Firewall (simple) I hope.
Sat, 22 Sep 2001 01:10:01 -0500
I must be missing some thing here.
I have GLobal IPs on both side of my fire wall.
basically it is this:
INTERNET -> ROUTER -> FIREWALL -> SWITCH(Lan)
now I have no rules yet I did turn on ip forwarding and both outside and
inside interfaces have IPs why can I not ping through the firewall. I can
ping from the router to the inside interface of the firewall. but not past
I can ping from a server on the lan side to the outside interface of the
firewall. Accually the ICMP requests are getting to the router they just cant
get back in through the firewall
I guess it workinng a little to well. do I have to do something with
postrouting for this to work?
or maybe snat the networks?
I do not know? HELP !!!!!!!
TIA Daniel Fairchild
trying to build a firewall :)
