Not sure if i am in the right group but i figured it is worth a go, any help would be greatly appreciated
Right i am going to apologise in advance if this is a really stupid problem and i am just being really dumb and missing something.
I have just bought a PIX 501 to replace a stolen Dlink firewall
All i want to do is change the internal interface ip to192.168.254.254 subnet 255.255.255.0
This was supremely easy on the dlink but not on this thing
Initially i tried to do it through the startup wizard, no dice there got a message about this address not being in the dhcp range. (if it is not possible to do it here then why the hell ask)
So i tried through the Pix management software, again no dice same error about dchp range. Went to change the dchp range and got told i couldnt as the new range didnt match with the interface subnet, lovelly catch 22 problem there cisco.
Next plan was to drag out the hyperterminal (btw i am on xp if thats any help) plugged into the console and got connected
here is the commands i did in console
configure terminal clear dhcpd ip address inside 192.168.254.254 255.255.255.0
dhcpd address 192.168.254.160-192.168.254.180 inside dhcpd dns 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 dhcpd enable inside
once i have quit out of that i either use the reload or just unplug the box to reboot the thing.
It then proceeds to work as a dhcp server and assign my machine with the correct address etc and i can get on the net. etc and a quick check through console shows all the right interface ip's
However i cannot get into the firewall through the web interface i assume it should now be at https://192.168.254.254 but all i get is page cannot be displayed
Is there some other setting that i am missing, please help before this thing goes for a short flight out of my office window
