it outside IP had the default class a mask when it should have had a 29 bit mask.
fd1906Author Commented:
I'm confused because I thought PIX would block all traffic that is not http, smtp, etc... port 9002,9003, and 9005 should be blocked, no?  But the plain config let's it go through.
