Can they static route? Wanting to use a pix501 on a small network to replace an old 10megabit cisco 1602 router and cheap d-link firewall. Doesn't need anything else besides static routing
ok I have another question. The install guide for this thing acts like it will only allow up to 10 inside active hosts to "use" it. Is this in relation to the vpn tunnels or all network traffic? From the sounds of it it means any traffic but I want to double check. I was really wanting to change out our old equipment
This is the guide im reading
Active Host Limitation
The PIX 501 supports up to 10 active hosts on the inside network, or 50 active hosts on the inside
network if the optional 50-User License has been purchased. A host is considered active when any of
the following statements are true:
The host has passed traffic through the PIX Firewall in the last 30 seconds
The host has an established NAT/PAT translation through the PIX Firewall
The host has an established TCP connection or UDP session through the PIX Firewall
The host has an established user authentication through the PIX Firewall
Refer to the System Properties>Timeout online help within PDM for the default inactivity timeout
values associated with each of the preceding bulleted items.
You read it correctly. Unless you purchase the 50 host license then 10 is your limit. The 501 is a pretty small device so it's not going to do a whole lot...
It is all traffic. A host is a host is a host. VPN traffic or regular network traffic will meet at least one of those conditions.
