Hi
Could you tell me what exactly mean "pdm location" in Cisco PIX config file.
For example:

[...]
pdm location 10.0.0.2 255.255.255.255 inside
pdm location 10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 outside
pdm location 213.xxx.xxx.19 255.255.255.255 outside
pdm location 213.xxx.xxx.20 255.255.255.255 outside
pdm location 10.0.0.3 255.255.255.255 inside
[...]

It's simply mapping your networks that it see's. Kind of like a routing
table for PDM.

Think of it as an ACL for PDM... If you are coming from those subnets (or
hosts) you can access PDM... if not, not.

Re: Cisco PIX pdm location
hi,

Hope this will clear your doubts.

For example,

pdm location 172.18.124.102 255.255.255.255 outside

what the above mentioned command means is ...


!--- Assists PDM with network topology discovery by associating an
external
!--- network object with an interface. Note: The pdm location
!--- command does not control which host can launch PDM.

But appears to be the next best thing because although the PIX may have a
route to a specific host in its normal routing tables if it doesn't have the
host (or the hosts subnet) defined as a 'location', the host won't be able
to run PDM.
