Hi,
We have a web server that we have had some problems with. The web server has managed to bring down our ASA5510 by swamping the Inside port with packets. We believe we have resolved the problem by stopping a Filezilla ftp service but we would like to isolate the web server behind a 2nd physical PIX 515.
How would you suggest this was setup? would you suggest making the PIX 515 transparant? The PIX only has 2 ports.
Many Thanks,
Jaime

Unlike the ASA, Pix515 running v6 software do not have the option to operate in transparent mode. Anyway, I prefer to operate the Pix in routed mode. This do involve changing the server IP address and possibly some nat setting need to change.
