Hi,

I understand it's possible to specify the local LAN port of my PIX on the WAG200G (under DMZ configuration)  a few questions::-

1) Will this configuration basically handover the firewalling in full to my PIX?
2) Do I need to make any "additional" configuration changes to either the PIX or ADSL router?
3) Should I  disable the firewall on the Linksys router in order for Internet traffic in full to hit my PIX?
4) Should I disable port forwarding on the Linksys router?

May thanks!

I would suggest you setup all your security needs on the PIX as it is much more configurable.
Pass everything through the DSL router and then get your PIX to do the hard stuff.
Performance should also be better than through the DSL router.

Here's my curent (and operational) config (bar MSN blocking statements!)  on my home cable connection:-

I'm looking to run the same config behind a DSL router, hence wondered what configuration changes I would need to make to the router to facilitate the same firewall rules?  Do I need two public I.P's?  so an I.P on the router, the other on the outside interface?
