Re: DMZ port in PIX 501 ?

The 4-port card on PIX501 is similar to switch port. All ports belongs to the same inside segment. You cannot use any of them for DMZ or run as individual/independent port, i.e used as DMZ segment.

To get PIX that support DMZ, try to get PIX515E with at least 1 x 10/100Base-T port card. You can use PIX515E with default Restricted (R) license with max 3 interfaces. f you need more interfaces, get Unrestricted (UR). This UR license support more 10/100Base-T ports

By default, PIX515E comes with 2 x FE port. Get 1 additional FE card to have max 3 interfaces supported under Restricted (R) license.

Re: DMZ port in PIX 501 ?

The short answer to your question is no, the PIX 501 does not support a DMZ interface (like a Linksys router/switch does). The PIX 506 does not either.

To get to a PIX with a DMZ interface, you need a PIX 515e or greater with the correct number of interfaces in it.

Hi,

I think that link is only accessible to channel patners only because my CCO user name is not working .Any have now I am clear that switch ports can not be used as 'DMZ' ports. Thanks a lot .
