It is all up and running, VPN works, seems solid and firewall is functional.
What I would like to do is use PDM to access the "web based" monitor panel that is normally only accessible on the inside interface - remotely. Seems logical that I VPN in and then put in the IP address (as if I were inside) but when VPNd in, it cannot see the ip of the inside eth port. I'm missing a setting somewhere. Any Pix experts out there?
On a side note, the same PIX was pretty unstable - locking up randomly after 2 to 15 minutes - all ports, even console. It hadn't been powered up in at least 4 years prior to this week. So I opened it up, reseated the memory and processor, and it has now been stable all day. Any opinions on the reliability now (given this little information) or if it becomes a critical link in the network should I be throwing down $300 for a new one?
