Pix Firewall Configuration - Please help with config

Posted on 2012-09-10
Last Modified: 2012-09-11
I am trying to configure my pix but I cannot get any traffic to pass through it. From the command line of the pix I can ping the DG (modem) and my laptop but I cannot ping through the pix. The outside IP and DG are the correct addresses. I need to use nat overload aka PAT as I have one external IP and multiple internal hosts. I want to allow all traffic from the inside out. Below is the configuration of my pix firewall. It's a 506e. Please let me know what I am missing?

    Accepted Solution

    For starters, try removing: access-group outbound in interface inside
    You can ping to the internet from the PIX?

    Thank-you erniebeek. I needed that second set of eyes. Don't know why I was applying an ACL to my inside interface for outbound traffic, especially when I want to allow everything out....Anyways removing the 'access-group outbound in interface inside' did the trick. Thank-you sir and have a good day.
