Static IP with Cisco PIX 501

Currently, I have Road Runner, and the Cisco PIX 501 gets it external ip address via DHCP. I changed my ISP the other day to verizon, which assigns a static ip, with their DNS, Gateway and Subnet information provided to me. I would like to change the Cisco VPN from DHCP to static, but do not know the commands. Can someone write them out, substituing (ipaddress) for where the ip address would go, (DNS) for where the DNS would go, etc.  Thanks!!! :)

Taurus042Commented:
you need to add
ip address outside [your new IP] [your new subnet mask]
route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 [your new default gateway]
(without the brackets)
You may also need to remove
dhcpd auto_config outside
by entering
no dhcpd auto_config outside

When it comes to DNS I do not know as I have never configured a PIX to use DNS.

Also, you'll need to configure whatever's on the other end of the VPN with the new IP address.  (Looks like a site-to-site VPN, so you should just need to configure one router/pix/whatever, rather than a bunch of software clients.)

If I do not put in the DNS vaules, will the computers be able to browse the internet? I thought DNS was crucial to domain name lookup (domain to ip translation). Is there a way of entering the DNS information provided by Verizon?

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

 
TekServerCommented:
Currently, your client workstations are receiving the following DNS info:

dhcpd dns 192.168.10.1

I presume that this IP address is a domain controller or standalone DNS server, since DNS lookup is currently working.  Changing the external IP address shouldn't affect this, though you could change the forwarder address(es) on the DNS server to the DNS info from Verizon, if you wish.  It's not required; no ISP that I know of will block your access to other ISP's DNS servers.

Sorry for not answering back. I've been dealing with some family issues. Ok, so I tried the commands from Taurus042, but the PIX keeps giving the error message "not enough arugments. Below, I wrote out the vaules (Gateway, IP) that my ISP gave me, and if you can, please give me the exact commands I need to put into the PIX to erase the settings it has now, and add the ones I need:


IP Address: 34.234.112.132
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway Address: 34.234.112.1
DNS 1: 68.233.233.222
DNS 2: 68.233.233.222

(I changed the numbers from the actual numbers)
Thanks,
Adam :)

Log into Pix, then type (or copy) the attached commands.

Note that the 4th line is probably optional, but I'd put it in anyway.

After the "sh run", check the config before saving it with "wri mem".

Forgot to mention, I built your config in a simulator (http://www.gns3.net/) and performed the steps I listed to verify them.  It worked fine in that very excellent simulator, so it should work fine in your Pix.

Wow, your amazing!!! I am going to try it right now and see if it works. Am I able to change the DNS information to what my ISP gave me?

TekServerCommented:
Assuming you're running your workstations on a Windows domain, I wouldn't change the DNS.  As I mentioned earlier, the DNS setting for DHCP is apparently currently pointing to a Windows server, which is as it should be.  In a domain, if the workstations are looking to a DNS server other than the domain controller (or DNS server for the AD domain), odd and difficult to troubleshoot issues will arise (trust one who knows and spent a couple of weeks finding this out the hard way the first time I encountered it!).

If you wish to use the new DNS server settings for your new ISP, the appropriate place to do that would be in "Forwarders" on your domain DNS server.  This is not really necessary, because DNS servers really don't care who accesses them for lookups, and ISP's generally don't care what DNS servers you use.

However, if you do want to change the settings, go to your DNS server (probably your domain controller), go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> DNS, right-click on the server in the left pane and select "Properties", click on the "Forwarders" tab, then enter the new DNS server IP addresses where it says "Selected domain's forwarder IP address list:" and remove the old entries.  Click "OK" and you're done!

I've attached a screen shot of the Forwarders tab so you can see what it should look like.  I left the DNS addresses visible; they're for Network Telephone and Cox Communications, respectively.

Ok. I understand now. I just finished updating the settings on the PIX (With no errors!), and next week I will hook up the PIX in my boss's office in MA (I am in NY right now). You have been really great. Thanks so much for everything! I will let you know how everything worked.
